Even your ancient scraps will ❤ you for trying this technique (+ giveaway!)

Grab your bits, pieces, strings, strips, and chunks:

(Yes, even the ones that look like this—you’ve got them too, right?):

Slice and dice them into smaller scraps:

Sew them back together this way and that:

Keep sewing, keep going!

And before you know it, your bits and pieces begin to turn into something magical, right before your eyes:


I
never thought I’d use some of these fabrics again, but even those scraps I saved from my first year as a quilter—1997—are looking good!

Keep patch-working your way to the size you want (blocks, panels, or strips):

Square up the edges, and you’ve created a whole new fabric that holds all your scrappy memories.


I’d never done anything like this before, and I had a great time sewing the Stash Statement way—it was inspiring, liberating, a little crazy, and a LOT of fun. And today we’re thrilled to kick off Kelly Young’s blog tour for her new book, Stash Statement!

Stash Statement

With Kelly’s improvisational technique, there’s no such thing as a miscut. You can skip perfect ¼" seams. No need for perfect points. Start with a single color, and then progress to using multicolored scraps in Kelly’s quilts—she provides you with a plan. You get to simply play!

Use any fabric you have on hand—everything works and anything goes. These scrap-packed quilts will give a happy home to every piece of fabric you’ve ever saved.

You’ll find my finished quilt below, but first, meet Kelly Young and get to know more about her stash-busting book!


Kelly YoungI’ve loved quilts for as long as I can remember, and I’ve always marveled that quilting is the perfect blend of order and creativity.  Of course, making them means that I also get to pet all of the pretty fabric. And let’s face it—what quilter doesn’t love that?

As any quilter knows, making quilts means making scraps, and figuring out how to use them can be fun but also daunting. My new book, Stash Statement, is all about structured improvisation: using your scraps with a consistent background fabric. You’ll learn to sew your quilt scraps with three easy improvisational methods, and then use those scrappy pieces within the comfort of 12 quilt patterns. It’s a perfect balance of play and predictability, and the texture created in the resulting quilts makes a big statement.

To help you get the hang of improv piecing, the first four quilts in the book are all about color play and are great whether your scraps are full of bright colors or more muted tones.

Precarious and Beach Retreat

Once you’re familiar with the process, you’ll be ready for the quilts in the next section, which mix scraps into a free-for-all of color! These quilts show a variety of fresh styles, and you’ll have fun choosing the perfect background fabric for your scrappy masterpiece.

Fire Pit and Detour

The last four quilts in the book use improv units in the background with solid blocks, creating lots of depth and interest—almost like an impressionist painting!

Bloom Chicka Boom and College Prep

Structured improvisation is fun for novice and experienced quilters alike. Best of all, since there is no need to cut scraps into uniform sizes, it creates very little waste. I hope you’ll use your scraps with the patterns in the book to make your own stash statement!

We’re kicking off the Stash Statement blog tour today. Visit my blog at myquiltinfatuation.com for a full list of bloggers, and for a chance to win a copy for yourself. Happy scrapping!

    —Nancy on April 16, 2018
  • Yes, I’ve sewn bits together to form a large piece of ‘fabric’ to cut out an applique shape. It is fun. I have done small blocks for the centers of 9 patches also.

    Gail on April 16, 2018
  • I’m in the middle. I’ve dabbled on just one quilt and finished it, but I was very uncomfortable with the procedure and am not sure I like the finished product. I need confidence. Stash Statement certainly imparts it.

    —Jean on April 16, 2018
  • This looks like a lot of fun. I did try this on a set of pillows. Loved the look

  • I believe my stash is in need of some improv.

    —Ann West on April 16, 2018
  • I’m kind of neurotic, so I’ve never tried it before. I have TONS of scraps, including some really, really old FQ’s that I bought when I lived in Michigan (pre-1983!!!) so I really need to do something. Would love this book, as it would help me tame the scrap monster

    —Geri on April 16, 2018
  • I have never tried this idea, but I LOVE it! I always have a pile of scraps.

    —Janet on April 16, 2018

    —kathy on April 16, 2018
  • I save all those little bits and pieces! Stash Statement is the perfect inspiration to whittle down my collection of lovely scraps!

    —Betsy on April 16, 2018
  • I have not done much in the way of improv. I have been itching to do some string piecing though. I follow Kelly’s blog posts and recognized the pattern design right off but did not know she was bursting the improv wide open. I love these designs of hers. I can’t wait to make College Prep!

    —Loris Mills on April 16, 2018
  • My stash needs some improv!! This looks like fun 🙂

    —Rose on April 16, 2018
  • I haven’t tried this yet. I have a hard time doing "random" quilting. I love the look of this, and should go outside my box and try it! The results are beautiful and all those crazy, left-over pieces of fabric I have would be made into something so creative!

    —Patty on April 16, 2018
  • I’ve tried it, but it seems too busy for me. I have so many scraps that I’m willing to try it again.

    Meloney on April 16, 2018
  • I just finished cutting 150 5 inch squares from about 30 fabrics so am ready to use the scraps to make one of the quilts in this book! Can’t wait!

    Whoo-hoo Judi! You are going to have so much fun – and your idea is a great way to start one of Kelly’s projects! Have fun! –Jenny

    —Judi Rizzo on April 16, 2018

    —Kay on April 16, 2018
  • Haven’t tried it…yet!

    —Cathy on April 16, 2018

    —Karen H on April 16, 2018
  • Never tried it, but it is something I have always wanted to do!

    —Helen on April 16, 2018

    —Margaret on April 16, 2018
  • I’ve dabbled, but I haven’t finished an improv quilt yet.
    Thanks for this post. Inspiring!
    I’ve often wondered if fabric companies or ones that make quilts for display have ever considered a scrap giveaway–you know, like with those corner triangles that get cut off. Maybe you could publish a book about how to use those up.

    Interesting idea, Marcia! –Jenny

    —Marcia P. on April 16, 2018
  • Not yet, but it looks like a good way to use up scraps.

    —Mami B on April 16, 2018

    —Terri on April 16, 2018
  • What great ideas for scraps. I have boxes full waiting for the right ideas.

    —Ginny on April 16, 2018

  • Yes, I’m a stash improv addict! Love everything about it!

    —Kathy E. on April 16, 2018

    —Lois on April 16, 2018
  • I have tried small projects like this before- using every last scrap of what I used in a quilt. It’s fun to use every last bit! I have a ridiculous amount of scraps so this book may be just what I need!

    —Teresa Dyer on April 16, 2018
  • Never done this before but I am ready to give it a try.

    —DebrafromMD on April 16, 2018
  • I’ve never tried to use my scraps, although I have them in different containers (2 1/2” strips; small pieces; and then large pieces. My containers are getting quite full, so I need to find something to use them in. They are all too pretty to just be ignored.

    —Karen White on April 16, 2018
  • I’ve done this numerous times and love both the process and outcome!

    —Judy graczyk on April 16, 2018
  • I really want to try this–I have boxes and boxes of scraps to play with!

    —Janet Wiener on April 16, 2018
  • I have tried it because I just can’t throw away any bits of material but never to the extent in the book. I would love to be more confident and get more of my scraps used up.

    —Barb Darnell on April 16, 2018
  • I have made a couple very small accent (wall) quilts, but I should really do this again and use my scraps that have been languishing in a box for way too long!

    —Darlene B on April 16, 2018
  • Yes, I love making quilts from leftover scraps! So much fun!

    —Glenda Britten on April 16, 2018

    Linda Cwiklak on April 16, 2018

    —Rose on April 16, 2018
  • I’ve not tried Improv yet but for sure could use a way of busting my leftovers. I love a copy of the book in order to see what I can do about using up some of my leftovers and other folk’s leftovers that they have sent my way to make charity quilts. Looks promising!

    —Eilene H on April 16, 2018
  • Addict! I love love love using scraps to ‘make fabric’ would love to have the book for ideas!

    —Janice on April 16, 2018

  • I save all my bits and pieces so this is a wonderful way to turn them into striking quilts. I would LOVE this book and so would all of my “scrap stashes”.

    —Freda on April 16, 2018
  • I’ve started putting scrappy blues together and this book gives me some great ideas on where to go from there.

    CJ Hines on April 16, 2018
  • I have tried it a little bit but not to this extent – would love the book

    Nann on April 16, 2018
  • I’ve done some of this kind of piecing. Certainly have the scraps for more!

    —Nyla-Jean on April 16, 2018
  • The only improv piecing that I’ve done is to make crazy quilt blocks. I have been trying to decide what to do with said blocks. I think I found my answer – add on to them and keep going!

    Barbara Johnson on April 16, 2018
  • I’ve dabbled, but I haven’t finished an improv quilt yet. I have things started but have yet to fiqure out what to do with them. Will keep on working on them though. Thanks for the giveaway.

    —Rita S on April 16, 2018
  • I’ve done a little bit, spent the weekend sorting my scraps (crumbs?) and finding other inspiration for their use. I sorted by color, and one bin of lights and darks, so lots of what she’s done here would work for me… the idea of zen sewing pieces together is enticing as well! Love the table runner Jenny did… I have a new granddaughter we’re making quilts for, methinks she needs a runner from all the quilt scraps for her dresser!

    —Sharon Schipper on April 16, 2018
  • I’ve never tried it. I would love to win this book. I have soooo many scraps. What a wonderful way to use them up.

    —Emily on April 16, 2018
  • I have made only one Improv block so far. This book looks like I could learn a lot. Thank you!

    Danette Stankovich on April 16, 2018

    —Jane on April 16, 2018
  • I am between an addict and a dabbler, but have finished one or two improv quilts.

    —Lucy Harville on April 16, 2018
  • Yes, I’ve dabbled but not much. I have enough scraps to make an improv quilt big enough to cover my county! I need this book!

    —Ruth on April 16, 2018

    —Lynette on April 16, 2018
  • I’m a modern quilter and I love Improv! Most of my pieces are pillows, table toppers or wall hangings. I’ve given my daughter something to coordinate with quilts I made for her. I also just like to play with fabric without having to think too much and then turn my playing into something usable. This book has great ideas for larger projects.

    —Dawn Spero on April 16, 2018
  • My stash is oh so ready. Awesome approach to dealing with your stash. this would make a fun guild challenge.

    —Minnette on April 16, 2018

    —Kathy G on April 16, 2018
  • I have never tried this method before, but I have multiple piles of scraps from 30 years of quilting. I think it’s time to try this!

    —Eileen on April 16, 2018
  • I’ve dabbled a bit. Not being able to discard the tiniest bit of fabric, I need to take the plunge and sew away.

    —Dianne on April 16, 2018
  • I haven’t tried it yet but I certainly have a big enough scrap stash to complete a quilt!

    —Carol Gearey on April 16, 2018
  • As a 24/7 caregiver for my husband several years ago, I started sewing my crumbs together as ‘therapy’, sometimes at 2 a.m. It is a soothing, no decisions, meditative process. Have boxes of ‘crumb yardage’, kind of addicting.

    —Shirley on April 16, 2018
  • Call me a dabbler. Love making string quilts, but this improv idea is so exciting.

    —SharonK on April 16, 2018
  • Boy, do I ever have the scraps ready for these quilts.

    —Karen in Texas on April 16, 2018

    —MJ Modjeski on April 16, 2018
  • Love the idea and her process! I’ve done lots of scrappy quilts, but never this way. I’m going to try it.

    —Mary Beth McKelvey on April 16, 2018
  • Yes I have tried Improv, it’s fun

    —Hilda Krebs on April 16, 2018
  • I just finished a baby quilt yesterday. It is a charity quilt. I was given some fabric by my guild and I added lots of my scraps and made a very fun improv pieced quilt for a new baby at our local hospital.
    So fun and easy.
    I would love to win a copy of this book to make even bigger scrap quilts look sensational.

    —Ginny Leber on April 16, 2018
  • Haven’t tried it yet, but looks like great fun!

    —Jean R on April 16, 2018
  • I have not tried this, but I feel "buried" under all the scraps I have – that I just can’t bear to throw out. This seems like a wonderful way to use them up and feel good about making such beautiful quilts in the bargain!

    —Kathy L on April 16, 2018
  • Yes, I took a class that our guild speaker gave a few years ago. Turned it into a quilt that I gave one of my daughters for Christmas the following year. She keeps it on her couch and her dog loves it as much as she does! I love doing scrap projects!

    —Carla Ferrier on April 16, 2018

    —Suzanne on April 16, 2018
  • I have always loved Kelly’s style and color sense. As for improv piecing, I’ve played around a little but haven’t completed a full quilt that I’d call true improv.

    Anne Deister on April 16, 2018
  • No yet, but my stash is ready for a bit of improv ! I love "Precarious", I want to try this technique.
    Thank you for the giveaway…

    —Gloria on April 16, 2018
  • Improv is fun, I need to do more. This looks like a great book!

    —Janna on April 16, 2018
  • No, I do not believe I have tried this type of quilting before. It sure does look like a lot of fun to create a variety of blocks and shapes with to turn into a glorious Scrap Quilt. I look forward to seeing what other quilters have created with this great new Scrap Book. Thank You for the opportunity to win an amazing prize!

  • I’ve tried it too but haven’t finished a quilt yet.

    —Pam Gantz on April 16, 2018
  • Haven’t tried it, but could definitely use some improv in my piecing. This book looks like it would be a good source to produce happy quilts!

    —Annette F. on April 16, 2018
  • I have done a few of these as wall hangings. It is a great way to burn through all those scraps and make something unique.

    —darlene rich on April 16, 2018
  • I’ve made a few blocks improv style but would like to explore further.

    —Doris Miller on April 16, 2018
  • I have made my own scrap yardage and am always looking for ways to use it in a planned layout. Can’t wait to read through this book! Congratulations to Kelly on a great concept.

    —Christine on April 16, 2018
  • I love this technique and do need to tackle my stash. Have done this with just batiks and it come out amazing.

    —Penny Morgan on April 16, 2018
  • I’ve just barely dabbled.

    —Dixie on April 16, 2018
  • I haven’t tried this yet, but it looks like just the ticket for my overflowing collection of scraps! I love these quilts.

    —Laurel Marsolais on April 16, 2018
  • I have a whole bucket full of scraps that has just been waiting for this idea. Have done a few small scrappy projects but never thought of trying a whole quilt, can’t wait to try.

    —Pat Brich on April 16, 2018
  • I have dabbled in improv, several times. I have a friend who was sewing these in the early 2000s, called them trash blocks. She has made several quilts this way. Nice to see a book on it!

    —Becky Ray on April 16, 2018
  • Not yet but the scrap box I’d hetting full, now is the time to get it done.

    —Linda Brennan on April 16, 2018
  • I have made string quilts with my scraps but I have not tried improv piecing. It looks interesting, so I think I will.
    Thanks

    —Debbie Sheldon on April 16, 2018
  • My stash is ready for a bit of improv! I haven’t tried improvisational piecing yet but what a great idea!

    —Linda B on April 16, 2018
  • I save every little scrap and make these kinds of quilts. With a little background fabric you can make a whole quilt from nothing. My family loves them because they like to find the fabrics that are in their quilts. I would love to win the book so I can have other ideas. I can make a queen size quilt and not even make a dent in the scraps. Great book. 🙂

    —Kay Menefee on April 16, 2018
  • Yes! I have started my own stash statement quilt! I have several 12″ blocks ready for making into a quilt!

  • Not yet, but I’ve been building my scrap stash and I am looking forward to making my first "leftovers" quilt and this improv technique looks right up my alley!

    —Jade on April 16, 2018
  • Wow! This is pure genius! I am even encouraged to try scrapping. Before reading this, the project to scrap was too overwhelming. But after reading this, I am ready to give it a try. Hope I win the giveaway.

    —Martha Cook on April 16, 2018
  • I’ve dabbled. And NEED to do a lot more than dabble.

    —Deborah B. on April 16, 2018

    —Tess McCarthy on April 16, 2018

    —Jamie Graham on April 16, 2018
  • Have not tried yet, but excited to make something.

    —Cheryl Wilker Aloise on April 16, 2018

    —Caryn on April 16, 2018
  • Have done some wonky blocks – sewing strips onto a white square, diagonally, then trimming to size of white square. Leave half of the square white. It’s really fun! It seems odd to be able to create something out of – literally – scraps!!!!!!!

    —Marianne on April 16, 2018
  • Perfect timing!! I’m FINALLY organizing my scraps that I’ve accumulated over the last ……wait for it…11 years!! So this book is exactly what I need….thanks for the inspiration:)

    —Connie on April 16, 2018
  • I’ve dabbled with two, and have slabs ready for another. And have tubs of scraps dying to be put into a quilt…

    —Amy L on April 16, 2018
  • This would be so much fun to use up some of my 3 bins of fabric.

    —Betty Sylvia on April 16, 2018
  • I have not yet tried it, but my scraps are ready and waiting!

    —Lin H on April 16, 2018

    —Marge Barlow on April 16, 2018
  • My stash is really ready for some improv. This looks like a very freeing and fun way to use up lots of scraps!

    —Susan Griffith on April 16, 2018
  • I did this when I was a teenager – I just sewed a bunch of scraps together over and over, long before I knew anything about quilting, just to entertain myself. These are wonderful!

    —Diana Steverson on April 16, 2018
  • I’ve dabbled, but I haven’t finished an improv quilt yet.

    —Sally on April 16, 2018

  • Hi,Not yet, but my stash is ready for a bit of improv!Thank You!

    —LINDA on April 16, 2018
  • I keep scraps because they remind me of the quilts I have made. So far I have experimented with a few squares of strips and or crumbs. Next project will be organizing by color and cutting usable shapes…

    —Kathleen Garrison on April 16, 2018
  • I have done some wonky improv and some curvy improv. Both quilts are completed. This is different. More techniques to try.

    —RoseMarie Christie on April 16, 2018
  • what a wonderful book love the use of scraps in a new and different way.

    —Theresa Taylor on April 16, 2018

    —Jane S on April 16, 2018
  • I have done some improv but the final result was usually nothing to even show to others.

    But this book is the answer, thanks for writing it.

    —Hedda on April 16, 2018
  • Not yet, but my stash is ready for a bit of improv! I have many years of quilting scraps. This looks like a fun way to use some of them. Love the idea of improv piecing.

    —Kay on April 16, 2018
  • Now THIS is the book I have been waiting for! What a fabulous way to use up scraps, even the really small pieces. I would really love to try these quilt patterns with my stash of scraps. I want to win this book, please.

    —Sara Byman on April 16, 2018
  • Wow that looks like something I would love to have going all the time. I did make a doll quilt with my granddaughter using this method. Thanks for the chance

    —Jearit Grennan on April 16, 2018
  • I have done some ‘improv’ piecing and made boxes from quilted squares of same colour family so I could keep my fabric scraps sorted. It was fun and gave me a perfect opportunity to practice free motion quilting on my quilted squares (which were then made into boxes).

    —Gloria on April 16, 2018
  • I’ve never tried improv piecing, but this looks like fun!

    —Kathy Retherford on April 16, 2018

    —Joan Hanson on April 16, 2018
  • I’m a total improv addict!! I save all scraps of all sizes and have made several scrappy quilts. My favourite to make was a Raggy edge Ticker Tape lap quilt. I went into my stash and cut scraps so I could increase the variety in it!

    —Susan Burney on April 16, 2018
  • My stash is definitely ready for this. My bins are overflowing!

    —Patty on April 16, 2018

    —Grams on April 16, 2018
  • I would not say I am an addict to scrap piecing; I am a scrap saver, which will probably turn into a scrap piecing addict with this book! Yes, I need help on getting my scrap piles under control and this book looks like the answer!

    —Marilynn on April 16, 2018
  • I admit I am an addict. I really love scrap quilts and the scraps and crumbs from prior projects live on into lovely improve scrappy quilts.

    —Stephanie L. on April 16, 2018
  • My stash is ready! Been ‘window shopping’ various improv ideas but haven’t taken the leap yet. This collection looks truly inspirational. Ready to jump!

    Love this and can’t wait to try this out.

    —Kathleen McQuiggin on April 16, 2018
  • It’s been a while but I remember trying this process, but at the time it didn’t catch my interest. I might try again.

    —Jan on April 16, 2018
  • Not yet, but my stash could use a lot of improv! I mostly do scrappy and have gotten a bit of an out of control stash!

    —Bev Gunn on April 16, 2018
  • Many years ago, I thought I’d use up all my scraps in a crazy pieced quilt (before we called it improvisational). I started with a laundry basket of scraps, finished with a basket and a half full, and a twin size quilt. I believe that exposing scraps to air causes them to breed! Obviously I need a better method and this book may be it!

    —Brenda on April 16, 2018
  • I have tried a few scrap buster quilts. It’s very rewarding to create something made entirely from your stash. I look forward to trying some of your "step outside of your box" designs.

    —Linda Michaelson on April 16, 2018
  • Not yet but my stash is ready for a bit if improv. Awesome

    —Tamara Gassen on April 16, 2018

  • Haven’t tried yet, but it’s on my list!

    —Mindy on April 16, 2018
  • Yes, I have tried improve piecing. I really like it because it’s relaxing & uses up scraps. I did improv piecing for the background in quilt for a gift. One of my current projects will be completely improve piecing. I adding scraps from other projects as I go along. The book giveaway has some great ideas! Thanks!

    —Pam on April 16, 2018
  • It would be a fun way to make new fabric and down-size my scraps! Looks wonderful. I haven’t tried it yet, but would love to.

    —Susan Stanton on April 16, 2018

  • I NEED to dabble! 🙂

    Janice Holton on April 16, 2018
  • Scrap piecing is quite addictive. The "blocks" just keep growing, and you’re always left with more bits to sew together – which keep growing again too!
    Would love some more innovative ways of using these up besides having to "square up blocks" that just don’t "square up"!! 🙂 🙂

    —Barb Reynolds on April 16, 2018

    —Sherry Jurykovsky on April 16, 2018
  • No, I have not tried as yet, but after seeing the quilt from Freemotion by the River, I want to try it! What a great idea! I already have my stash separated by color. That is half the battle right there! I’m ready to roll….

    —Janet T on April 16, 2018
  • We’ve used this method for years to make charity quilts at a very reasonable cost. Our group has always called it Mile-A-Minute. However, we used much simpler and more traditional patterns. I am definitely interested in this book.

    —Sandy May on April 16, 2018
  • I would love to try a scrap quilt using this technique.

    —Barbara Alama on April 16, 2018
  • My improv history goes back to before they named it – 20 years. The first ones were using blocks from a Billie Lauder techniques class with improv fillers. Then a couple of completely improv quilts stacked into columns.

    Karen on April 16, 2018
  • I have on dabbled with 1 1/2 stips, trying to do sort of a lego quilt. This sounds more unstructured and fun.

  • Not yet, but my stash is ready for a bit of improv!

    Diane Cullum on April 16, 2018
  • I haven’t tried improvisational piecing but only because I am uncomfortable with the free, non-structured concept. But, I love the look of patchwork and wish I had the courage to let go of my ‘must line up’ mind set. I think this would be the perfect book to step out of my comfort zone.

    —Lynn Darcy on April 16, 2018
  • I have never tried improvisational piecing but it looks like fun. I have a friend who had done some and I like how it turned out. I guess I will have to give it a try!

  • I’ve dabbled but haven’t completes an improv quilt yet. Stash Statement looks full of good ideas.

    —Janice Snell on April 16, 2018
  • I have tons of scraps, many already cut into useable pieces. These would be great projects to get started on a project as I have never really used scraps in the way the book suggests. I would love to try this free-form method so I could see progress instead of thinking about it so much! Can’t wait to try it!

    —Jeanne on April 16, 2018

  • I didn’t realize these beautiful quilts were so scrappy. I don’t care for the "crumb" blocks, but I’d dig through my plentiful scraps to give these a try.

    —EllenB on April 16, 2018
  • I’ve dabbled, but haven’t made anything yet.

    —Jane Larke on April 16, 2018

    —Mona on April 16, 2018

    —Lisa Garrett on April 16, 2018

    —Laura C on April 16, 2018

    —Perri Ann Kaufman on April 16, 2018
  • I just started something like this last month, but not yet finished – still adding scraps as I find the time to work on it.

    —Nancy on April 16, 2018
  • I have done some string quilts but this looks way more fun, would love to win the book for some expert guidance.
    Love your work

    —Angela Clarke on April 16, 2018
  • I’ve worked on an improv block or two, but not a whole quilt yet. Cool book. Beautiful quilts! Have a wonderful day! angielovesgary2 atgmail dotcom

    —Angela J Short on April 16, 2018
  • I have not tried Improv Piecing yet, but it looks like fun and the resulting Grand Bazaar quilt is great! I’d love to read through the Stash Statement book and try the technique myself! Thanks for the giveaway opportunity.

    —Kathleen Dalecio on April 16, 2018
  • I like to make the backs of my quilts from scraps. Sometimes I use used dryer sheets as a foundation so that the "blocks" are all the same size and sashing in-between.

    —Lisa on April 16, 2018
  • Not yet, but my stash is ready for a improve!!! Love this way to quilt!!!!

    —Dale (Dee) Sims on April 16, 2018

    —Terri J on April 16, 2018
  • I’ve never tried piecing like this, but what a “forehead slapping” moment! I’ve got to try this!,,

    —Robin on April 16, 2018
  • Not yet, but I took out my scraps and sliced and diced today. Finally these are gonna get some good use!!😀

    —Paula on April 16, 2018
  • OMG! I love these quilts. I have bins of scraps sorted by color. I would love to try Detour first. I have done some of Gwen Martson’s baskets which are on the same idea.

    —Ellen on April 16, 2018
  • too chicken to try anything improv. I can’t think out of the box. Even when I follow a pattern I like, it’s usually in the same colors that the pattern used as I can’t picture it any other way. Help me loosen up!

    —Roz Agulnik on April 16, 2018
  • No, I have not but it looks very interesting. Would love to win.

    —Sheila Bales on April 16, 2018
  • My stash is ready for improv! Several people in one of my small groups uses this technique for charity quilts and they are always stunning. I’m ready to try and love the idea of more ways to put the improv elements to use!

    —Roberta A Pabst on April 16, 2018

    —Carol Schon on April 16, 2018
  • I’ve been wanting to try this and my stash is definitely in need of some improv!

    —Terry Coleman on April 16, 2018
  • This is fabulous ! I am so bored with the way I have always used up my crumbs !!! Can’t wait to try something new… thanks !

    —Kate on April 16, 2018
  • Oh man, I just had to throw out some scraps! Wish I’d seen this first, it looks fascinating. I’ve never done much with scraps which is why I decided to get rid of some, but this looks fun.

    —Laura B on April 16, 2018
  • I have not yet tried improvisational quilting, but I love the projects in Kelly’s book and would definitely like to try this technique. Thanks for the great giveaway!

    —Bonnie on April 16, 2018
  • I have not quite embraced improv!

    —Lee on April 16, 2018
  • New to improv so my scraps are ready for a try!

    —Ruth Hurst on April 16, 2018
  • I tried improv piecing years ago, making it a skirt on a jumper. I got more compliments on that one dress than all the other garments I made combined! It was fun to do too!

    —Amy C on April 16, 2018
  • I love it. I need to try it, my stash is definitely ready, cool ideas.

    —Tamara Isaacs-Smith on April 16, 2018
  • I love making "crumb quilts" – well, Crumb BLOCKS, actually – I have over 200 waiting to be put together into a quilt. But I haven’t organized mine so well in colour groups. These pictures are lovely! Sewing these crumbs is my therapy! But I need to learn how to put them together!

    —JanG on April 16, 2018
  • I love improv piecing and am currently making loads of crumb blocks. It looks like this book will have lots of great ideas for using them.

    —Heather on April 16, 2018
  • Not yet, but my stash needs busting and this looks very promising

    —Joel Sellers on April 16, 2018
  • Not yet! I really don’t have a great assortment of scraps or more than just a bin-ful. For years, I didn’t save a lot scraps and being military we had to get rid of lots of stuff whenever we moved.

    —Elizabeth Kuntz on April 16, 2018
  • I’ve dabbled a little on some scrappy Christmas ornaments but that’s it.

    —Judith martinez on April 16, 2018
  • I love playing in my scraps! I have one of those old fashion wooden folding clothes dryers. My husband made it taller so I could hang my strips on it. I put warm colors on one side, cool colors on the other and blacks, whites and greys on the top rungs. Plus – I have three bushel baskets of scraps! I have made several quilts with my scraps. This article has given me so o o many more ideas 🤗🤗

    —Edith Scherr on April 16, 2018
  • Not yet, but my stash is ready for a bit of improv!
    This looks like a fun, innovative way to use a chunk of my stash!

    —Kathie Curley on April 16, 2018
  • I’ve dabbled, but I haven’t finished an improv quilt yet. Not sure my stash is large enough for a big quilt yet; maybe a small one!

    —Ann Brassell on April 16, 2018
  • Oh I’m so ready for some IMPROVE, I would like to make quilts to donate and could IMPROVE while finishing some UFO’s

    —ELIZAJANE on April 16, 2018
  • Not yet, but my stash is ready for a bit of improv! Well, maybe my stash is not ready, but I’m definitely ready.

    Joy on April 16, 2018
  • I’ve dabbled in improve cutting & sewing but haven’t completed anything yet. I could sure use this book to figure out how to use all of my scraps. I like the modern look and haven’t quite figured out how to combine scraps to achieve the modern look! I’d love a copy of Stash Statements!

    —Janet Sabol on April 16, 2018
  • WOW What an idea, love it. I continue to save scraps from every and anybody to make strip quilts for charity quilts and now along comes a new idea for me, anyway. I save way to much and I am sure I have scraps from my daughters dresses when they were little. Perhaps my scraps will disappear after this comes to my attention. Thank you and the book would be a wonderful gift.

    —Althea Klosterman on April 16, 2018
  • I just finished my first improv baby quilt and can’t wait to make more.Thankd for the chance at winning this cool book.

    —Wilma on April 16, 2018
  • I just finished a Diamond strip quilt that I used tons of strips of fabric. It turned out beautiful. I will be trying the improv method, since I still have a ton of strips…I can see already. Anxious to get started. I would love to receive the book.. Hope I win.

    —Dorothy Littig on April 16, 2018
  • YES- I am an improv addict! I’ve made a few of these scrappy quits! When I sew all these pieces together I call them my Crumb blocks! Lots of fun to sew these scraps together!

    —Marcia Burt on April 16, 2018
  • I have done at least one- it was fun!

    —Karen on April 16, 2018
  • I love doing this. I learned to quilt from my Grandmother who never wasted an inch of fabric so I follow her lead.

    —Christi on April 16, 2018
  • I’ve never tried it but my stash could certainly use it!

    —Carolyn on April 17, 2018
  • I have dabbled but haven’t finished an improv quilt.

    A. Bouwman on April 17, 2018

  • Yes, I often do improv piecing, I love it!

    —Virpi Tuomivaara on April 17, 2018
  • I love Improve, but it is still difficult to color outside the lines. I will keep working on it.

    —Susan F on April 17, 2018
  • I have done a little improv piecing, but not finished any quilts from it. I certainly have plenty of scraps, and Kelly’s book would be just the inspiration I need!

    —Julie in GA on April 17, 2018

    —MaryJo Mrvichin on April 17, 2018
  • I have not tried improv yet, but it looks like fun. I try to do something new with every quilt.

    —Janet G on April 17, 2018
  • NOT YET but this DEFINITELY got me EXCITED to try it! What a great way to use scraps I’ve been stashing for FOREVER👍🏻👏🏻Thanks for the opportunity to WIN!

    —Tiffanee Noack on April 17, 2018
  • This is exactly what I need! I even joined a scrap challenge for 2018 because I have so many scraps it seems like they are taking over. I recently started 2 scrap quilts and have been making some strip blocks which will be made into a donation quilt.

    Ruth on April 17, 2018
  • I’ve dabbled, but I haven’t finished an improv quilt yet. I saw this book yesterday on her blog and I think it is just the inspiration I need!

    —Jane Charnley on April 17, 2018
  • Not yet but my stash is ready for a bit of improve, especially leftover triangles.

    —Debby T on April 17, 2018
  • WOW!. Just the book and inspiration I’ve been looking for. I’ve been saving my scraps for years but haven’t done anything with them. I love the ideas in this book. As well as everyone else who responded I’d love to have this book. If I don’t win I hope my favorite quilt shop gets it in.

    —Donna on April 17, 2018
  • I have dabbled somewhat with this method but haven’t completed a quilt top as of yet. Maybe I will just place a box of scraps next to my machine and between other projects just start stitching bits and pieces together — its scary to think of what I could create but scrappy quilts are fun and loveable no matter what.

    —Sue F on April 17, 2018
  • I’ve been doing this for years – but nothing this creative. Would love to have this book.

    —Linda Ahn on April 17, 2018
  • That sounds like fun! I have so many odds and ends, would be perfect to sew them together. Would love this book!

    —Cynthia Fedak on April 17, 2018
  • Have I got the stash of scraps for this kind of quilting!?! YES!

    —Julia Stavran on April 17, 2018
  • nope–haven’t tried improv w/ scraps–yet…

    —MS Barb on April 17, 2018
  • I am an improv addict – I have sooooo many scraps, and I can’t let go of them! I use them in the leader/ender method as much as possible, and I really like not having to be precise with seams!

    —Elizabeth Bolton on April 17, 2018
  • My stash is more than ready for a bit of improv, which could hopefully thin it out a bit. It needs to go on a diet!

    —Kathy on April 17, 2018
  • Not yet! But my fabric stash is ready for some improv!!

    —Wronda Lamando on April 17, 2018

    —Barbara Duval on April 17, 2018

    —Edith Gorzo on April 17, 2018
  • Not yet, but I certainly have the scraps to start an improv quilt and can’t wait to get started.

    —Peggy S on April 17, 2018
  • Not yet! But I’ve been collecting pink fabrics to make a scrappy quilt just for me. I have no specific plans for what the quilt will look like, yet. And, I LOVE your statement "Quilting is the perfect blend of order and creativity."

    —Susan Madden on April 17, 2018
  • I’ve dabbled, but have just a smidgen done. I’d love ideas to use it! And I have boxes of scraps to prove it!

    —Pam on April 17, 2018
  • I have tried this kind of piecing but I did not know it had a name. I found a video of a quilter on UTUBE who was demonstrating how she "makes fabric" by doing this! She uses the teeny tiniest of her scrap pieces to do it. She then slices them up into different shapes like larger squares and makes quilts out of them. I have also tried this by starting with a square of muslin and adding one scrap piece at a time to it until it is filled up.

    —Susan P Chinouth on April 17, 2018
  • Not Yet but my stash is ready for a bit of improv

    —PatS on April 17, 2018

    —Karin E. on April 17, 2018
  • My stash just keeps growing so should try something like this to weed out some of it. Looks like a fun book with many ideas and can hardly wait to try some of them

    —Audrey on April 18, 2018
  • Not yet but my scraps are growing, Would love to clean up some of them, this book looks like the ticket. Love all the ideas of this technique. Thanks

    —Sandie G on April 18, 2018
  • I’m somewhere between Yes, I’m an improv addict! and
    I’ve dabbled, but I haven’t finished an improv quilt yet.
    I’ve made some improv projects but still feel like I have a lot to learn and experiment with.

    —Lisa Marie on April 18, 2018
  • I’ve dabbled, but I haven’t finished an improv quilt yet.
    I have been trying but I don’t seem to get very far. Must work on it more.

    —Beverly on April 18, 2018
  • Not yet, but my stash is definitely ready for improv. What a fantastic idea

    —Kris Valle on April 18, 2018
  • I have done this before to clear out some scraps I didn’t know there was a name for it- would love to have a book to guide me next time.

    —nina on April 18, 2018
  • I have never done improve but I would like to try with my fabric scraps. Hope to win the book

    —beth d. on April 19, 2018
  • Not, yet, but my stash is ready for improv.

    —Judith Campo on April 19, 2018
  • Not yet, but this book seems perfect for knowing how to start

    —Monica Gerhart on April 19, 2018
  • Fabulous inspiration. Have done a crazy panel to border a cushion but ready to think bigger!

    —Judith B on April 20, 2018
  • I would love to try sewing up my scraps this way.

    —Jenny on April 20, 2018
  • YES,I love making this type of quilt, relaxation personified! I’ve made three quilts (for charity) and am looking forward to using the ‘one-colour’ background. What a difference it makes – the colours stand out so well. Yay! How exciting!! The book will bring me another bow to my arrow.

    —Delma Calcagno on April 20, 2018
  • Not yet, but my stash is ready for a little improv!

    —Sheila on April 20, 2018

    —Jodie Banks on April 20, 2018
  • Not yet, but my stash is ready for a bit of improv! This book is just the kick in the pants I need!

    —Blair Cooke on April 20, 2018
  • Boy do I need this book. I have so many scraps of all shapes and sizes that I can’t seem to part with and don’t know what to do with. I’m not very good with scrappy quilts. I tend to like, order. But this technique really appeals to me.

    —Carol Bledsoe on April 20, 2018
  • Not yet, but my stash is ready for a bit of improv!

    —Teresa Knittingdancer on April 20, 2018
  • I have done many rug mugs using that method but never thought of a while quilt. Lovely!

    —Elaine Swatniki on April 20, 2018
  • I am a scrap saver, just can’t part with all those pretty bits and pieces. I’ve dabbled with improv piecing for small projects but have never attempted a whole quilt yet. I currently have 40 blocks that I won in the block Lotto that I am looking for inspiration to assemble into a quilt. Like the looks of this book.

    —Kathleen T on April 20, 2018
  • I have many fabrics of all sizes in my stash and would love to try a quilt like this but I tend to be too organized with my color and fabric choices that even if I start a scrappy quit it turns into an organized one!!

    —Debby Jensen on April 20, 2018
  • Haven’t used this technique yet but my scrap box(es) are calling out to me to be used. This would be perfect.

    —Claire on April 20, 2018
  • Wow—-what a great way to use all those scraps.

    —Marie Beers on April 20, 2018
  • Scrap quilts are my favorite – I love making something useful out of ‘nothing’.

    —Julie A. on April 20, 2018
  • I absolutely love improve piecing. I learned to improv with traditional blocks in a quilt. The imprv blocks make the quilt sing!

    —Cheri B on April 20, 2018
  • So many scraps in my fabric stash — this book would really
    help me. I haven’t tried this technique — yet.

    —Dorothy M on April 20, 2018
  • Need to Improv so my stash and husband tell me

    —LizAnn Lizotte on April 20, 2018

    —Susan MacLeod on April 20, 2018
  • I love improv piecing!

    —Beth T. on April 20, 2018
  • I am getting addicted to crumb quilting. If I have a spare 15 minutes you just sit down with your scraps and create new fabric. Now you can’t throw out the littlest scraps!

    —Christine S on April 20, 2018
  • Not yet, but my stash is getting ready. A friend of mine gave me a small box of little scraps to add to my box. I really want to try this!

    —Michele on April 20, 2018
  • Oh, my! I have so many scraps, NOW I am interested in improv quilts to clear some of them out! Thanks for this post and inspiration, and the give-away.

    —Glenna D. on April 20, 2018

  • Love the ideas in this book. I have done some improve sewing and loved every piece I have done. This book talks to me. Thank you Kelly for writing this one.

    —Susan on April 20, 2018
  • Yes, I love making improvisational quilts…and always on the lookout for new ideas to inspire my work. This book has beautiful fresh quilts that I think I would look at and use as inspiration for many more quilts to come. I have loads of scraps as I make many very structured, formal quilts most of the time until I can’t stand it any longer and let loose and go wild with the scraps… therapy, if you will! It is all about finding balance, lol!

    —Jaqualine on April 20, 2018
  • Not yet but I have tons of scraps and would love to make a quilt using this method – thank you for the opportunity to win this book!

    —Carole on April 20, 2018
  • I have seen more and more quilts being done with scraps, I need to get all my scraps out and start putting them together. This book would really inspire me.

    mandy whalen on April 20, 2018
  • I am not one who likes to follow a pattern and piecing like this is so freeing and creative. No directions to follow, no exact cutting pieces required. Just plain freedom. I would love to see how she does it in her book.

    —Mary Ann on April 20, 2018
  • Not yet but I have lots of scraps that would work. Looks like fun.

    —Teri on April 20, 2018
  • I haven’t yet but my stash is definitely ready for me to try!

    —Cathy Wilson on April 20, 2018
  • I have made a few fabric baskets using this technique, and also a dog quilt.
    I like the look of these quilts and know I would enjoy the book.

    —Joye on April 20, 2018
  • Not yet, but my stash is ready for a bit of improv! I have scraps going back to my first quilt in 1996 and once in awhile a piece finds its way into a new work, but I really need to dwindle that growing pile of scraps. This book would give me direction! Thanks.

    —Carolyn Kitterer on April 20, 2018
  • I’ve dabbled but my scraps are overflowing so it would be perfect timing for this book to try again! Thanks for the chance to win.

    —Rebecca Keizer on April 20, 2018
  • Boy, do I need this book! I need to use all my old fabrics and this is perfect!

    —Sarah Barton on April 20, 2018
  • Not yet…almost!

    —Carol Koehn on April 20, 2018
  • I particulary like the idea of using the improv as background…I have used a little improve but at that time, it was called making do…

    —Pal Koenig on April 20, 2018
  • I’ve always been a traditional quilter but it might be time to shake things up a bit and try something new!

    Gayle on April 20, 2018
  • I been doing this for years. I make small table mats to other stuff. I sew all my end cuts together as starter and ending. Then when the project is finished I thrown the strip into a pile or basket for pressing. Been looking for ideas on what to do with the pile. It does help to keep all shades together; like your rainbow strips.

    —Linda Christianson on April 20, 2018
  • Not yet but I love this technique! I’ve got a lot of scraps that are just aching to be used!

    —Carol B on April 20, 2018
  • I have dabbled, but I really love this idea and can’t wait to try it.

    —B. A. Fellers on April 20, 2018
  • Yes, I have played a little bit. More is on the wa.

    —Vicki Allen on April 20, 2018
  • I use this technique instead of a ‘spider’ scrap as a leader/ender when chain piecing. I get ‘crumb’ blocks for charity quilts.

  • I have just started doing this. It is fun piecing all my random scraps. I’ve heard it called Crumb Quilting. Would like to see some ideas on finished quilts.

  • I’ve done one wall hanging and it was hard for me to let go and sew crooked and free style. I started to enjoy it toward the end but it took a while. Loved the final results though.

    —Deb B on April 20, 2018
  • Great idea, wish I had kept more of my scraps.
