Scrap quilts are not only practical and economical to make, they offer a freedom and vitality of design sometimes lacking in traditional quilts. This clearly worded, easy-to-follow guide enables quilters with a basic knowledge of quiltmaking techniques to make their own attractive, one-of-a-kind scrap quilt. In the opening section, veteran quiltmaker and author Judy Florence offers expert advice on managing fabric and design approaches. She also provides helpful suggestions for adapting designs and describes some traditional patterns suitable for scrap quilts. In the second section you'll find specific instructions and full-size patterns for seven eye-catching quilts — each possessing a distinct charm of its own. Designs range from elementary to moderately difficult, allowing quilters to select the patterns best suited to their particular levels of expertise — from the easy-to-construct Attic Windows to the intricately pieced and placed fabrics in Stars and Bars. In between, there are five other charming designs: Bow Tie, Brickwork, Alphabetical by Flavor, Hole in the Barn Door, and Escape. Ideal for both beginning and veteran quilters, this volume will be a welcome addition to any needlecrafter's personal library.
