607 | Using Up Your Scraps with Square in a Square Blocks

Lessons in Creativity | Jenny Kae Parks | Runtime (23 min)

Scrap quilts can look amazing, especially when they look particularly random. Sometimes that randomization has to be coaxed a little bit so that, for example, a pocket of bright yellow doesn’t scream for attention. Jenny demonstrates cutting multiple layers of scrap fabrics at one time to get the required pieces for the blocks. She then shows organizing the scraps in color groups to match them while still accomplishing a certain level of contrast between the pieces. Once a couple of the blocks are pieced together, Jenny gets out some other scrap blocks she had already pieced and demonstrates how to lay them out to make sure you’re happy with the level of randomization before piecing the blocks together to form the quilt.

    I have watched several of your creativity quilting series and have thoroughly enjoyed them. I have been making quilts for about 10 years, and still have so much to learn. Jenny is a delightful teacher. She has the gift of being able to explain different techniques that are easy to understand and implement in my sewing. Thank you for these videos.
