Every quilter knows that leftover pieces of fabric are inevitable.
While some people throw these scraps away, others are quite conscientious and look to make something from their scraps.
However, scrap quilting is not a new concept.
Looking back to the Victorian age, we find that the production of crazy quilts by upper-class women was a way for them to show off their wealth and knowledge of stitching.
The fabrics used were often brocades, silks, and chintz.
