Library Journal Review

Horton dedicates this book to all those individuals who have said to me, I cant do that, Im a traditional quiltmaker. Over the years, she has amassed a remarkable collection of scrap quilts. Here she uses 65 pieces from her collection to illustrate effective ways to work with different fabric categories (textured fabric, printed motifs, plaids) and colors in designing quilts from fabric scraps. While she discusses such familiar topics as the use of color and choosing fabrics, she also emphasizes topics not widely covered elsewhere, such as free-form piecing and cutting paper patterns for appliqus based on drawings. Neither a pattern collection nor a how-to book, this is a guide to using fabric scraps in novel and creative ways. Highly recommended for quilting collections.
