In this video Linda explains how she uses many different colours of fabric scraps to create a simple pieced top and then works with embroidery stitches to add texture and visual impact. She explains her choice of thread colour and type and demonstrates how she uses basic fly stitch instead of a conventional quilting stitch to add a new dimension to the quilted surface. The top is machine pieced and the quilting is worked by hand. This idea can be scaled up or down to become a perfect project for all those scraps you’ve been hoarding!
