Don't let the black-and-yellow cover fool you: Triple-Play Scrap Quilting is one colorful book! There are nine quilts featured, and each one is shown in three different colorways for a completely different look. Quiltmaker Nancy Allen defines the styles as "coordinated scrappy," "planned scrappy," and "makedo scrappy," utilizing fat eighths, fat quarters, and running yardage, as well as precut strips and squares. In addition, different techniques are used, such as paper piecing, applique, strip piecing, and chain piecing.
This is a great resource for using up your stash or adding to it in an organized way so that you can achieve beautiful results.
Having grown up surrounded by quilts made by both of her grandmothers, Nancy Allen of Bountiful, Utah, started her first quilt when she was about 12 years old. By her estimate, Nancy has a big enough stash of blocks of the month, quilt kits, and fabric that she could make more than 50 quilts without buying fabric except perhaps for backing. She hopes that her quilt designs inspire quilters to use up some fabric--or perhaps to buy some more.Visit Nancy's website
