    Great quilts from leftovers

    All those pieces of left over binding (if you make yours 2 ½ inches like I do) are just floating around waiting for this book. Each quilt is made from 2 ½" strips. Of course, if you are a new quilter and don't have the "left-overs", you can always buy a jelly roll or cut your own 2 ½" pieces from yardage.

    18 quilts will give you lots of choices to make. But before the instructions, there are 14 pages of general information to get you started on the right track. Each project shows a color photo of the finished quilt complete with finished block and quilt size. Material and cutting lists show you what you need to have material-wise plus what size to cut it into.

    Block assembly has plenty of graphics to make sure you are on the right track and there is another graphic showing how to assemble the quilt. Quilt as desired is the only given instruction for quilting.

    The block types are varied and are very straight forward to sew. No curves here. Grab a copy and start using up all those lonely scraps.
