7251 – Grandma’s Scrap Quilt  ($85)

Tuttle, OK   USA

Width: 8.5"   Length: 12"

Materials/Techniques: Blocks made from 18 dark fabrics and three lights with same pattern, but different color ways. Baby rickrack peeps out in the border.

Artist Statement: I remember my elders talking about quilts at the one or two quilting parties that my mother took me to. One elderly woman was very insistent that she would only make scrap quilts if she had enough goods to make an entire block. Didn't know what that really meant then, but this quilt is what I think she was talking about.

Dedication: To the quilt makers who didn't have the tools to work with we have today, but who made beautiful quilts anyway.

This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.

This quilt earned $85 for the AAQI.
