Debra is a member of the Orlando MQG, is on Instagram as MadeofHonorQuilts, and blogs at MadeofHonorQuilts, where we've been able to watch her develop the process and methodology for creating improv quilts from leftovers.
|Debra explains the development of her process. Quilts behind her are those she has made or are in progress.|

At the end of the workshop we had a nice wrap-up with discussion about the process, and a review of everyone's work. We may see some pin cushions, or pillows, or quilts from these starts!
We presented Debra with a basket of fat quarters, so she can begin she own Leftovers Quilt #12!
