Stash Statement

Don't throw your fabric scraps away!

  • 15 beautiful patterns for structured improvisational quilts to bust your stash

As a quilter, you know you have piles and piles of leftover scraps and strips from quilts you've made, all just waiting for the perfect project to come along.

Inside this book, author Kelly Young teaches you how to make structured improvisational quilts that will use up that stash!

Young starts by blending the old concept of an improv quilt with a newer structured way to do it, plus with tips and techniques on how to get started, how to prepare your fabrics, and how to choose which method you would like to use—panel, strip, or block. Then she offers three ways to organize your quilt: by color, grabbing and sewing, and creating your improv as the background. Projects include Grand Bazaar, Precarious, Detour, Bloom Chicka Boom, Regatta, and more!

Perfect for both confident beginners and experienced quilters, with Stash Statement, you'll turn that pile of fabric scraps into stunning quilts!
