This is a book that uses fat quarters and pre-cuts so you can get right down to sewing any of these 14 projects.

There is a short paragraph for each before the material and cutting lists along with colored photos. There is even an exploded graphic of way the whole project goes together. Tips are set off in colored boxes and the quilting of the piece is left up to you. The patterns are well written and easy to follow.

You can be sure you are doing it right by looking at the included graphics which show the stages of the piecing. Any templates needed are included at 100%. The last page is a bio about the author.

The whole book is all about quilts but you can change the size by making less blocks or adding more to create whatever size you need. So, dig out those precuts and fat quarters you have been saving and start creating your next quilt.
Seems Like Scrappy is an excellent resource if, like me, you are trying to use up fabrics you've collected for the past few years (to make room for newer lines, that is!). Throughout the book Rebecca gives us 'scrappy tips' to help with and color fabric selection so quilts will be appealing to the eye instead of a 'hot mess' as she says it

There are some interesting new blocks and twist on traditional blocks which you will enjoy. Although her patterns feature precuts and fat quarters, the well written directions include equivalent measurements which is handy as you dig into your scrap bag.

Above all, this book has inspired me to 'think outside the box' and venture further along my scrappy quilt journey. It will likely inspire you, too!
I look forward to winning this fantastic book. I usually by fabric and cut it for each project. But I have been buying precuts in the last month. When I win I will have some to play with.
Such a fun book! I love all the different designs, and options for using up scraps...or just pretending you're using up scraps. All these ideas are adorable, and you won't be sad you got the book. Enjoy.
Great ideas for using your scraps and let's face it ladies, we all have scraps. Rebecca offers patterns from traditional to modern and there is something for everyone.How gratifying is it to make a beautiful quilt from scraps? (They don't even look like scrappy quilts) I love the ideas offered and am making some quilts from the patterns in this book. I would definitely add this one to your library.

Rebecca is a creative soul with a passion for quilting. Thanks to her background in graphic design and her lifelong dabblings in art, Rebecca's interest in all things quilting began with the allure of fabric. After opening Ruby Blue Quilting Studio in 2009, she published her first book, Seamingly Scrappy (Martingale, 2013), and continues to create scrappy quilts as often as she can. When Rebecca isn't working on a new quilt at home in Ohio, she's probably traveling with her husband, Ben, discovering a new favorite home away from home. No matter where Rebecca is, you can always find her on her blog. Visit
