The BRAVEPATCH GROOVE w/Sherri Lynn Wood

Improv Quilting from the Heart

Welcome to Our Brave Space!



In BravePatch we are passionate about becoming wholehearted improvisers through our patchwork, and in our lives.


Improv happens through relationships. The liberating practice of improv quilting has the potential of changing the way we show up in our creative lives and in our relationships, in more flexible, authentic and responsive ways.

The world is changing and we are changing the way we relate in the world through the way we make patterns in our quilts!


Living, Quilting, Creating Courageously


Inside you'll find a multi-verse of curious and courageous makers, passionate about the liberating practice of improv quilting.  Together we are becoming flexible thinkers, wholehearted creators, and restorative agents of change within our communities. 

Improvising with patchwork has always been a restorative life practice that has helped me heal, grow and find my agency in the world. In this brave space you have the freedom to share your creative journey, your truth, your wisdom, and to tell and rewrite your stories in patchwork.


2022 A Year of Abstract Piecing 


Every month in 2022, we will go deeper and steadier into the themes of Abstract Piecing such as algorithms, scale, intuitive color, progressions, minimal/maximal, narrative… plus space, shape, architecture, symbol, materiality and more. Think of membership in BravePatch as a stand alone, month to month immersive SLOW course on Abstract Piecing, grounded in an active learning community of fellow improv quilters. VISION is something we MAKE together.
