What to Do with Quilt Fabric Leftovers

We love our quilt fabric. Each little piece is precious, it feels wrong to call it a “left-over”. In this video we get some ideas about how to organise and use our small pieces of quilting fabric ie how to organise our quilt fabric stash. And hopefully getting organised will lead to a wonder scrappy quilt!

What is scrap quilting ?

Scrap quilting is an economical approach to patchwork for quilters who like to use up every last bit of fabric. While scrap quilting patterns provide a basic framework for quilting with the leftovers from your fabric stash, there are also some basic techniques that allow you to piece together scraps without using a pattern.

Time to get my quilting organised!

Tarnya is Quilting Focus' webmaster and a beginner quilter who hasn’t ventured much outside pre-cuts and quilting in the ditch. She is excited by modern short cut quilting techniques which makes quilting so much more achievable for those who are quite short on time. She enjoys making quilts for her children who she says do not notice mistakes and feel loved by what she makes. "I appreciate how learning and improving my quilting, cross pollinates into other creative areas of my life: for example colour, balance, proportion are important to quilting, but they are also important to web design."
