Marianne Fons, Liz Porter
Scrappy quilts continue to grow in popularity today, being the ultimate "green" recycling project as well as offering quilters a thrifty way to keep quilting in tough economic times. This big collection of quilts represents more than 20 favorite scrap-friendly projects from issues of Fons & Porter’s Love of Quilting magazine. Patterns suitable for using fabric fat quarters and fat eighths are specially identified. The patterns are organized by technique, from patchwork and applique to paper foundation piecing, and are designed for a range of bed sizes, as well as baby quilts and lap throws. Each quilt is shown in a lifestyle photograph and an assembly diagram, accompanied by a complete materials list and step-by-step instructions.
