Elizabeth Barton has always been a lover of scrap quilts.... however not of tedious cutting out of specific shapes and pattern matching.... instead, she came up with a very different way of approaching the use of scraps.
Today I wanted to share with you one of the videos in Elizabeth's amazing new workshop "The Great Scrap Quilt". Her method of construction is fabulous and the quilt shown in this video is one that won the Edward Lambert Fiber Art Award. As you will see, her color selection is amazing, she knows just what fabric to put where!
