Brown Crumbs Brown Crumbs
By: Elizabeth Kelbaugh, South Carolina, USA

I love to work with crumbs of fabric. I was inspired by Bonnie Hunter’s work with crumbs and a quilt of Joy Saville’s. I sorted my crumbs ( I save anything larger than 1″) and started free piecing.

Crazy Quilt, Of Course (A Bit Dotty) Crazy Quilt, Of Course (A Bit Dotty)
By: Sandra Starley, Utah, USA

I took a ‘crazy quilt’ challenge literally using about 125 different fabrics, a bit of my black & white collection. Victorian stitching took over and I had a blast trying out fancy stitches and finishing with a stitched swag border to complete the design. Paperpieced and machine embroidered. Enjoy

Dream Catcher Dream Catcher
By: Pat Ferguson, Utah, USA

During December of last year, I challenged myself to make a 7.5″ block daily for this quilt. I had made several quilts from many of these fabrics and was growing tired of them. This quilt used up the main portion of my scraps from these Moda fabrics and some others I had that blended with this.

Everything from Black to White Everything from Black to White
By: CathyW, United Kingdom

My nephew Tom (age 19) asked for an abstract quilt in “Everything from Black to White and all the colours in between”. I used left overs from 6 other quilts, and a few bright fat quarters that jumped out of my stash. His sister says he will love it, but it’s waiting for his birthday in November!

Higher Hope Higher Hope
By: Debbie, South Carolina, USA

This is a very easy, scrappy braid that uses lots of different values of fabric to get the blending effect. Each braid run is banded with black strips so that they seem to float across the quilt. A great stash buster.

Joey's Quilt Joey’s Quilt
By: k3n, United Kingdom

I had to sort my scraps, the tubs wouldn’t close! I cut lots of 2 1/2″ squares then pieced 4 patches and it became this! I’m not good at scrappy – too much of a control freak, so was pleased that it began to fall into groups of colours. I added the red/ cream HSTs for unity. My son, Joey’s quilt.

Simply Glowing Simply Glowing
By: Jayardi, Wisconsin, USA

I love a controlled scrappy. When I decided to go green, I had to enlist the help of my friends to acquire the 300+ fabrics. Then it took 2 months to put them in value order. The border is raw edge, fussy cut leaves and FM echo swirls to mimic leaves blowing in the wind done on my Sapphire 830.

Sushi Sushi
By: StitchinRN, Arizona, USA

I made a round table topper and used a 10degree wedge ruler. So what was left was a lot of fabric and a lot of strips cut into odd wedge shapes and lengths. So I made this wall hanging. I called it Sushi, because to me it means ‘all mixed up’. I left the angles and the widths to add character.
