During Kelly’s blog tour for Stash Statement, she asked some of her blogging friends to try the technique for themselves. And boy did they! Here are just a few examples of what people created with their scraps:

Louvered quilt
Primrose Cottage Quilts made a version of Louvered from the book.

Scattered quilt
Twiggy and Opal started with Kelly’s Scattered pattern.

Bloom Chicka Boom quilt
Bloom Chicka Boom became a colorful pillow by made by ChrissieD.

Precarious quilt

made by me!).
