All quilters know one thing for sure: a fabric stash is a living thing. It grows imperceptibly at first, but soon takes over your sewing room, and, if you're not careful, your life. Joan Ford is a quilt designer who recognized a need to clear the clutter among her fellow quilters and came up with a fun and effective way to deal with it. Enter ScrapTherapy™, Ford's feel-good method for organizing the mounds of fabric — from yards and fat quarters to skinny scraps — and turning them into quilts and a wide array of accessories. In this innovative book, Ford offers step-by-step instructions for cutting a fabric stash down to size — quite literally — and provides 20 original patterns for quilts, pillows, table runners, and more.
Quilt designer Joan Ford is the owner of Hummingbird Highway in Syracuse, New York. As founder of the ScrapTherapy program, she lectures and teaches cutting workshops and quilt classes at guilds and quilt shops around the country. Joan has authored three books, all with Taunton: ScrapTherapy Cut the Scraps, ScrapTherapy Scraps Plus One, and When Bad Things Happen to Good Quilters.
