How do YOU use quilting practice pieces?
I love to turn my practice pieces and blocks into small works that I use around the house.
I call them “vase quilts” and I try to match the fabrics to the flowers.
A Quilt by Any Other Name
I made this log cabin (the cut size of the logs is 1 inch, finished size is 1/2″) with hand-dyed fabrics. I used to dye fabrics a lot! Then I used it to test a few different motifs.
To make the vase quilt, I just added a binding.
But, a quilt by any other name is still a quilt.
Ask my grandson, Hugh!

May all of YOUR quilts become well-used and well-loved!
