Quilters and patchworkers all over the world are familiar with Jelly Rolls - bundles of coordinating fabrics manufactured by Moda, pre-cut into useful 21/2in (6.5cm) strips. But what do you do with all those left-over pieces once you've made your patchwork quilt? Instead of assigning them to the waste bin, save them up and you will soon have enough to stitch at least one of the fun projects in this book. Using simple sewing, quilting and patchwork techniques, there are twenty projects to choose from, including stylish cushions, pretty little bags and a handy pincushion, all of which are quick and easy to make. If you don't use Jelly Rolls, any odd scraps of fabric can be used instead - just cut them to size and away you go! All the templates are provided as well as some basic tips and techniques, and each project is accompanied by a list of the materials and tools you need, and clear, step-by-step instructions.
