Book Description

Tiny fabric scraps or 'crumbs' don't have to end up in the bin  now you can learn how to use these crumbs to create 15 beautiful quilts and quilted projects to bust your stash. Author Emily Bailey explains how to make fabric from 'crumbs' which you can then cut to your preferred size and use as a quilt block, a dramatic background fabric or as a piece of appliqué for added texture and interest. These instructions include step-by-step photography for extra clarity for all the quilting techniques you will need to sandwich, baste and build your quilts and projects.

Emily also shares her tips and tricks for how to group fabric colours and prints in order to get the best results. In addition there are also step-by-step instructions for 15 stunning quilted projects including full-size bed quilts and smaller projects including a pillow and pin cushion. Other quilts include Under The Sea  a crumb quilt featuring a whole host of scrappy sea creatures and Night Sky a dramatic quilt which uses crumbs to create a richly textured background with crumb appliqué for the stars and planets.

So why not take another look at your own stash of crumbs and get patchwork and quilting the zero waste way!
