Our charity guild has managed to save up two huge bags of scraps. This book has come along just in time to save ourselves from ourselves. With a Baker’s Dozen of quilts, we should be able to whittle those bags down to something more manageable.
The very first pattern, “Fatty, Fatty, 2 x 4 Throw,” makes use of some 12.5" and lots of 3.5" squares. The quilts are a hodge podge of colors so grab the ones you like and use up those scraps.
Each pattern has a color photo and finished size. A list of fabrics and supplies is followed by cutting suggestions if you are using fat quarters. This particular pattern doesn’t have a lot of written instruction because the assembly is super simple. Plenty of graphics make sure that written words are not as needed.
The other dozen quilts show many ways to use up scraps of material. If any templates are needed – there are quilts with applique on them – they are provided at full size. Several patterns have color variations shown as well.
The book winds up with a general instructions and glossary section that is 15 pages long and covers squaring up blocks, types of tools and sewing hints to name a few. I can’t wait to show this book to my guild.
The Midwest Book Review—Wisconsin Bookwatch: November, 2013
A quilt is a type of blanket, traditionally composed of three layers of fiber: a woven cloth top, a layer of batting or wadding and a woven back, combined using the technique of quilting. A quilt is distinguishable from other types of blankets because it is pieced together with several pieces of cloth. Thimbleberries® Scrap Quilts is a superbly illustrated, 80 page, instructional compendium of scrap quilt projects that even the most novice of quilters can readily follow to produce outstanding patchwork designs. Included are step-by-step designs for making throws, runners, wallhangings, band pillows, and more. Each showcased quilting project includes fabrics and supplies, patch creation and assembling, and full color pictures of the finished result. Thoroughly ‘user friendly,’ Thimbleberries® Scrap Quilts is very highly recommended for novice quilters and has substantial value for even the more experienced needlecrafter.
