Join me for a one-hour complimentary Fabric Savvy session on Sundays when we’ll talk about how I make scrap quilts work. Six weeks of fun!

If you need help with your scraps or you just want to make a quilt with tons of different fabrics, Stash Bandit to the rescue! I’ve been combining unlikely fabrics for 30 years and I’ve learned a lot along with way. I can’t imagine making a quilt with just a handful of fabrics. I don’t want seven, I want 70 or 700. Let me guide you to using the fabric you already own to make dynamite scrap quilts of all kinds!
