Antique scrap quilts can be the most humble of quilts and, at the same time, the most complicated of all quilts to understand. Roberta Horton shows her techniques for making a scrap quilt, including how to free-hand cut shapes for a folk-art look. A selection of block patterns is provided, with possibilities for pieced, pieced-and-appliqued, and folk-art scrap quilts. Roberta shares advice on the interaction of fabrics within a quilt and how to choose just the right blocks. Unpretentious and honest - and, at the same time, beautitful - old quilts give today's quilters inspiration for coloration, composition, and fabric usage.
