Irene Roderick’s workshop was called Dancing with the Wall. It was an improvisational process class. We were limited to using only two solid-colored fabrics. Each of the quilts that the students made were very different from each other. This is mine at the end of the two-day class. I have quite a few blocks or components, but they aren’t sewn to each other, yet.
Here is Irene’s process: 1. Place fabric or component on wall 2. Step back at least 6’ to really see how it acts (reverse magnifier works) 3. Audition in several places 4. When satisfied, leave on wall and move to next component 5. Repeat.
