A MESSAGE FROM THE AUTHORS

Those who have lost a loved one universally need comfort. When our Grandmother passed away in 1985, her oldest grandson (our cousin) wanted something tangible by which to remember her. He thought her dresses would be beautiful made into a quilt. Not knowing anyone who quilted, he held onto them for 14 years. At a family reunion, he learned about our interest in quilting and asked if we would consider making a quilt for him.Grandma''s dresses were old, well worn and of questionable fiber content. We knew this quilt would have to be handled differently than a quilt made with newer 100 percent cotton fabric. We weren't sure where to begin so we looked for books on the subject and there were none to be found. Without a guide, we had to start from scratch and learn many different techniques to allow us to work with these old clothes, while also combining them with new fabrics.We knew there had to be many people like us who were looking for answers on how to use clothing in quilts, and we felt it was our destiny to help those people find the answers and receive the comfort they were seeking. Our own mother passed away recently and we plan on making quilts for all of our siblings. We can't think of anything we would rather do then snuggle up in a quilt made with Mom''s clothing. We hope you enjoy Scraps of Time and find comfort between the pages. Ann Frischkorn and Amy Sandrin

This is a wonderful book with patterns that are easy to understand. There are 9 patterns from which to choose. This book is written with love of family and tradition and has a plan for all those fabrics we have saved for years.

Very impressive-full of beautiful photos, clear, concise directions, and meaningful inspirations. Sisters Ann and Amy have written a touching bestseller here-a 'how to' quilting book with a heart!

I am so happy I found this book. It was worth every penny. The authors did an awesome job of walking you through working with various clothing fabrics and how to combine them with newer fabrics in a quilt. I plan on making a quilt out of my Son's Army Jacket. Something I can wrap around and comfort myself with. Thanks Amy and Ann....from the bottom of my heart!

I have been holding onto some precious clothing for a long time wondering how to make a quilt out of them. This books shows you how and so much more. There is even a 'What If' section included with each pattern that suggests alternate ways to work with each quilt. How cool is that? I would highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to make a lasting memory out of special clothing.

I find that Scraps of Time was very insightful, as to show how to preserve the loved ones around us as well as the ones that have passed on. I was able to understand how to quilt.
