The book starts with an interesting Preface by Barbara Brackman on the History of Scrap Quilting, and has 12 projects that are great for using your scrap stash. With the costs of fabric now, using our stash is a wonderful way to make some special quilts. Lissa gives some great tips on what makes a good scrap quilt through out the book.
If you are like me, you have a lot of miscellaneous blues in your stash. This quilt called Friendship Blues is a great way to use a wide range of light and dark blues. The quilts uses squares which are quick and easy to cut out - maybe you have a stack all ready to go!
Another one of my favorite quilts from the book is called Kismet. This is a Courthouse Steps pattern.
It's great to have another book on using your scraps and Lissa does a wonderful job. Look for it in your local quilt shops, or online at shopmartingale.com
