Is it mean that I’m reviewing this book that is apparently difficult to find new even though it has a 2014 copyright? I don’t care! I’m going to review it anyway!
Today we are looking at Handfuls of Scraps – Pieced Into Amazing Quilts by Edyta Sitar. It is only available from third party sellers on Amazon, but you can get it at her website with no problem. This probably has to do with the fact that it is self-published.
I’m an Edyta Sitar fan, I love her fabrics and her patterns and someday I will really make one. Honest. I have the Craftsy class that she teaches, Garden of Quilted Possibilities (w/ Edyta Sitar) (yeah, that link is through my affiliate status), and I purchased the fabric kit and I plan to actually do it someday. But I digress.
This book starts with pictures of antique scrap quilts. Very inspirational. All full page pictures. Eye candy galore.
The next section is her techniques section. The part that stood out to me here is that she covered Broderie Appliqué, which I don’t usually see covered in books.
The final section (except for the About the Author) is the collection of patterns. All of which I marked as possibilities, although my versions will probably be made of brighter colors. Yep, I’m a fan.
So, yes, I recommend this book. It’s a keeper for me.
