Improvisational quilting is a way to explore quilting intuitively without using rulers, templates, pins, or a plan. In this hands-on workshop at the Northwind Art School at Fort Worden, Robin will also demonstrate the “quilt as you go” process, and give a presentation comparing traditional, modern, and improvisational quiltmaking styles. Robin is a retired special education teacher from Portland who began quilting in 1973; she’s been teaching quilt workshops for 15 years now. Her guiding principle for everything she makes or teaches is to be “wide open.” The best ideas flood in, she says, when she opens mind, heart and imagination.
