BOOK: Crumb Quilts
Crumb quilting is the ultimate way to zero waste patchwork using tiny scraps or 'crumbs' of fabric that are so small that most people would throw them away. This collection includes instructions and techniques for how to turn your stash of crumbs into beautiful quilts and quilted projects.
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 applique for added texture and interest. These instructions include step-by-step photography for extra clarity around the techniques.
Emily shows you how to quickly piece together small scraps to create larger pieces of 'crumb fabric' using chain piecing to build up the fabric. All of the instructions are accompanied with step photography so you see exactly how to create your own scrappy fabrics. There are also instructions for all the quilting techniques you will need to sandwich, baste and bind your quilts and projects.
Choose from a full-size bed quilt which features crumb piecing in all its different forms: as a background; as applique and in blocks, to spectacular effect. 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 applique 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!
