My friend Cindy Grisdela’s new book with C&T is out and it is guaranteed to satisfy all of your improv quilting needs!
Cindy and I met many years ago when she offered to give me a ride from Philadelphia, PA to Lewes, Delaware. We have been meeting for coffee, drinks, and dinner ever since. This is a photo of Cindy and I when our first books came out. Cindy had the tenacity to write another one!
Cindy is a kind and thoughtful friend and teacher. This book exemplifies those aspects of her character. It breaks down the key components of Improv—Color, Design, and Construction—for quilters of all skill levels.
From there, she leads the reader through a series of excellent improv quilt exercises.
And finally, last but not least, she spends ample time on exploring ideas for quilting your new improv masterpieces. Few quilt books take the time to do this. It is like BONUS material–two books for the price of one.
This is book is full of great information for the beginning improv student as well as more advanced stitchers who want to go deeper into the topic.
And the eye candy! Cindy is known for beautiful, colorful quilts full of interesting improvisational shapes that relate to the traditional quilt blocks. It is really fun to see so many of her quilts all together. Additionally, I loved the inclusion of many of Cindy’s earlier quilts.

I didn’t realize, at first, that when I was a student in each of your classes, I was in the presence of renowned talents. I feel so fortunate to have your book, Maria. I’ll want Cindy’s in print on paper as well. If you draw my name send the ebook to the next person. Thanks for turning me on to Improvisational quilting.
