In this lecture/workshop combo, Beth will first present a lecture about her discoveries about scraps, then you’ll put her findings to the test by reworking a given block entirely in scraps. While all class members will work with the same block design, each person will be given different directions on color, value, contrast, and fabric placement to be used in their block as they sew. All fabrics are brought to the class as 3" squares and are put into a “scrap pool,” upping the scrappy fun of the completed blocks immensely! You’ll be taught the importance of value and creativity when choosing block fabrics, and in the end will be amazed by how one block can be transformed into so many different looks simply with fabric choices and placements. Shown below is the same block, with four colorations!
