Ann's Quilt DSCN0259a Quilt Lake House OUT OF THE BOX ** {58" × 66", 57" × 68", 56" × 64"} Ann Magetteri
Using up scraps and orphan blocks is part of our quilting heritage. Original scrap quilts were made from“good parts” of worn out clothing and feed bags and flour sacks. The next stage had us using up fabrics and blocks from other projects, sewing with what we had on hand. Today, advances in fabric delivery let us make “scrap quilts" out of new fabric: fat quarters, charm packs, jelly rolls, etc. So…bring your scraps, whatever the source, and your orphan blocks and even small pieces from your stash and come prepared to play. We’ll be sharing scraps – and fun! – with classmates as we build some scrappy blocks which can be added to later at home. And if you need to buy a bit of fabric to add interest, that’s OK, too.
