Great Designs from 5-Inch Scraps

Discover a sensational system for using your scraps!

It's scrap quiltmaking at its best-stunning traditional patterns, a rainbow of gorgeous colors, and an all- new approach to making scrap quilts that sparkle. Start by cutting 5" squares from your stash fabrics. Once you have your stack of squares, half the work-the cutting-is done!

  • Choose from 20 big, beautiful patterns that each include directions for three different sizes.

  • Use just eight units to make every quilt in the book; then mix and match them into dozens of other creative settings.

  • Have a collection of different-sized squares? Don't worry-alternate sizes are given for 4" and 6" squares, too.

  • Learn trouble-free, fast piecing techniques for making half-square triangles, four-patch units, and more.

Make the most of your stash with this timesaving technique!
