PUBLISHER’S INSIGHTS

Want to be a scrap quilter? Great! Want to think like a scrap quilter? Learn from a master! Lissa Alexander has spent three decades honing her scrap-quilting talents, and in her first solo book, she offers page after page of tips for making dazzling scrap quilts bursting with colors, prints, and textures. Learn Lissa’s secrets for deciding which fabric combinations work (and understanding why others don’t). Best of all, with a dozen patterns to choose from you’ll discover how to (finally!) use your unique stash to make scrap quilts that sing. Includes a preface by renowned quilt historian Barbara Brackman.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Online she’s ModaLissa, but by day, Lissa Alexander is heading up the Moda marketing team. By night, she’s quilting, blogging, designing, and more at modalissa.com. Her wish? “I hope you get time to sit and sew. It’s good for the soul.”

MY REVIEW

While this book is a “must have” for those that love scrap quilts, it is also a great book for quilters looking for fun and fast quilts that you could make from purchased yardage, even some pre-cuts.

There are 12 beautifil projects in this book that range in size from 34 1/2″ x 42 1/2″ to 80 1/2″  x 96 1/2″, each comes with easy to follow instructions that include great visuals, making the price of this book an exception value, especially when you consider the cost of a standalone pattern.

I also think this book would make for fun quilt guild challenges, as well as open the doors for quilt shops to draw in customers with classes targeted to beginners, or even intermediate-advanced quilters, looking for ways to reduce their stash (while buying blenders from the store, if they don’t already have them in their stash).

This truly is a great new book, packed with #CreativeGoodness. I hope you get a chance to check it out at our favorite quilt shop. But if you don’t see it, do let them know you’d like to see them make it available. It is so new, that they may not be aware of this book.  Of course, you can also check it out online at Martingale’s online store, as well as Amazon.
