Scrap Therapy

Joan Ford: Quilters can be very frugal. We love fabric! We sew for hours and hours to create beautiful quilts, pillows, baby blankets and more. And we save the pieces that are left after the project is complete. In random clumps and sizes to be used later...
In bags, boxes, drawers, closets and car's everywhere!
And we feel guilty as the scrap fabric stash grows. "Some day, I'm going to make a scrappy quilt with all this," you say. But where to begin. The task seems daunting.
Perhaps you need a plan. Perhaps you need Scrap Therapy!

The Cutting Edge tool is great! You put it on the underside of the ruler to mark where you want to cut, and butt the edge of the fabric against it! One of those "why didn't I think of that?!" kinds of tools.
