Did you catch the last HQ Live, Improv Quilting with Kim Sandberg? It was a fun show where Kim shared the improvisation-ally pieced quilt tops she created in response to her guild challenge and then proceeded to quilt one of them. Right there, LIVE.

Kim is our newest studio educator. If you come to a retreat at our facilities in Salt Lake City, or to Handi Quilter Academy, you’ll get to meet her.

Here’s some of the things you can learn if you watch this show:

1. New words! Like intentionally improvisational –  straightish –  facing

2. New use of threads

3. Watch Vicki Hoth step WAY out of her box and have fun doing it. If she can do it and not die from it, maybe we all can try something new?

4. New way to utilize Pro-Stitcher that you may have never thought of.


The good news is you can watch this show and all of our previous HQ-Live presentations on demand! Go to our YouTube channel here and be sure to click the subscribe button so you don’t miss any of our great videos.

Here’s Kim’s finished quilt from the show.

Are you ready to try a little intentional improv quilting?
