How to Use Vintage Fabric and Orphan Blocks with Mary Kerr | Learn Ricky Tims Blanket Stitch

(Show 2102) Quilt appraiser and historian Mary Kerr will knock your socks off with her contemporary quilts featuring often overlooked vintage textiles that are usually headed to the scrap heap. With a deep appreciation for those who stitched these orphan blocks, Mary shares tips and tricks for stabilizing and utilizing blocks. Once prepared, the fun of playing with the blocks to create a ‘new’ piece begins. From pillow to wall hanging, the ideas abound.  All this, plus Ricky shares a new rendition of an antique Civil War quilt featuring machine appliqué and an inventive use of the clamshell quilting design. Ricky calls this his ‘fast train to finishville’ method.

Loved this segment with Mary Kerr, and using the man shirt for a back of a pillow. In a raffle, I won vintage blocks, I will try and incorporate her ideals and be brave to repurpose at least a few blocks. Totally getting use to the new website too
