Do you have a hard time getting out of your comfort zone?
Do you struggle with just "letting go" and seeing what you create?
Have you been curious about improvisational piecing, but have no idea how to begin?
If any of that resonates, I know you are going to love my guest interview today. Irene Roderick is a quilter, painter, and teacher and has a beautiful and distinctive style. Playing with line, repetition, and scale, she also incorporates a lot of natural hand-dyed fabrics into her work.
Even if you have no interest in improv piecing, I know you'll be inspired by her approach to the creative process.
We dive into:
- How Irene began quilting and developed her own unique style
- How to approach the creative process without fear
- What to do when you're "stuck" creatively
- Where you can find inspiration
- How Irene approached choosing fabrics/colors
"The hardest thing is to learn to trust yourself." Irene Roderick
