Yesterday, just as I was wondering what book to review today, the doorbell rang and I got an Amazon delivery. (I still can’t get used to the Sunday deliveries.) It was Addicted to Scraps: 12 Vibrant Quilt Projects by Bonnie K. Hunter. I figured it was a sign, so today we are looking at it. Below are the Amazon Affiliate links – first the paperback, then the Kindle version. And yes, there is a Look Inside, so check them out!
There are some gorgeous scrap quilts in this book. There are about 6 that I definitely want to make and another two or three I would be interested in making with a more controlled color palette.
The book starts with a Dedication and Acknowledgments. Then it is on to the Table of Contents and the Foreword. The Table of Contents is beautiful because there is a row from each quilt below the title and page number for that quilt. This makes it very easy to find the quilt you want to make even if you don’t remember the name of it.
The Basic Sewing Guidelines come next and they include a bit about That 1/4″ Seam Allowance, The Scrap User’s System, and Specialty Rulers.
The Projects are next. The directions are well-written and well-illustrated, which is what you expect from Bonnie Hunter.
The projects are followed by About the Author and Resources.
Got some scraps? Want to use them? I recommend this one!
