Scrap Transformation

Are you looking at a sewing room full of scraps? No problem! Judy Gauthier is ready to teach you how to transform your scraps into original quilt artistry. 

Starting with color, Judy will take you step-by-step using several different methods on how to use a color wheel to pick your perfect color scheme. Then, using your color-theory-informed scrap collection, start constructing the treasure box block, a quilt block so versatile that you can’t help but revisit it again and again! 

The treasure box block uses fast stacking and cutting techniques that can be transformed into multiple layouts and divisions, making it possible to create a new and fun visual effect each time. One block, a simple cutting technique, and endless possibilities. Join Judy and turn scattered scraps into sensational quilts!

Loved by Quilters and Industry Leaders

Great addition to Creative Spark

In April 2017, Nancy Zieman and I invited Judy to be Nancy’s guest on a two-part Sewing With Nancy television series featuring Judy’s book, Rainbow Quilts for Scrap Lovers. Judy was organized and efficient and presented her projects with enthusiasm along with a practical approach for viewers to easily understand. 


Judy is always courteous, detailed and prompt with each of our many deadlines. In addition to her vast technical quilting knowledge, Judy also exhibits kindness. Our entire team enjoys working with Judy and we look forward to working with her on future projects.


Judy has a genuine interest in both the technical side and the quality of the end product. I feel Judy is a positive and essential member of our industry. I give her my highest level of recommendation without any hesitation.
