This is such a great way to use up scraps, that the popularity of this pattern continues to draw quilters in.
One woman approached me and asked how many fat quarters she needed to purchase to make Mumbo Gumbo. I explained that you don't need to buy fabric to make this quilt, and this is a great opportunity to use up all those leftover scraps that don't match.
She is a new quilter without a stash, and very much wants to make Mumbo Gumbo.
I very willingly gave her an entire bin of my scraps. It was quite a relief to know all those fabric strips will now have a good home.
No color planning. No strict quilt rules.
For some of the ladies this was a little difficult and made them work outside their box.
Isn't that what quilt classes are all about? We learn new ways to approach our art.
Mumbo Gumbo is by Pie In The Sky Quilts
One of my students suggested that this would be a great group project to work on for a charity quilt. Give everyone a stash of fabric strips, and have them each make one or two blocks.
I always learn so much from fellow quilters.
