Throwing away scraps is a tough task for quilters who live for their gorgeous fabric finds, but sometimes it seems that there's just no good way of using them because of their shape or size. Enter Judy Gauthier, who has turned this frustration into a new book, Quilts for Scrap Lovers. Using her clever 3 1/2, 4 1/2, and 5 1/2 inch Block Template System, she shows you how to use almost any leftover fabric in sixteen quilt designs, including tips and tricks for sorting and selecting scraps according to colour and print. Love Patchwork & Quilting, Issue 33 Any quilter knows this situation: scraps accumulate and you're not sure what to do with them. In Quilts for Scrap Lovers, you'll find 16 projects to put them to use. There are even detailed instructions to help you finish a quilt. In some cases, very small pieces of fabric are used in combination with white fabric to create beautiful quilts. Projects can be made by combining different colors - whether in the fresh colors of spring, or in the warm colors of autumn, or in those of Christmas. And if you work with tone-on-tone, success is just as insured. patCHquilt, Spring 2016 All the sixteen quilts are made using three size templates, 3 1/2", 4 1/2", and 5 1/2" squares. These sizes offer sufficient variety to make many blocks. The squares can be cut from real scraps i.e. irregular shaped remnants, sometimes ignoring the grain. It is recommended to stay stitch the bias edges on triangles. Each quilt has a chart giving directions for quilts from cot to king size. One quilt 'Snippets' uses different right angle triangles, leftovers from previous quilts, all smaller than 4" high. British Patchwork & Quilting, August 2016
