We all have them, and sometimes they overwhelm the sewing studio. We're taking scraps―too good to throw out and awaiting the "someday" they might be used. If you're looking for 16 great scrap-suitable projects, this is your book. There's good info on storing and organizing your bits, how to work with colors and values, using tiny bits and orphan blocks. Look for fun projects using strips, squares, triangles and snippets―from to quilts to small accessory and decor items. (American Quilt Retailer, February 2017)
Amanda Jean Nyberg, who co-authored the popular Sunday Morning Quilts with Cheryl Arkison, has now written her own book of delightful quilt patterns, using something every quilter has plenty of - scraps! (Quilter's Connection, Spring 2017)
Nyberg (coauthor, Sunday Morning Quilts) found herself in a situation that many quilters will find familiar―her scrap bins were overflowing. Her solution? Embrace scrappy quilting and make use of those small pieces! The quilts in this book use scraps ranging from tiny (one inch square) to six inches, in a variety of forms (square, triangle, strip/string, and irregularly shaped snippets). Working with scraps is more of a marathon than a sprint―Nyberg admits that it took her over a year to finish several of the quilts here. The peek into her design process (including some ideas that didn't quite work) is fascinating, and demonstrates that even experienced designers don't always get it right the first time. Helpful hints for organizing, cutting, and working with scraps are included throughout. VERDICT Nyberg's point of view―that no scrap is too small, and that fabric is meant to be used rather than hoarded―will resonate with many, as she brings together patterns of traditional design and contemporary fabric. (Starred Review) (Library Journal, 4/15/2017)
Scraps of all shapes and sizes will find a home in 16 projects from author Amanda Jean Nyberg. Learn to sort and store your fabric leftovers, then use them in small objects like pincushions or showcase them in larger quilts. (Quilts and More, Fall 2017)
If you're someone who saves even the tiniest piece, then this is a book to treasure! The concept of 'waste not want not' has never looked so good with 16 inspiring projects, from full-sized quilts to cards. The author starts by describing her own journey using scraps and then goes on to discuss just how to save and store them. This book is filled with beautiful close-up shots so the projects can be seen clearly and the images of the quilt backs show off how they coordinate with the fronts. Rummage in your scrap stash and see what you can make! (Down Under Quilts, 180)
I don't know about you... But as a sewist I find that I have far too many fabric scraps that I don't know what to do with. No Scrap Left Behind aims to tell you what to do with such things and with ideas from scrap management, color schemes as well as many projects, your scrap bundle will be no more. The projects is this inspiring book use squares, triangles and either large or small from quilts to pin cushions, Amanda Jean Nyberg has some fabulous ideas for everyone. Every level of sewist will benefit from this book and it would make a perfect gift for a newbie. I love it. (tracyshephard.wordpress.com, 7/21/2017)
This is a fabulous book of 16 patchwork projects―sweet, simple but effective―that allow you to use up loads of those small bits and pieces in your stash and scrap bins. There are instructions for 11 bed quilts and five other projects that use even tinier scraps of fabric: a number of pincushions and even some delightful little gift cards. None of the projects requires complete stitching and all of them can be cut using a rotary cutter―no templates needed, no patterns to trace. In addition to excellent project instructions illustrated with diagrams and lots of close-up photos, the book also includes some introductory notes from Amanda Jean about how to most effectively manage and store scraps, how to choose colour schemes for scrap quilts and options for moving forward when you're not happy with the scrap project you're working on. Even those experienced in working with scraps are likely to learn something from her insights. Highly recommended. (Homespun, October 2017)

She starts with "Sorting and Storing" our scraps, and goes from there to "Mixing Materials," "Choosing a Color Scheme," and "Value." And then there is a section on using up all your very small pieces for projects like small purses, pot holders, and hand and foot warmers. The quilt projects themselves are bright, beautiful, and easy to make. My absolute favorite was/is "Slopes" on page 62. I chose that as my starter quilt, and it's still in progress. I'm so happy with it. The colors just shine! Putting it very simply, I advise you to get this book, one way or another. Take a look at it! I think you'll fall in love with it too.
My daughter and I oohed and aahed at every project in this book! Thanks for a great, useful guide for scraps!!
