Stash Jazz October 2020

Every quilter has a stash of leftovers—orphan blocks, large scraps and even fat quarters of ‘ugly’ fabric. This workshop will help you make a dent in using some of this fabric to create a beautiful modern quilt. The pattern is based on two PIECED blocks. However, you start by improvisationally piecing your stash into complex looking but easy to piece block sections. No partial seams required. The quilt can be made in a scrappy version OR you can use a more coordinated set of scraps and orphan blocks in a selected color palette. I will also show how using a background color in the pieced blocks can create a completely different look for the quilt.

What the class includes:

  • 2 Quilt layouts
  • In the class, you will see me draw from a bag of random scraps real time and see how I use what I have to piece an improvisational block.
  • I’ll demo using orphan blocks including blocks with ‘mistakes’ in them!
  • I’ll demo how to select and place your improvisational blocks in the quilt layout.
