Scrap Quilting »
InstructionsIt's in the video. All I did extra was add four additional blocks and borders. The quilt was machine-quilted 'in the ditch' (right up seam lines) and then I hand-quilted in the Big Stitch style. Used #12 black perle cotton and a #5 Between needle. Took my time and enjoyed the process.

What was your inspiration?
Old-timey Southern scrap quilts.
What are you most proud of?
I had fun doing it.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Obviously take your time. I started this in December 2011 (when Craftsy came to my studio to film), put it aside for months, and then in October started hand quilting it. "No quilt before its time."
