Frau Fiber wants you to Quilt!

 

Wondering what to do with all your scraps, or you could use some of mine.  Piece, stitch, combine and layer to create a warm winter blanket!

 

A quilt is a type of blanket, traditionally composed of 3 layers of cloth and fiber: a woven cloth top, a layer of wadding or batting and a woven back, the layers are combined using a quilt stitch or tie.  The stitch can be done by hand or machine.  Quilting by hand provides a wonderful opportunity to slow down and bring a community of people together.
