Freedom Quilting

It's always rewarding to see the progress of a quilt resulting from a class that I taught, so I was pleased to have Vicky S. share her quilt.

Vicky's quilting guild invited me to teach a freedom quilting class based on the techniques in my book Log Cabin Quilts with Attitude. We had a fun day finding a new use for fabric strips that were left from previous projects. Vicky did a wonderful job of combining them into colorful log cabin blocks which she then cut on an angle resulting in a carefree, playful look. When she gets enough to make full size quilt, Vicky can check the arrangement and then stitch them into a quilt top. I can't wait to see the finished product.

This is a fun solution to the problem of reducing your stash, especially those bits and pieces that don't "fold nicely" on your shelf. Lose the guilt of storing too much fabric and enjoy the freedom of making a quilt entirely from your scraps.
