Create Big Quilts For Small Change

Slash Your Stash

Beautiful scrap quilts for almost $0

The quilts below were made almost entirely from the scrap bin by my students, by my eldest daughter, Angela, and by me. Some border fabric was purchased for one or two, but not for the blocks. All from the stash!
