    Time to clean out the scrap bin

    What to do with all the scraps you just can't throw away? Why grab a coy of SAVE THE SCRAPS and make one of the 15 quilt projects inside!

    The author begins the book by explaining how to organize the scraps and then goes on to how to choose fabrics. Of course, most every quilt book has a technique and tool section and Ms. Bong's book is no different.

    Each pattern has a full page color photo, finished block and finished quilt size before the instructions begin. A materials list and a cutting char are next. Instructions for making the blocks are next and there are lots of graphics to allow the quilter to see what he written words are saying.

    Assembly, borders and finishing suggestions make up the rest of the project's information.

    I found "tip" notes occasionally in some of the patterns but I didn't find any skill levels.

    A three paragraph bio of Ms. Bong finishes up the book. If you have a lot of scraps, this book will be a great help in deciding what to do with them.
