3D Folded Quilt Blocks

 Patterns taken from the
AQS Publication
3D Folded Blocks
by Geesje Baron and Esther Vermeer
 And Pat Grago 
brought her sample

"Scraps Are Us"
on the 3rd Wednesday of every month.
 Pat starts her class
teaching a pineapple block.
The students are then free to create 
their own placement.

"Build As You Go" concept
where you start with a center section of blocks
and then add more blocks around 
the edges as you go.
The reds really make this quilt pop.
And a great way to use up scraps!
