Scrap Quilts with Instructor Cynthia Brunz

Course Description:

Got Scraps and have no idea what to make with them?  Grab a friend and join Cynthia at this retreat and turn those leftovers into a lovely quilt or two.  Thursday night, Cynthia will share a number or her scrappy quilts made from various sizes and types of scraps (see examples above).  She will discuss what inspired her and how she selected the right scraps for each quilt.  Then on Friday morning, the fun begins as she leads you through how to find inspiration in the scraps you have and how you get those turned into a quilt.  Designs will be drafted and each student will begin to cut and sew their own unique quilt.  Not only will you see your own project take shape but you will also get to see other quilters transform their scraps into colorful quilts.  Cynthia will also be back on Saturday to see your progress and discuss ways to better store your scraps so you continue to use them long after you leave the retreat.

There will also be time to work on other projects if you want a break from your scraps.  Feel free to pack a few WIPs to make some progress on.
