Statement: A capriccio (also Caprice) is a piece of music, usually fairly free in form and of a lively character. This free-form composition seemed to follow that theme with movement and repetition. While many of my quilts are created “improvisationally”, this particular quilt is not improvised. It was created with templates and yet, the process is so easy and forgiving.
Did you know that curved seams are more forgiving than straight seams in a quilt? If you have straight seams - they should remain straight after quilting - and that’s kinda hard. But if you have curved seams and they curve a bit more - nobody can tell.
Machine pieced using both improvisational patchwork and templates. Free-motion machine quilting (domestic machine, no-stich regulation)

Choose your own difficulty. Click the 9-patch grid to change the number of pieces. Click the circle arrow to make the puzzle pieces rotate instead of stable orientation. Also, there are tips under the "?" on the upper right of the puzzle. If you'd like a full-screen version, click the button below. Have fun!
