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!

For each project, Joan gives quilters lots of options - cutting scraps from yardage or using scraps from their stash; strip piecing squares, cutting squares into strips, or creating squares with interfacing; and fabric variations to change the look of the project. All projects include step-by-step instructions, tips and hints, with how-to illustrations and a photo of the finished project. A quilt making basics section provides all the information plus step-by-step photos to build confidence and ensure success, no matter what the quilting project.

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.
