Scrappy Quilts: Create an Original Masterpiece
Grab your scraps and start sewing with Better Homes & Gardens - Scrappy Quilts. If you're a quilter, you probably have scraps of fabric. Some might be leftover pieces or strips cut for a project, while others result from the little extra allowance when you purchased fabric for a specific project. Plus, don't forget the fabrics you bought for a project that just weren't right or didn't get used. The joy of quilting is that all for those leftovers, bits strips, and scraps can be combined to create something new and beautiful. When you bring small amounts of fabric together, you really capture the essence of the earliest quilters-using what they had or could repurpose to make quilts for both function and beauty. Re-energize yourself by diving into your stash of fabrics, emptying those scrap bins, and creating one or more of the 15 quilts in this book. Step-by-step instructions and illustrations will guide you through the process, and you control the degree of scrappiness for each project.
