The little crazy patch quilt was finished during quilt group on Monday.
While sewing last week, the woman near me asked what I was doing with all those pieces I trimmed off from my paper piecing. Toss them, of course!
She gasped and said she was a teacher of the use of Orts. Yeah, what?!
Orts are scraps-mainly a word to describe food scraps but she applies it to her piecing and said she would be glad to give me a crash course class!
I dutifully saved all the scraps and brought them this week to show her!
So, you sew the little pieces together and keep building your own spontaneous fabric. I got more adventurous each block I made.
Sew strips together or use little blocks as units...
...keep adding sections until you reach the dimensions you desire, in this case,
I am making them into 5" blocks.
Yeah, it is another crazy way but you just have to make one more!
