It's No Secret! I Love Scrap Quilts
I have made many of them, because of my Listen With Your Eyes system of making quilts, and because that’s why I started making quilts in the first place. The way the different colours just seem to work together in a scrap quilt, even if you wouldn’t put them together in a quilt fabric palette, has fascinated me since I saw a picture of a wonderful gypsy of a crazy quilt in a book.
There’s a chapter — Scrap Happy, in Karen Fail’s book, Celebrating The Traditions, in which Karen talks about me and my scrap quilts. Scrap quilt ideas seemed to pop into my head unannounced, and I would make another one, but…
“…my stash multiplied with each new quilt,
and it wasn’t log before I needed to find a way to
slash my stash. “
Do you have that problem?
Ways to slash your stash are especially important when money is a bit tight.
