4915 - Scrap Fun    ($80)

Tuttle, OK    USA

Width: 8.5"   Length: 10.25"

Materials/Techniques: Made totally from bright scraps and leftover black strips, except, for the binding which was cut to avoid piecing it so often.

Artist's Statement: The reason this has “fun” in the name is because that is what I had making it. Strips, usually 1½ to ¾”, leftover from previous projects get put into plastic bags by color and stay right near the sewing table, always available. But the population grows, and has to be thinned out from time to time and this quilt, made from scraps only a miniature quilt fanatic could cherish, is the result. The center was just a doodle in the beginning and I have been meaning to try the braid in a small format so that became the inner border. Thus the Scrap Fun.
