- Make fourteen pieced and appliqued quilts in a variety of sizes and color palette.
- Use up your fabric stash with patterns specifically designed for strips, squares, fat quarters and leftover scraps
- sidebars and notes from sewing and craft expert Nancy Zieman sprinkled throughout the pages offer more expert advice.
Learn to put your fabric stash to good use in both classic and new designs, while still having fun hunting for that eye-popping splash fabric that will turn up the Wow factor on your quilt
Fourteen quilt designs, each with variations, plus a quilted purse design, help quilters like you use their stash fabric collection! All of the designs utilize timesaving techniques such as rotary cutting, assembly line piecing, and quick shape cutting with specialty rulers. And none of the quilts include cutting 1/8" measurements because the author shows you how to eliminate those for good! Old favorites, as well as new quilt designs, are presented to showcase a quilter's stash fabric. The borders, and occasionally the background fabrics, are the added splash to complement the quilt. The chapters in this book are organized in the ways that quilters organize their stash fabrics: in fat quarters, scraps, strips and leftover pieces.
