This is the third (and last) of the books I purchased at AQS Grand Rapids. It is Big Book of Scrap Quilts by L. Amanda Owens (editor) and Patricia Wilens (editor). This might be my favorite of the three. (Amazon Affiliate link below.)
Basically this is a book of patterns. A big book of patterns, hence the title. Most of these are quilts I want to make. As a matter of fact, the vendor stall where I purchased this had one of the quilts made up, which is what made me really want the book. (For the record, it was the quilt called Dizzy Geese on page 26.) There are 75 patterns in this book. Gorgeous scrappy patterns.
The book starts with an introduction called “For the Love of Fabric” by Patricia Wilens. Then come the quilt patterns, followed by a section called “Step-by-Step Guide to Quiltmaking.” Interspersed in the quilt patterns are some handy tips called Pinpoints.
If you are planning some scrappy quilts, this may well be the book you’re looking for.
