Hi! I’m Kristen.
I am a blogger, Youtuber and quilt pattern designer who is obsessed with quilting and specifically making quilts from other people’s leftover scrap fabric (and my own!).
I tend to like modern-looking, color-coordinated scrap quilts and I have designed my own quilt patterns to reflect this, including a number of Foundation Paper Pieced patterns.
I am originally from Toronto, Canada but I’ve been living in Edinburgh, Scotland for over 20 years and it is now my home.
What you’ll find on Scrap Fabric Love
On Scrap Fabric Love you will find a relaxed ‘scrappy’ can-do attitude to sewing and quilting too.
You won’t find me giving you any ‘quilting rules’ to follow. Instead, I’ll be encouraging you to try new techniques, get creative and make your projects your own way.
Despite the many hours I have put into learning to sew and quilt I like to call myself a ‘confident beginner’ – as in confident enough to try new things and beginner enough to still be amazed at the results you can achieve with just some fabric scraps and a sewing machine! I hope I can help you feel the same!
On this site, you’ll find a mix of:
- Free Quilt Patterns
- Foundation Paper Piecing Tutorials
- Improv Quilting Tutorials
- Scrap Fabric Quilt Blocks
- Sewing Room & Scrap Fabric Organization Tips
- Smaller stash-busting sewing projects
You’ll also find suggestions for organizing your sewing room and scrap fabric and smaller stash-buster projects too.
These are some of the posts my readers tell me they loved the most – I hope you do too!
I’d love it if you would join my subscriber list so I can keep in touch – you’ll get a free Foundation Paper Piecing Pattern for a scrappy heart and I have a tutorial video to show you how to put it together if you are new to foundation paper piecing.
Feel free to get in touch with any questions or to discuss working together at firstname.lastname@example.org
I post a new YouTube video on my channel every Monday and you’ll often find me on TikTok & Instagram as well. Hope to see you there!
My Other Blog
Apart from sewing, I have a real passion for upcycling, which I blog about on another blog called Upcycle My Stuff. Head over and have a look if you are into that sort of thing too!
