Kelly DuMaresq - May Speaker

Kelly DuMaresq told us her story of how scrappy quilts have become her passion.  Her trunk show was filled with gorgeous quilts all made from her scrap collection.  She also gave us hints on ways to utilize and store our scrap material.

The hints I liked were:
  • Cut your scraps into 1 1/2", 2", 2 1/2", or 3 1/2"  strips or squares
  • Keep all extra 1/2 triangles
  • Check out www.quiltville.com for Bonnie Hunter info,  free patterns, etc
  • Use squares as leaders and enders.  This way you can sew your squares together as you  work on other projects.
Kelly's presentation was so inspiring....especially for someone who loves scrappy quilts!

It all started with Kelly's grandmother's quilt

This is my favorite
