This is a fabulous short book containing 8 projects (55 pages) published by C&T publishers who are excellent US publishers, producing excellent craft books.
The first thing I must say, this book is NOT for beginners!!! As soon as you look at the patterns you are bombarded with reams of fiddly measurements which I found rang alarm bells in my head straight off, specially as the other first reviewer confidently said it was for beginners and experienced quilters!!!
The diagrams are clearly laid out, but look complicated before you start looking at the measurements.
Project 1. Freckles
Beautiful project, light background with colourful circles on top.
The first thing I noticed is the picture doesn't match the pattern layout!!!! I am sure the finished item matches the final size, but to me this re enforces the fact, this is NOT FOR BEGINNERS!!! Personally, I think the author should have provided 2 patterns, one, to show what has been made in the photograph, and the second, the alternative pattern shown in the book!!!!
Project 2. Plumb
Fabulous quilt, easier to get your head around this one plus it helps that the picture relates more to the pattern, plus she shows it in two colour ways which is excellent. The diagram is bigger, and you are not bombarded with measurements on this project. This project I am more likely to enjoy having a go with, plus it's a great way to use if you have been given a jelly roll for Christmas or birthday and you are not sure what to do with it??
Project 3, Beeline
Again, the photo of the project does not match the pattern given, luckily, this is an easy project to manage, specially if you have a jelly roll to use. This is just lines of strips of fabric.

On the back of the book it says "Intriguing, contemporary patterns are geared for both the adventurous beginner and the confident intermediate quilter". If you're a beginner, I think you'll have a hard time relying on this book alone, so why not use for instance Elizabeth Hartman's "The Practical Guide to Patchwork" or Camille Roskelley's "Simplify" together with this "Scrap Republic" by Emily Cier? There are also numerous free tutorials online, if you don't mind looking in several places. Once you've overcome the first hurdle, however, "Scrap Republic" is a wonderful book!

1. Important Bits and Pieces: Lots of tips on how to bust also the thread stash and how to build up the quilt back using scraps.
2. The Weekend Stasher: Freckles, Plumb, Beeline, and Slices (all are 30"x30").
3. The I-Have-Nothing-to-Hide-Anymore Stasher: Volume (40"x48"), Hover (48"x48"), Whirl (64"x64"), and Pivot (60"x60").

- The scrap quilts are just that, built from scraps in improvisational manner, and the point is not to write instructions for exact replicas of each quilt made by Emily Cier; how else would you use your own stash of random-sized pieces of scrap fabric? As long as you build blocks and trim them to the sizes given, you'll make a quilt of similar overall composition, albeit unique thanks to your particular scraps.
- They follow the same, clear structure; What you need, Scrap selection, Assembly, Finishing, and Solace for the scrapless (the pattern for yardage). It's good to keep this in mind, because the assembly diagrams can look a bit overwhelming thanks to their large differences, if you just flick through the book.

Great book for all quilters, beginners through to experienced quilters who are looking for some good ideas to make quilts from scraps. Very well written instructions, all projects beautifully photographed. I would recommend this book, a great addition to any Quilters's library.

HASH(0x97042090) out of 5 stars Recipe for the creative quilter 10 Oct. 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A refreshing approach to modern scrap quilting. If you love color & simply can't bear to toss out those beautiful bits of extra fabric this is the book for you. Nothing too difficult to tackle technically since the book focuses more on providing a recipe for color & design rather than worry about sewing techniques. Any quilter interested in stepping away from traditional patterns will enjoy this approach. Whether your interested in a weekend project or a larger quilt "Scrap Republic" is a delightful study in color & design. So dig out those scraps and don't be afraid to play! This would be a fun addition to any quilters library. I look forward to checking out Ms Cier's first book "Quilt Remix" Enjoy!

HASH(0x940614c8) out of 5 stars Love ALL of Emily Cier's work! 25 Oct. 2011
By patricianyc - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I just bought this book for myself, and am sending another copy to my quilting sister-in-law. I also have Emily's first book, Quilting Remix; I love her sense of color, shape and the unusual geometry of her patterns. Clear, easy to understand instructions.

HASH(0x932e2948) out of 5 stars Delightful reference 11 April 2012
By Lora Lee Douglas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I like this book very much. It is a quilt project book containing 8 projects with some basic technique instructions. Ms. Cier gives instructions for making the projects from your own scraps and also from yardage in case you don't have a stash of scraps. The quilts in this book are very modern, colorful and scrappy. Some of the quilts in this book can be tackled by a beginner quilter, but others would require knowledge of techniques beyond the scope of this book, such as different methods of applique. While I may not make any of the quilts in the book, I will refer to it often for inspiration.

HASH(0x94172bac) out of 5 stars Good resource for building modern quilts 6 Feb. 2012
By D. Clark - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have been sewing and quilting for years and was looking for a fresh take on my quilting projects. I found Emily Cier's projects and directions a great starting point for a new take on my work. There are two quilts in this book that i am definitely going to make down the road. Her directions can be easily customized for your own unique look. Good solid resource.
HASH(0x939153cc) out of 5 stars Scrap Republic 7 Oct. 2012
By flyingpinwheel - Published on Amazon.com

Scrap Republic is a very good book for those who have a lot of scraps left over from quilt projects, which I do. The first few pages were inspiring to assemble and size, workable pieces of fabric. Most quilts in book are 30"x30" which gave me great ideas especially for baby quilts. There are patterns of each that are for the "Scrapless", Those of you who have not accumulated scraps. All patterns are pretty and though detailed, they are easy, even for a confident beginner. If you don't prefer a colorful quilt, then just change it up with your colors, because the quilts in this book are very colorful!
