Lecture and Trunk Show
Thom states: The content of my talk is concerning a new delight I’ve found in using the fussy cut leftovers for construction of what I call Scrappy Improv quilts. Using Freddie Moran’s technique of gluing everything with the Elmers Purple Glue-sticks prior to stitching, I’ve done some small quilts using just scraps, most of them in the shape I find them in from the scrap bags. I come from a background of working with expensive sheets of stained glass where I’ve cut carefully to have as large pieces left over as I can manage and still get exactly what I want from the piece I have. Since then, I’ve saved all the bits and pieces of fabric big enough to work with for years and only now have begun to explore what to do with them.
