Overview

All quilters know one thing for sure: a fabric stash is a living thing. It grows imperceptibly at first, but soon takes over your sewing room, and, if you’re not careful, your life. Joan Ford is a quilt designer who recognized a need to clear the clutter among her fellow quilters and came up with a fun and effective way to deal with it. Enter ScrapTherapy™, Ford’s feel-good method for organizing the mounds of fabric — from yards and fat quarters to skinny scraps — and turning them into quilts and a wide array of accessories. In this innovative book, Ford offers step-by-step instructions for cutting a fabric stash down to size — quite literally — and provides 20 original patterns for quilts, pillows, table runners, and more.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Ford, the quilter behind the popular Scrap Therapy workshops, brings to print her system for organizing and using scrap fabric—oddly sized pieces too large for a thrifty quilter to throw away but too small to use in most quilts. After a thorough overview of the system, which involves cutting scrap fabric into squares of three specific sizes, Ford offers a variety of patterns that use the scraps. The directions are thorough enough for beginning quilters, and there's intelligent advice throughout. Whether your stash fits in a shoe box or threatens to take over your home, you'll find this book useful.
