Thanks for sharing your tips. Sometimes all those scraps seem intimidating. But I love the idea of a scrap quilt.

Thanks for your tips--great stuff! For others, I would definitely recommend that people read Liberated Quiltmaking by Gwen Marston. She doesn't have patterns, but talks a lot about her process, and I found it really helpful to think about things that way.

Here comes a stupid question :)

I, too, have piles of scraps and want to start piecing. Can you explain your use of interfacing?

I'm sure it's obvious to anyone who knows better, but ... *blushes*

I also wanted to show you what I've been doing with my great grandmother's quilt tops.

I'm not trying to advertise, I promise! I wanted to get your thoughts on these, if you have any suggestions for improving them? I haven't tackled full-size yet, although I have 3 of grandma's quilt tops that I want to finish for our family. I'm too afraid, I think. And they're too big for me to machine-quilt on my regular machine. To tie them feels like cheating :-/

Tips? Advice? Critiques? I'll take anything!

Thank you, your website is ever an inspiration!
