Vancouver Improv Sampler Tips and Techniques

The Vancouver Improv Sampler has a number of blocks that may require you to do some curved piecing, and that can be intimidating for some people. Of course, you can always make curved shapes without piecing, usually with applique, but if you’d like to try curved piecing, here’s list of improv tutorials to check out.

There’s a lot of repetition in these links, but rather than arbitrarily deciding which ones were better or which ones were more important, we’re sharing all of the tutorials that we’ve come across.
