Well after 25 years of the Badlands Retreat we are all bound to have lots of scraps left over from all our projects. Here is your chance to use a few of them up. Join me in making a fun and easy scrap quilt. You can make this quilt as big or as small as you want. Each block is 10” so you can plan ahead or just start making them and quit whenever you are done!
General Sewing Supplies
The Angler Tool or Marking Pencils (light and dark) to draw diagonal lines for Sew and Flip.
For each block cut:
2 2 ½” X 11” strips of background fabric
1 2 ½” X 11” strip of dark fabric and 4 2 ½” X 4 ½” rectangles
1 2 ½” X 11” strips of medium to light fabric and 4 2 ½” squares
1 2 ½” square for center
4 2” squares for corner triangles
This top is interestingmodern or is a new twist on an old pattern. How do I pick the quilting designs and where do I place them? If this is confusing to you, bring your quilt tops and together we will have fun, with ideas flying everywhere, finding great design solutions. We will also create and stitch newly designed quilting patterns using rulers/templates, that look great repeated on our quilts. Together we explore step by step quilt planning strategies for quilts with more and higher contrasting colors, non-gridded geometric shapes and large open areas.
