An Improvisational Quilt is a quilt made without specific intention. A style of the Modern Quilter, most Improvisational or Improv quilts just begin, not with a concept necessarily, but grows out of improv piecing and develops as the quilter stitches it. Each quilter has their own style, method and motivation. While the quilters approach will be referred to as Improv Piecing, often it is easy to tell the unique styles and approaches taken. Like improv piecing, there are no rules or boundaries and it is as much of a style as it is an attitude.
