If you're a prolific sewer, your scraps collection is probably a monstrous, seemingly unmanageable mass of remnants from projects past. You hang on to them just in case, but realistically the collection will just keep growing, with very few of the scraps ever finding a purpose. That is, unless you learn to Quilt With Scraps! This issue includes great projects from Joan Ford's ScrapTherapy program such as:

  • Magic Carpet Table Runner and Quilt
  • Citrus Kitchen Set: Pot Holders and Table Runner
  • Square Peg, Round Hole
  • Chrusciki Tote

Put your old scraps to good use, and create something new and wonderful.

Three lucky commenters will receive a copy of this magazine! Just make sure you leave your comment by February 27th at midnight, EST.

bobbinwinder writes: I make MANY scrap quilts and I'm always looking for new ideas. I never, never throw scraps away. When they get too small to use in a quilt, I use the little bits for stuffing in the pin cushions I make!

krisTJ writes: I used to throw small pieces and slivers away. Then I found that I am more happy and proud when I use something up, basically from nothing, rather than buying expensive new to cut up. I think the challenge of it makes it so worth it.

smfsprout writes: One of the benefits to having a stash of scraps is the fun of deciding what they should be used for. And what quilter hasn't designed 'something' using those perfect little gems. I think this book would be a great asset and help ramp up the fun.

MsRegie writes: Love anything miniature so scraps fit the bill on that! They're also handy for doll clothes and as a base to fill-in large open hole areas on 'real' people's clothes too - place under the hole and zigzag away to make new material! Would love to see more ideas in this magazine!!

It sure makes it easy to get a collection of precut squares. When I am making something and have leftover I just cut them to one of the 3 sizes. I would really put this issue to good use.

Knit1Pearl2 writes: I was organizing my scraps just the other day! I have so many left over from my Jesus quilt I made for my son the other day. He, of course, refused to sleep under it, muttering something about heretics, but if he wants to stay warm in the basement he has no other choice! I also had quite a bit of material left over from my Steve Buscemi tribute pillow case, so that can be used as well! My husband says he hates the pillow, but I've seen him up late at night rhythmically stroking it, eyes glazed over and lips moving, but no sound emanating from them. His joints creak as if a thousand lifetimes have worn the cartilage from between his bones and now they grind together like old gears, never quite fitting together comfortably. His fingers are limp and damp from sweat, a result of some imagined threat that lurks before. His face is contorted in fear, but he has forgotten the words to express it. He knows only what the pillow tells him. He's kooky, but he's mine!
