Review from Generation Q Magazine, Fall/Winter 2016
Author Kim Brackett is back again with a super-solid go-to book for quilting with precut 2.5" strips, 5" squares and 10" squares. Each of the 18 quilts in Scrap-Basket Strips and Squares is another quilt we'd love to do (which certainly doesn't always happen), and they're made with basic, non-fiddly shapes. That means for us it's a great go-to for both beginners and the more advanced Q-bies. There are also tips for each project on how to create it using scraps, you know, for those of us who have a bin or two!
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
