Strip Your Stash

with Nancy Smith
Liberate your stash with this timesaving quilting class! Learn how to sew leftover fabric into strip sets, then make six quilt designs and five other fun projects.

If your stash is growing to epic proportions, strip it down! In this class, you'll learn the fast, easy and thrifty technique of strip piecing. Starting with color matching techniques, you'll work with the fabric you already have in your collection to make small gifts or a beautiful heirloom quilt. With Nancy Smith's help, use every last scrap to make 6 different quilt designs, plus 5 clever projects, including pillows, waterproof snack bags, table linens, notebook covers and more. As you work from fat quarters and yardage down to bits and pieces, nothing will go to waste in this class. Break out all that beautiful fabric you've been saving for a special occasion and put it to use!

Lesson 8. Good to the Last Scrap

"I was expecting this to be more ideas for using jelly rolls and was pleasantly surprised that it wasn't. I got so many wonderful ideas for using up some of my stash by making strip sets of different widths. Also enjoyed the clever ways of using up smaller scraps, especially the snack bags. This class is great for beginners and more experienced quilters."
