I enjoy learning new things. I spent years reading about how to make quilts before I ever actually made one. Since then, I’ve made it a goal to keep trying new techniques, new products, and new ideas. My newest endeavor is to explore abstract quilts using improvisational methods. These are some of those experiments.
