Making Scrap Quilts to Use It upBook - 2003
Internationally recognized quilt designer Lynne Edwards has produced a collection of exciting and creative ideas for using up leftover fabrics.Almost half the purchases made by quilters are for fabrics, often bought on impulse without a project in mind. Add to this the leftovers that result from every completed project and quilters have an ever-growing hoard of material.In this book Lynne Edwards provides quilters with plenty of ideas and inspiration for making quilts and other, smaller projects from their fabric stash.The full-size quilt projects explore patchwork and quilting techniques ideal for producing quilts from fabrics sorted according to tonal value (lights/mediums/darks) rather than simply by colour or design. Schemes for smaller projects, such as a cushion in One-square cathedral window design, or a cot quilt in Suns and stars design, really help the quilter to use up as many scraps of material as possible.
