Cheryl Malkowski spends time in her studio creating quilts for books, fabric manufacturers, and her own pattern company. She teaches quilt classes, designs fabric, and this is her fifth book with C&T. Cheryl lives in Roseburg, Oregon.
Do you believe rules were meant to be broken? If so, this improvisational quilt-as-you-go technique is for you. Instead of dealing with precise paper patterns and cutting measurements, you'll learn how to piece fabric onto small, manageable batting blocks. Let your creative juices flow as you quilt directly on the blocks (not the entire quilt!), whether in large abstract zigzags or small structured stitches. After the blocks have been joined, all you need to do is add backing fabric and binding, and—voilà—it's finished!
