    Great for scraps even though it isn't stated it is for scraps

    Scraps, scraps and more scraps. What to do with all the scraps? Well this book may just help even though it isn't touted as a quilt book for using scraps.

    It begins with the usual eight pages of basic quilting techniques. Throughout the book, there are tips given and set off in colored boxes. Each project shows a full color page of the finished quilt and also tells the finished quilt and block size. The materials list tells how much yardage you need but if you look at the various quilts, you will easily notice that many of them can be done with scraps you have left from other quilts OR those fat quarters you just couldn't resist buying. The quilt named SIDEWAYS is a perfect example of this. And some are perfect with scraps if you pick a background fabric in the required yardage. ELECTRIC FENCE is an example of this. AND best of all, the author even provides a quilt that is specifically for scraps - CRITICAL (STASH) MASS.

    The patterns continue with a cutting list and lots of graphics for following the written instructions. As with most quilting books, the instructions for quilting are listed "as desired". Templates are included and are full sized so no copying needed.

    With 16 quilts, many perfect for scraps, you can use up your bits and pieces and make beautiful quilts too. Even if you don't have scraps, just following the directions will give you a wonderful quilt to snuggle under come winter.
