Scraps features 16 original Judy Martin designs. Every quilt is presented in 3 sizes so you can make the design you like in the size you want. You are given your choice of accurate rotary cutting instructions or templates. Fat quarter requirements and yardage are listed for every quilt in every size. Color diagrams show piecing details. And every pattern is rated for ease of cutting, ease of sewing, and ease of thinking. Perhaps the greatest challenge with Scraps is in deciding which quilt to make first! Several quilts feature shadows and other dimensional effects that make patches appear to float over the surface of the quilt. You’ll find an abundance of stars, including a magnificent Lone Star. In addition you’ll see a Log Cabin, a Wedding Ring variation (with no curves!), an exotic Nine-Patch, a beautiful flower quilt, and much more.
Scraps is more than just patterns. The upfront material draws upon Judy’s decades of making quilts from scraps. She offers basic quiltmaking information plus scrap quilt cutting strategies, techniques for sewing with scraps, suggestions for building and organizing your stash, and ideas for working with color and style in scraps.
Whether you’re looking for a pattern that is clearly simple, surprisingly easy, or stunningly beautiful, your next quilt should be made from Scraps.
