Let’s have FUN with scraps! This is a stress free way of creating a FABULOUS scrappy log cabin block (12” or 15” finished square) in a non-traditional way.

“Crumb Quilting"

1/2-day workshop - $30 members, $55 non-members (includes membership)  

What DO you do with all those leftover scraps? Crumb quilts are the ultimate scrap fabric projects. Crumb piecing is one of those things that are as individual as every quilter out there. There is no one set way to use “crumbs” – the tiniest amounts of scraps (strips, squares, trimmed triangles, funky sizes, etc.) that you have – the ones you usually throw away because you don’t know what to do with them. Remember, those crumbs (of fabric) cost just as much per yard as the original fabric you bought that they came from. This is recycling at its very best, AND you’re quilting! No rules here except to use a ¼” seam allowance. No matchy-matchy.
