Quick easy scrap quilt patterns to make you smile – in Scrap Quilt Projects ebook from one of the UK’s foremost quilting teachers, Katharine Guerrier. The finished projects are ideal for the home, for gifts, or for fundraising events. Choose from a pencil case, needlecase, tablemats, a novelty chicken doorstop, shopping and laundry bags, cushions, a mini wallhanging, and medium-sized Flying Geese quilt. Many of these scrap quilt patterns can be made from leftover fabric scraps from your quilting stash.
Template-free quick piecing methods make for speedy production in many of the projects, and where templates are required, these can be printed straight from your PC. Several techniques (such as quick pieced Flying Geese, asymmetrical star, prairie points) are introduced to expand a beginner’s skills, or broaden the expertise of those with more experience.
So, if you are already a committed quilter, take a break from long-term projects to enjoy the satisfaction of completing something quickly. If you are a complete beginner, these scrap quilt projects make a good introduction to some basic patchwork and machine quilting techniques.
‘A great book if you are looking for quick and cheerful projects to give away as gifts, for sale tables or to fine tune your patchwork skills. The colours and detail came alive on my computer screen and I had no problem browsing through the book, formatted as a 60 page PDF. It’s PC and Mac compatible, there are direct links to suppliers’ websites and all the templates can be printed off. Katharine has included very clear directions and you can print these out, project by project. I think I might prefer to go for the paperless option and do my bit for the environment. A perfect gift for those who want to save the planet and create some lovely gifts and accessories whilst doing so.’ – Popular Patchwork
