In Scrap House Quilt, Katharine Guerrier shows how to create her freely pieced house blocks and put them together to make your own lively and quirky scrap house quilt.
Quilts using this formula can be made any size, incorporating different elements and techniques: novelty fabric for gardens, farmyard or sky, curved seams for landscape panels, block samples left over from previous projects and oddments of fabric you will almost certainly have in your scrap bag.
Follow these guidelines and techniques, and watch the author demonstrating on the video clips, then add your ideas, orphan blocks and variations, to make your own unique quilt.
The interest is kept up as you work because decisions are made as you construct the quilt. It’s almost as if you can make it up as you go along!
Why is Scrap House Quilt so popular?
‘I think that the use of the video for different techniques is very helpful and really helps to clarify things. It’s like having Katharine in the house to teach you. As always, Katharine shows you how to make your own quilt using her design elements, rather than giving you a pattern to make a quilt exactly like hers, that’s why she is such a great teacher.’- Lynn Cooke
What do others think?
‘This book is so fun! What a fantastic way to use up our precious scraps of fabric. The whole idea of fussy cutting a novelty print to put in the windows of the houses is brilliant to me. Katharine Guerrier’s instructions are easy to follow and understand.
The embedded instructional videos in the ebook make it like you are having a private class with the author but if you miss a point or need to see it again you can just replay the video.’ Anita LaHay
