'In my mind, it makes more sense to start with the scraps, cutting them up following a simple plan. Then you are ready to select and sew the scrap pieces into controlled scrappy projects.'
- Joan Ford, Author
'Joan Ford once again sets out to help you tackle your never-ending stash of leftover fabric. Her approach in this book is to take your scraps and add one inspiration, whether that is one color, a focus fabric or a bright and bold stripe.'
