Episode 3109 Description and Preview
Marianne and Mary Fons explore using “orphan” quilt blocks—unfinished, vintage quilt blocks that you often find at garage sales or quilt festivals. The design is simple and quick enough—Marianne put together not one, but two variations! Marianne brings three quilts, inspired by a set of vintage orphan blocks from the early 1900s, for our discussion. You’ll learn an easy technique for making two Hourglass units at a time, how to pre-sash blocks for a speedy quilt top assembly, and how fabric choice impacts the style of your finished quilt.
Featured Quilt: Semaphoric
Semaphoric was designed by Marianne Fons and is featured in the Love of Quilting March/April 2018 issue. It will also soon be available in the 3100 series eBook.
