Once again, expert quilt designer Elsie Campbell presents a book of quilt patterns that are one part innovation, one part thrift, and a whole lot of fun! Squares and Triangles, the second in Campbell's "Scrap Quilt Book Series," offers 13 basic but boldly sophisticated patterns. If you're a beginner, you'll want the book for its clear instructions and easy piecing steps.

Making the book a must-have are "Elsie's Top Tips for Squares and Triangle Quilts," complete with full-color diagrams. Says Campbell, "My favorite part of quiltmaking is playing with color and value so that I give a contemporary twist to traditional blocks and patterns."
