Yesterday, I taught a guild workshop “Scrappy Irish Chain.” Based on this quilt:
Participants had the choice of using 2″ squares or 2 ½” squares. Some struggled a bit to just use everything, but they did well in the end! I kept joking that one day, I’d like to find fabric with a kitchen sink on it … and then I could say that my scrappy quilts included everything, including the kitchen sink!
Everyone got at least 2 blocks made … some had several made by the time we left. I hope they all send me pictures of their completed quilts! (I included that as a Step in the directions!)
One used a dark blue for the background … I love it! Perhaps one day in the future!
I took a big bin of fabric that contained mostly donations to me. I told them that I’d be very happy if the bin was empty at the end of the day. About an hour before we were done, they realized that I was serious. Then quite a few scraps disappeared … but there was still LOTS that I brought home!
