►►► Key Points in this VIDEO Tutorial (When Life Gives You Scraps, Make a Quilt [Every Last Piece]) ◄◄◄

① String Quilting Basics: Learn a carefree way to piece "strings" of fabric and cut them into blocks. Then learn how to frame them with an hourglass block and pinwheel blades.

② String Quilting Shapes: Take strip piecing to the next level by stitching leftover pieces to a specific shape—it's a relatively simple way of creating free-form blocks that really make a statement.

③ Discover how to showcase scraps in on-point blocks, triangles, and Drunkards Path blocks.

④ Making Scrappy Stars: Perfect for small scraps, make stars from rectangles and squares, and then piece into background rectangles.

⑤ Nancy's Corner segment features Marilyn Badger and Claudia Clark Meyers, Quilters.

→ On location at Quilt Expo 2016 in Madison Wisconsin, award-winning quilters Marilyn and Claudia give Nancy a close-up look of their amazing exhibit of 22 quilts that they created together, even though they live hundreds of miles apart.
