To sew again 28 Sept. 2011
By wogan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book gives directions for 32 quilts; however they are really not quilts made from scraps. In theory you could use scraps, but the directions are for only fat quarters and larger pieces of fabric.
With each quilt a project rating of easy, intermediate and complicated are given (inexplicably three are missing this). Hints are given, charts, steps and diagrams make the directions pretty clear; although I would not say this is for a beginning quilter, unless they were an experienced `sewer' with some determination to start on the easy ones.

There are very clear instructions in a general instruction section. The quilts that I had success with and look more difficult than they were are the; artisan star and seams of opal. The simple cross would be my first choice for an inexperienced quilter. It does turn out into a handsome project.
This is one of the better quilting books, but really does not deserve the title of scrap material.
Your Scrappy Quilts have never looked so good 5 Sept. 2013
By Judie Bellingham - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The Best of Fons & Porter Scrap Quilts publication is brimming with fabulous scrappy patterns for quilters of all skill levels to achieve.

The usual stunning photographs and instructions that Leisure Arts are so well know for, appear here in this terrific quilt book. There are 31 patchwork and appliqué patterns available here, including patterns such as Cathedral Window, Jacob's Ladder, Kaleidoscope and Thousand Pyramids.

Also included is the trademarked Sew Easy lesson that Fons and Porter are so well known for. If you've got scraps, this book has just the pattern for you.
Great book 2 Feb. 2014

You can't go wrong with Fons & Porter in my opinion when working on quilts. The quilts are beautiful and the directions are easily read and easy to understand. We all have scraps, and this puts them to good use.
Good quilting book 18 Sept. 2013

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I haven't made anything from it yet, but I have read through the whole book. Lots of interesting patterns. With most (all?) they give you at least one other color example. Good, clear instructions.
