Meet the Author

While living in central Ohio as a newlywed, Kay took one class and became an instant quilter. She was an appliqué enthusiast from the get-go!

A few years later, fortune took the Mackenzies to Santa Cruz, California, where Kay now lives with her husband of more than two decades, science journalist Dana Mackenzie.

Classes in digital media at the local college introduced Kay to computer illustration, and again it was love at first try. Appliqué design and computer drawing--what a great combo platter! Combine them with a writerly bent and, according to Kay, you've got the best job in the world!

    Scraps and appliques

    This book starts out with a 16 page section on how to do applique. It covers scrap applique methods, preparation, stitching and finishing.

    There are eight projects which are categorized as quilts but they are small and more like wall hangings in my opinion. Of course, like all quilters, you can add more and make them into a lap or bed sized quilt. Each project has the templates needed for the appliques at full size.

    A color photo of the item is shown and the finished size is given. Instructions are clearly written and have graphics to help make sure you are on the right track. Quilting instructions are provided in the section called The Finish Line. The last page has a short bio on the author.

    If you like scraps and applique, this is a must-have for your quilting library.
