Review from Stick Your Nose in a Book: Quilting Book Reviews by Jennifer Zoeterman
This book really impressed me. I love scrap quilts and I would like to make every one of the eighteen quilts. All the projects from 2 1/2" strips are made from rectangles and squares, using just two methods: folded corner units and split units. The names may not be familiar to some, but they are so easy to sew. There are good sections on cutting and storing strips from scraps, stash yardage, and jelly rolls. All the quilts are pleasing and look much more complicated than they are. I will never cut a fabric again without cutting a 2 1/2" strip first. I know many of you already do this, so you are halfway there. I am even going to start looking at jelly rolls, which I never could figure out how to use! Now I want her first book, Scrap-Basket Surprises. A keeper!
Best-selling author of the popular "Scrap-Basket" series of quilt books, Kim Brackett developed an interest in quilting in 1988 after admiring a collection of vintage quilts displayed in an antique shop. She began gathering tools, fabrics, and patterns and finally finished her first quilt 10 years later. Since then she has completed countless quilts, many of which have been featured in her books. Although she prefers hand quilting, she has overcome many of the challenges of machine quilting and enjoys finishing her quilts in much less time. Kim works full-time as a paralegal in Pensacola, Florida.Visit Kim's website
