With these charming patterns you can embellish quilts, pillowcases, hanger covers, aprons and more and bring adorable accents into your home.

In this innovative book, Ford offers step-by-step instructions for cutting a fabric stash down to size -- quite literally -- and provides 20 original patterns for quilts, pillows, table runners, and more.
