Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Fons and Porter are heads of a quilting empire that includes a television show, a magazine, a quilting-supply company, and a number of books. Their latest, which focuses on scrap quilts, is a collection of patterns previously published in Fons & Porter's Love of Quilting magazine. The patterns range from easy to advanced, and the styles vary from Depression-era retro to modern and geometric. Even if the patterns don't pique your interest, the expert tips included throughout will help save time and effort. Fons and Porter have name recognition among quilters, and this is a quality collection with wide-ranging appeal.
