Last night I was looking for a quick project to work on. I remembered months ago seeing a photo of a pine burr quilt and the directions. I saved them thinking it would be a good use of scrap squares. Here is a photo from those directions. The Pine Burr quilt has been named the official quilt of Alabama.
I pulled out my scrap bin of 3 ½" squares, cut a muslin foundation and batting. Each square of fabric gets folded twice and pressed into a small triangle ( Prairie Point style ) so it is 4 thicknesses of fabric. I only added 6 rounds and decided to finish a different way. I can NOT imagine a whole block, much less a whole quilt, being made this way even without the batting. There are sooooo many overlapping layers of fabric to sew through. On mine I had also added a piece of heat resistant batting so it would make a protective trivet. I’m pretty sure this will be one of a kind.
