Scraps Make Magic

I am eager to clean out my closet, but in the interest of all of the ins and outs of Thanksgiving, I will wait until next Monday. In the meantime, I am having a fun time making a scrap quilt top that will also be hand quilted by the Amish.

This is the fourth quilt I made using this pattern I devised from the image of the the Tree of Life on The Safer Yetzirah Book. I cut all of the leftovers from other projects into 3″, 4″ and 5″ squares and cut those into triangles. Then it’s a building process. All of the 3triangles go together to make 4s. The 4s go together to make 5s. Four 5s become a square; the squares become rows; and the rows become the top.

Scrap quilting at its best!

Pittsburgh-based fiber artist, Louise Silk, creates art that combines aesthetics and functionality with meaning and memories. From the influence of a 1972 MS Magazine article to the current SILKDENIM label, her quilt experiences culminate in a display of her particular capacity to use her patchwork skills to piece together just about anything into an aesthetic meaningful whole.
