Lissa Alexander’s new quilt book, Scrap School, could not have come out at a better time. With my sewing room now under construction, I recently went through all my scraps. All those scraps are in their correct bin and anxious to become some awesome scrap quilts.
Lissa’s book will be so useful in making this happen. With twelve quilts from nine fabulous designers, it is a treasure trove of great scrap quilts. I just might be able to put a dent in a few of my bins. Or at least be able to get the lids on.
My green bin is one that is having a hard time staying contained to it’s bin. So this fun star quilt by Mary Etherington and Connie Tesene spoke to me. You know I love star quilts. I love the few zinger orange stars that make this quilt pop!
The next quilt that caught my eye was Gudrun Erla’s Spin Cycle. Being a mother of boys, I’m always on the look out for a great man quilt. This one is perfect. I think I will switch it up by making the background scrappy grays and blacks. Then give it some pop with red.
Cutting out Lissa’s Ombre Butterscotch Baskets will be a breeze with my Accuquilt Go and the 2″ finished multiple half square triangle die. I love any quilt that I can cut exclusively with the Go. Especially when it is scrap friendly. Not only does the Go save my wrist. It gets me sewing so much faster.
As you can see this book is full of great scrap quilts. Don’t miss out! Get your copy of Scrap School today.
