A book for those who just can't part with their scraps
Sep 6, 2010
Scraps, scraps and more scraps. What to do with all those scraps that we just can’t part with????? Grab a copy of CRAZY FOR SCRAPS and your problems will be solved. There are 19 choices for ways to use your scraps. Squares, half triangles and applique are used with a basic background fabric to create a quilt that will be cherished by whoever you give it to.
Each project has a full page color photo. The instructions begin with the finished quilt size, finished block size and the number of blocks needed to create it. A description of the pattern is given with a small photo of the finished block. The materials and cutting lists are clearly written and easy to follow. The written instructions include plenty of graphics to show you what the written steps are all about.
The assembly of the quilt is shown in an exploded row, a sewn row and the rest of the blocks together to form the quilt. As in most books, “quilt as desired” is the author’s suggestion for quilting the project.
The first chapter of five pages is an introduction and successful strategies for making scrap quilts. The final chapter of 13 pages gives basic quilting instructions and includes tips in colorful boxes. All in all, this is a wonderful and beautiful way to use up those scraps that are just waiting for the right project
