The book is does not provide a set of quilt patterns to follow, but rather proposes a set of parameters within which to create, which Sherri Lynn refers to as 'scores':
"A score or lead sheet, common to improvised musical traditions such as jazz, is a set of notations or parameters within which the improvisation is free to take shape".
Each test quilter was given a score to work with and was set free to create a quilt based on a set of instructions.
The score I was received was "Bias Petal Quilt".
Armed with a set of bias strips,and a large petal shape...
I set about to create my quilt...
Overall, I have to say that I have absolutely enjoyed this process! I consider myself an intermediate quilter and this technique presented itself with just the right amount of challenge for me.
I hand quilted it with perle cotton
I love the freedom we were given to create something within the limits of a score. I can't wait to see the book even though my quilt did not make the cut.

The quilt now hangs in my newly redecorated dining room.
The book will be released in March but you can pre-order it on Amazon.
