The Moda All-Stars Scraps Made Simple: 15 Sensationally Scrappy Quilts from Precuts focusses on how to use Charm Packs, Layer Cakes, Jelly Rolls, Fat-Eighth Bundles, Fat-Quarter Bundles, Dessert Rolls, Honey Buns and Bella Solids to create scrappy quilts. I'm sure if you were truly creative you could use these patterns to create quilts from your own scraps as you'll find directions for that too. You will find very clear explanations for each type of Precuts listed above including the definition of a Junior Jelly Roll which has 20 strips total in a precut package of fabric. You will also find tips and ideas on how to manage quilt fabric including how to store scraps for later use in quilting. The directions on how to assemble the quilt patterns together are clear and well-illustrated. The galley e-book I reviewed include external links to Martingale.com to obtain information on how to complete the quilt. Some of the quilt patterns also included an external link to download a PDF pattern file. Some of the quilt patterns you'll find in this book include: Scrap Basket Quilt: This quilt pattern uses a Jelly Roll to create a 62 x 86-inch quilt. Housewarming Quilt: This quilt pattern uses Fat-Eighths to create a 60 x 74-inch quilt. This quilt pattern has an external link to download a PDF file to print the patterns used to complete the quilt. Missouri Roads: This quilt pattern uses Charm Packs and a Jelly Roll to create a 60 1/2 x 72 1/2-inch quilt. Recommend. Review written after downloading a galley from Edelweiss.
