Oh Scrap!

Hello! I can't even tell you how excited I am to be able to talk a little bit about a new quilt book that is one of those "must haves!"  I was able to get a look at this book back in January, and I couldn't stop reading it!  You'll not only love it for the beautiful photos, but you'll also want to read it cover-to-cover for the great information included (and then make every quilt in the book)!


Oh, Scrap is a hot-off-the-press book written by Lissa Alexander.  Lissa is one 


of my favorite people--a down-to-earth  genuinely good person who is also decidedly passionate about her family and quilting!  You will love learning from her through her book (as I have been blessed to be able to do for many years).  I really do want to make every quilt in the book...starting with this Awesomeland quilt above.  I just love it and think it would be fun in many, many different color combinations.  The hardest part will be deciding what colors to use!
 


I was really excited to see Lissa's quilt "Surrounded" included in the book.  I have always loved this quilt and think this is the first design of Lissa's that I sewed a few years back when it was published in American Patchwork & Quilting.  




Here is a picture of my Surrounded quilt...I sewed it as part of the American Patchwork & Quilting sew along using all American Jane fabrics from my stash.  I remember utilizing a lot of chain piecing to make this quilt!  It's truly one of my most cherished quilts!

 
I took oh so many pictures of this the other day getting ready for this post...and just have to share this one that shows the binding and one of my favorite low-volume prints in the quilt (the one with all of the punctuation marks)!


I also need to make this Stair Steps quilt right away...I don't think I've ever met a simple patchwork quilt I didn't love, and this one is perfect for working on in-between other projects. I love the light and low-volume fabrics mixed with the scrappy patches!



And then there is this Friendship Blues quilt...I think you get the idea...every quilt is very make-able and so scrap friendly. I could keep posting photo after photo of every quilt in the book...but really, you should just get it! 

The best part of the book, though, isn't the fabulous photos or the terrific quilts...it's the incredible treasure trove of information included in such a wonderful way.  Lissa writes so that you feel like you're sitting at her kitchen table with her discussing quilts.  She gives many ideas on every aspect of scrap quilting sprinkled with her wonderful perspective.  She truly has an eye for pattern and color and a way of easily conveying her knowledge to the reader.



And the cover quilt...another one I want to make!  Best of all...one of my readers will be able win an e-copy of this book from Martingale.  Simply leave a comment letting me know any of your thoughts on scrap quilting, and I'll choose a winner on March 26th.

I love these patterns! I use scraps whenever I can. But they are taking over my space and I need to make a big project to use them up!

Kleine Vingers said...

The pictures are so beautiful, I wish I had the book to inspire me to make another quilt using scraps

Jodi - usairdoll said...

Love your scrappy quilts! Aren’t they fun? I really enjoy using scraps. It’s great for variety and using those favorite fabrics all up. It’s hard for me to toss any scraps. My smallest scraps go for my 1/4” EPP quilt I’m making or maybe it will be a tablerunner, hehe. Great job! Thanks for sharing!

Kay said...

I love using up scraps, I am not so good at allowing a quilt to be 'scrappy' though, I still have to be quite controlling with my fabric placement. x

Joan and Kevin said...

I love to make scrap quilts. I keep all my scraps in containers after I finish a quilt. So I can make a scrap quilt with it later. Thanks!

Karen Ganote said...

Try as I might, I can never use all my scraps-they must surely multiply in the dark when I'm not looking!! I love scrappy deigns and this book looks perfect.

Frog Quilter said...

I am a serious scrap quilter and would love to receive a copy of this book. frog2quilt@gmail.com

kt said...

Looks like a great book. I love scrappy quilts and these all look like winners to me!

Gretchen Weaver said...

I try to use from my scraps/stash but it never seems like it decreases. I like Surround the best. Happy Stitching!

Tracie said...

I love all the photos! Typically I don’t save scraps but rather give them away. That might change!

Linda Enneking said...

I enjoy making scrap quilts because I don't have to stress over which print of a particular color to use. I can use several, as many as I want. That makes it so much fun.

Laura said...

I like scrap quilts, but i dislike the organizing my scraps part.

Julie in GA said...

Scrap quilts are the best! I love using bits of fabric that have accumulated over the years; it's like revisiting old friends. I would love to win a copy of this book.

Rebecca J Smith said...

I think scrap quilts are so pretty. I need to make more and get my scrap bins under control.

sandi collins said...

Looks like a great book. Would love to add it to my library

Little Quiltsong said...

Scrappy quilts are usually on my list the beginning of each year. Love seeing Lissa's patterns in her new book - wonderful ideas!

Machelle said...

For years, I did not know if I liked scrappy quilts or not. I loved the ones my great grandmother's had made. They were different than ones I saw in magazines or on blogs. I realized I liked the ones I owned better because,not only did I have precious memories attached to them,my grandmother had a nack for making them sort of "coordinated". They did not look like a mish mash of random not thought out color blurs( or as a friend of mine would say "scrap vomit") The ones in this book look amazing!

Laura Lane said...

I love scrap quilts! In antique quilts, it is fun to look at all of the different fabrics used. In my own quilting , I think it adds interest to a quilt.

krisgray said...

Scrap quilts are the best! Love the variety and the often small pieces that comprise the blocks. There's always something to notice.

Shelley Michel said...

I confess that I am not a scrappy quilter. While I love the way they look, I’m more comfortable with a kit that is already coordinated for me. But, all the reviews I’m seeing of Lissa’s book really make me want to branch out!!

Steve & Nicole Worthington said...

Scrap quilts are great leader-ender projects. I love mixing colors and patterns that I usually wouldn't put together in simple blocks. Mindless sewing is necessary sometimes!

Caro said...

I love scrap quilts! They make a quilt way more interesting to me.

momto1 said...

I think that if anyone DIDN’T care for scrappy before seeing this book, they’d be totally smitten by now. There are so many beauties in these photos, and every one of them looks like something to snuggle under. I agree...the hard part will be choosing which one to make first.

Martha Austin said...

I have a treasure trove of scraps....like a large basket filled with beautiful pieces of past quilts!!
I’m piecing 2 scrap quilts and also foundation piecing with 1-2 1/2” strips. I love to snuggle under a happy scrap quilt.

Jayne said...

I love scrappy quilts, so much variety in them. Thanks for the chance to win!

Linda Williamson said...

This book has some great scrappy quilts. I love the Indian Blanket, blue and yellow combo is a favorite. Thanks for sharing. grinnie1961 at gmail dot com

Karen Sikes said...

I don't have a scrap quilt, but have lots of scraps, maybe I need to get busy on one

Teresa Brown said...

Scrap quilts are my favorite. With so many different fabrics in them they just seem to sparkle.

Stephanie Hanson said...

Love scrappy quilts, and I want to make that surround quilt right now.

Linda Blodgett said...

Your Surround quilt is fantastic. You have inspired me! It has been on my list of To Do quilts for many years but has never made it to the top. My fabric collection looks like it could make a scrappy one now. Thanks for sharing your picture!

Becky said...

Scrap quilts are my absolute favorite! I began quilting because of scraps from other sewing projects. This book looks fabulous. Picking up my copy today from my local quilt shop. Many thanks!

Catherine O'Hora said...

How beautiful all these are! I would scrap-bust with so many of these quilts!

Chris Pawlak said...

I have never made a scrap quilt, but these pictures of the quit make me want to try one or maybe all of them

jrquilts said...

I LOVE SCRAP QUILTS, BUT NO MATTER HOW MANY I WORK ON THE SCRAPS KEEP MULTIPLYING LIKE BUNNY'S . hjrogers@sympatico.ca

Marianne said...

Scrap quilts are the best! This book looks fabulous, the photography alone is beautiful.

MMorton said...

Love scrap quilts. This book sounds like a wonderful resource.

Darlene B said...

I love scrap quilts! The more variety the better!

JammaJo said...

This book should inspire me to organize my extensive scrap collection and get cracking to whittle it down! What wonderful ideas here!

Betsy Maier said...

So love scrap quilts. Definitely on my "bucket list" of quilts to make. This book is the nudge I need to make that scrappy quilt! (betsyinparadise@yahoo.com)

Cecilia said...

I have made a few scrappy quilts and I love them. This book has inspired me to use all of my scraps to make all of the quilts in this book!

Ramona Johnson said...

Scrappy quilts tell stories of previous quilts made. I enjoy taking trips down memory lane with each scrap. 😊

Karen said...

These scrappy patterns are great! I love how every one can be totally different depending on the scraps available.

Karen - Quilts...etc. said...

the majority of my quilts are from scraps - love them - I have a big queen size scrap quilt on my hand quiting frame right now and 4 more waiting to be quilting, plus making more - always

quilter said...

I have made a couple scrappy quilts, and would love to check out this book. cork@pa.rr.com

Adrienne said...

Gorgeous scrappy quilts. All of them. The workmanship, the color choices, and the placement are pure art. I'm just getting into scrappy. I love it. The possibilities are endless. Very satisfying. And, lots of fun.

Joyce Carter said...

I really love scrap quilts. Not only are they beautiful, but they give you the chance to use up all those beautiful fabrics that you have saved from other projects through out the years. (And I do save every last piece.) Thank you for the chance.

D.R. Shideler said...

I love the quilts you've pictured! Scrappy quilts feel so happy and comforting to me.

Linda Cates said...

I love being able to use every piece of fabric with no waste and the challenge involved. Can't wait to read Lissa's book.

Tina Jeo said...

I love scrappy quilts and to use leftover fabric from dresses I made for my daughter. I can bring back memories when my daughter was little. Thanks! tljeo at yahoo dot com

Cathy B said...

Loving all the scrappiness in this book, and have enjoyed following along the hop!
basaran.family@rogers.com

Christine said...

I am looking forward to "picking" Lissa's brain for all the scrappy tips she has included in her book.

Liz Horgan said...

I'm with you--I'd love to make every quilt! And, I have enough scraps to do it! I need help with scrap ideas, so this book would come in handy!
Thanks!

Jeannine Gowdy said...

I've only ever made 1 scrap quilt - but have lots of scraps. The scraps are so different that it is hard for me to decide how to put them together, but I do love the way they look

Sue Heisler said...

Scrap quilts are my favorite! I agree with you about this book - will want to make every quilt in it and won't know where to start. One of my favorite things about scrappy quilts is how differently the same pattern turns out for everyone! It is so fun to see how scraps can be used to make beautiful quilts. Thanks!

Linda in PA said...

Both yours and Lissa scrap quilts are beautiful! I’ve always been a fan of scrap quilts and have made several. “Oh, Scrap” looks like a great book to add to my library.

Pam said...

Oh my! I love scrap quilts and this book looks like a must-have! I could never pick just one as my favorite; I guess I will just have to make them all ��

Deb Mac said...

Every picture in this book that I have seen is a quilt I want to make. I haven't been able to quilt for awhile so need something to get me back into sewing and using up fabric.

Kona kitten said...

Love the scrappy quilts in this book. The photos are lovely and truly make me want to dive into my scraps to create too

Kimberley Rose said...

The release of this book is perfect timing for me, as I've really been wanting to whittle down my scraps/stash vs. adding to it. These all look very exciting!

Lori said...

Scrappy quilts are my favorite. It is wonderful to remember the source of each piece as I sew them into the quilt.

Robyn R said...

As a relatively new quilter, I have obtained fabric from various places. Scraps from friends/family, estate and yard sales, and online clearance sales. This has left me with so many wonderful scraps! This book would be perfect!

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

I have so many scrap to use on one of these quilts.

Quilter said...


What wonderful quilts are featured in this book...Scraps are my favorite
maybe because of all the variety at your fingertips... Oh someone is
going to be so lucky to win this...
Thanks for the chance...

AZMaggie said...

Scrappy quilts are happy quilts with everyone getting along!!! Love it!

Susie Hoover said...

Scrappiness = Happiness! Absolutely love scrap quilts and I am so happy to see that Surrounded is included too.

Deb said...

I love scrap quilts. When I'm done with a few projects, I'll take the time to trim down my scraps and add them to the correct drawer. My drawers are getting full again, so it's going to be time to dig in and get a scrap quilt going.

lynn said...

Looking at those quilts is a delight! Especially the first one, in the white room -- it's beautiful (and I don't usually like the color orange!). And I always love looking at your quilts, Sherri : ) Thank you for sharing.

Amdezo said...

I love scrap quilts--and this book looks like something I really "need" as I've been following along on this blog hop. The cover quilt really makes me happy.

Carolyn said...

I am loving the quilts I've seen on this blog hop because I love scrappy quilts. They are mostly what I make, not being one to buy whole lines of fabrics or precuts. I do occasionally, but still throw in some fabrics from the stash. I definitely need to get Lissa's book!

Becky Hartley said...

I need more scraps so I can make more quilts like these! My stash is not very big yet. I always like a scrap quilt best when it is done. Sometimes putting the individual scraps together doesn't feel right, but the overall effect is much more pleasing to the eye.
This would be a great book to start my quilting library!

Kigwit said...

The scrap quilts are wonderful but Oh how I love those baby feet peeking out under the blue quilt!

janice raley said...

I'm always drawn to patterns and books on scrap quilting. Scrap quilting is what got me started quilting four years ago. I had amassed quite a collection of scraps from making and donating chemo caps.
I fell in love with quilting then and have never looked back. Lissa's book looks like a must-have because like everyone else, those scraps just keep growing!

T Holzer said...

It's been so great seeing all of Lissa's quilts because they really are so, so beautiful! One day, I hope to have half a dozen or so scrap quilts, but I'm not there yet. I am slowly working on two and I am saving fabric for another two. Thanks for this chance, Sherri.

Melanie said...

I feel inspired to sort through my scrap tote! It should only take a whole day!

Ginny said...

My favorite way to deal with scraps from a special quilt I make for others is to make a small one for ME afterwards, using most/all of the fabrics I used in the main quilt. Not the same pattern; sometimes just sewing same-size pieces together, with a simple border. It is a great way to remember a quilt that I might never see again! I just love this book, and thank you for the opportunity to win one! Ginny from Harrisburg, PA

sincerely yours said...

I love, love, love scrappy quilts and this books looks like a must-have! There's just something warm and cheery about scrap quilts; I kind of think they're my "comfort food" of quilting. And they seem to lend themselves to chain piecing better than any other quilt project. In fact, making 9-patches (or 4 patch) with "leader/and ender" squares is a great way to make a huge dent on a scrap quilt while working on other projects ... I'm always looking for ways to stop without cutting my thread. I'm so excited for the person that wins this book!

Kara said...

I have many ideas to make a scrap quilt. I just need to start quilting faster so I can get more scraps! I just started last year so I need more!!!

The Midnight Stitcher said...

Busy creating more scraps than I can keep up with, but I will tackle them. I love scrap quilts and also the rewarding feeling that those scraps didn't end up in the garbage - they made another wonderful quilt. I'll be looking for this book.

Carol G said...

I am just like you. I want to make them all! I can honestly say I have not made a scrap quilt I didn’t like. Some days I think I should cut up my entire starch and make scraps out of it. Would love this new book.

sewingmomy said...

The right book at the right time. I have been planning some stash busting!

Donna Cutting said...

Scraps quilts are full of memories, just love them. My grandma always made scrap quilts. I have one that has fabric from some of her homemade dresses. I just made a scrap quilt using left over fabric from the baby quilts that I made.
Thanks for giveaway.

Whitney M said...

This book is on my list! I need to do a scrap overhaul but have been learning to sew with what I have this last year!

cbg1 said...

This book is so inspiring. I love scrap quilts and I think I want to make every quilt shown in this book. there are at least 4-5 on my immediate to do list.

Sumac said...

Love scrap quilts as they help me with my collection of save everything!

Pam said...

Adorable quilts! would love a copy!!

gmaebe said...

I just tried to do a little more scrap organization earlier this week. I've created quite a stash of scraps. This book would hopefully inspire me to actually do something with them :) My scrap storage is almost full!

Aunt Marti said...

So many great ideas! I’m not sure I can wait until the end of the giveaway to get my hands on this book.

Elaine said...

I just made my first scrappy quilt and I love it! I think this book is a must have for me!

Margie F. said...

I agree that every quilt looks very doable & a fantastic way to use scraps. So fun!!

Jane Lewis said...

I LOVE scrap quilts! They remind me of my grandmother!

Rosalind Gutierrez said...

Enticing quilts to make from scraps. I like them as they have that made by Grama attitude. rozz01(at)cox(dot)net

WhiteEagle said...

I desperately need this book...buried in scraps and need to find my stash. HELP!

Christina said...

I love looking at scrap quilts and especially different takes on the same pattern in different color schemes. I'm just getting to the point where I might have enough scraps to make some smaller projects. I can't wait to play with the possibilities!

MaryBeth Little said...

I just love all the quilts -- so colorful and pretty.

mascanlon said...

Such fabulous quilts in this book! And I have long planned to make Surround..is that the real name?Thanks for opportunity to win. Have a great day.🙂

Bonnie and Clyde said...

I have not been a quilter long enough to have a stash of scraps, but I so want to make the quilt on the cover! Thank you for the opportunity to win a copy of the book!

Dondi Murdock said...

I can't die for decades because I have so many quilts I must make first! Now this book has come along and there are still more quilts to make! The best quilt for me is the one with all those cute toes hanging below! I have a friend who is a photographer who says each toe in a photograph is worth at least $1000. I always believe her. So imagine how much that quilt must be worth?

hekeseme said...

Love the scrap quilts! With an out of control collection of scraps these patterns would certainly help t make a dent in them! They are quilts that make me smile and feel comforted!

Julie in WA said...

Wonderful post; thanks for sharing this new book. Sometimes a scrap quilt can look uncontrollable but these quilts are so beautiful. I make stash quilts, which I think counts as scrappy! Only if I am desperate will I purchase fabric.

Sally said...

Scrap quilts are a great way to learn about color combinations and how important value is in design. Love, love scrap quilts!

Katherine McNeese said...

I grew up with scrap quilts on the bed and I love to make them today.

jec said...

Oh I hope I am a winner of this one. So many scraps and what wonderful patterns to finally be able to make them into the quilts they deserve to be. Janet. Jecagain@gmail.com

the Miles Family said...

Scrappy quilts are my favorite. I think it began when my mom bought me a really scrappy quilt at a bazaar when I was just young. I could spend hours looking at the pieces of fabric in that quilt. This looks like a wonderful book!

Hildy said...

Love scrap quilts and this book is on m wishlist!

Lisa Marie said...

I love scrap quilts! It seems that most of the quilts I make lately are scrappy. I think quilts with many different fabrics are so interesting to look at.

Jenni Hunt said...

I love using scraps and love the look of a good scrappy quilt! Sounds like such a good book!

Bamma said...

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE scrappy quilts!!
This looks like a great book and would be very interested in reading her tips.

Jayne said...

Scrappy quilts always look good. I just love them

Unknown said...

You are all such talented ladies! I would love a refresh on using the low volume fabrics...

Kelly D said...

I love the variety of colors in scrap quilts and it gives new life and purpose to all that leftover fabric.

Marie said...

Love scrap quilts. They embody the true spirit of quilting by using up every little bit.

Jackie said...

I love scrappy quilts. This book definitely looks like a great book. Thanks for the chance.

minibea12 said...

Oh Scraps has so many awesome quilts! I love to make scrap quilts! They are so colorful and "happy"!
nikilsend(at)outlook(dot)com

cathy said...

I love scrap quilts, strictly controlled to free-wheeling. This book presents lovely inspiring examples.

Marie said...

Great quilts to help make a dent in that growing pile of fabric scraps too precious to throw away.

kristen said...

I like scrap quilts because it uses up the little pieces that I can't throw away.

Lynn Houle said...

I love scrap quilts! The variety of fabrics make me smile!

Aunt Judy said...

I'm still fairly new to scrap quilting, but I love being able to use up odds and ends of fabric. And I'm always so surprised when things I'd never normally put together end up looking like they were made for each other!

Jocelyn said...

Scraps. I LOVE them! I have so many scraps, I could probably make every pattern in this book. It looks awesome. Thanks for the giveaway.

Siobhán said...

Scrappy quilts are my favorite because of the treasure trove of fabric that can’t be used. The book looks amazing and I’m in love with your American Jane quilt!

sue s said...

I'm really enjoying seeing everyone's favorites in the book! I too like Surround a lot. I may have to put it on the list.

Danette Stankovich said...

At this point, I have accumulated quite a bit of scraps. Other quilters must be having the same dilemma so Scrap Books are being printed - the more the better!

Donna~~ said...

All my quilts end up being like scrap quilts because I just keep adding more fabrics and more colors. This book looks like a must have for me.

Susan Smith said...

I have lots of scraps and love making scrap quilts! I feel like they are almost “free quilts” when I use leftovers from other projects.

Anne D said...

I keep all my scraps but at the moment I do not make a lot of scrap quilts. I must need this book to inspire me!

Judy said...

I have a treasure trove of scraps and use them every day!

Nancy Van Roekel said...

Scrap quilts are my favorite, and what I make the most. In fact, when I make a planned quilt the best part is thinking about how the scraps might fit into another quilt. I find great pleasure in using bits of fabric saved from years back, so those scrap quilts then become a memory quilt of sorts, only known by me.

Amy Morgan said...

I have never made a scrappy quilt. (I'm a little OCD and have trouble with decision making) I'm anxious to give it a try and think that this book would be a great help!

Unknown said...

The book looks amazing....the pictures of the quilts are beautiful. I often wish quilt designers would put a skill level on their designs.
A newbie like myself sees these beautiful quilts and thinks ...ohhhh, this looks hard. Maybe it is or maybe not. Thanks for sharing.

Marilyn said...

Scrap quilts are so much fun and these are just beautiful!

Kathy H said...

Beautiful quilts.i love how all of those scraps look great next to each other.

Beth said...

I love scrap quilting, because each scrap quilt brings sweet memories with it of quilts I've already made and the people I love for whom I made those other quilts.

KMSC said...

I love scrap quilts! I would say that most of my quilts are scrap quilts. The more fabrics and colors, the better! Thanks for the chance to win this amazing book.

eileen said...

Love scrap quilts, I have made 5, and planning to make another!!! Looks like a great book!

mumbird3 said...

Gorgeous - love the Surrounded quilt!! mumbird3(at)gmail(dot)com

Unknown said...

Love the scrap Quilts combined with purchased fabric. The purchased fabric ties together the scrap blocks riot of colors. Can t wait to see the entire book.

Kootenay Quilter said...

I enjoy making scrap quilts & would love to win a copy of this book. Each Blog that I have visited makes me want it even more!

Karen McMahon said...

I love making scrap quilts. Lissa’s New book will be wonderful inspiration.

Sue said...

My Aunt of 88 years gave me a HUGE bag of lifetime scraps. I am so excited to find patterns to use the tiny to bigger pieces! This book is looking perfect

mamifleur said...

Tous ces quilts avec des tissus lumineux m'enchantent§ Amitiés à vous tous

Deb said...

I love scrappy quilts and I’m working on producing more scrappy quilts myself!

Unknown said...

Scrappy quilts are like souvenirs of times and places I've been on my quilting journeys. Nostalgic and endearing. Thanks for sharing yours with us Sherri!!

Katherine said...

Love scrappy quilts! This looks like a great book!

Chris O'Dorisio said...

I have done very little scrap quilting but LOVE how it looks. I think there is more "planning" to it than I know how to do. I would love a copy of this book! Thank You!

Deborah Smith said...

I love scrap quilts for the variety of colors but more so for the warm cozy feel they bring. Nothing better then wrapping up in a scrap quilt. However, I haven't made many scrap quilts as I don't know how to put the vast variety of scraps together. The book would be a true gift!

Jusmom1 said...

I absolutely LOVE scrap quilts! To me they harken back to a simpler time when homemaking and making do were valued. All of the quilts are beautiful and I would love to win! Thank you for the chance!!!

Terrie said...

I love scrappy quilts and this book is such a inspiration!

sandi s said...

I do love scrappy quilts so much! This book looks wonderful. I always love seeing quilts you have made. Hugs,

Gmama Jane said...

Sherri,
Ironically, I came across Lissa's IG site earlier this week and saw her new book! I was not a follower before but I'm definitely one now. Her style and color choices are similar to yours, Sherri, and I've commented before how much I love love love your blog & quilt choices.
I would love to win this ebook. Why this particular book?
As a child my favorite past time was reading and coloring. My new box of 64 crayons was my most treasured school supply each fall. So, in 1987, when I discovered quilting, especially Scrappy quilting, I realized that quilting was simply "coloring" with Fabric! Fabric was my New Box of Crayola 64 Crayons!!
Bring on OH SCRAP!!

The photos remind me of sitting at my Aunt Dorothy’s as a Senior in high school. My Mom had passed away the year before. Aunt Dorothy and I cut scraps as she told me stories of my Mom and her as girls my age. The results were beautiful scrap quilts and wonderful memories.

Cynthia Knapp said...

I really like that Stairstep Quilt. Those diagonal lines really catch the eye. cknapp3626(at)sbcglobal(dot)net

Judy said...

I love scrap quilts, but I have never made one of my own. I think I'm finally reaching a point of having enough scraps to make one. I have to get this book! The quilts are stunning, and I sure could use Lissa's advice on color and value!

Teresa @ Aurea's Kitchen said...

I love sewing with my scraps. I am making one quilt right now and planning two more.

Ann Dunn said...

Lissa's book looks to be useful even if not using scraps. I like all the quilts you showed.

Dawn F said...

I really love scrap quilts and enjoy using up scraps to create more space for new ones!

Booklady said...

I have been struggling to find ways to use my scraps and precuts and Lissa's book looks like it has some excellent possibilities for me. I really like the preview you have shared with us.

DL JORDAN said...

Oh Scrap! I love scrappy quilts, about all that I put together!! And that book looks extra delicious! Pick Me!! Thanks for the opportunity

Amy DeCesare said...

I’m such a fan of scrappy quilts...new or old! They were the first quilts I fell for. Great book!

Liz said...

I love scrap quilts! The more fabrics the better. I'm excited to see this book!

Roxana Marsh said...

No matter how many scrap quilts I make, my scraps keep multiplying. Am I feeding them wrong?

Evonne Robertson said...

I just love the blue quilt and the little toes are so cute.

NancyL said...

Love the quilts, I want to make all of them, and I have lots of scraps to use up!! Looks like a great book! Thanks for the giveaway!

Nancy Chappelle said...

I love the diversity of scrap quilts. I think all the different fabrics give the quilts interest and character

I've been a quilter for well over 40 years now, and my absolute favorite has always been a scrappy quilt -- just as well, with all MY scraps! I would absolutely LOVE to have a copy of Lissa's book.....

Thank you for the opportunity to win -- am keeping my fingers crossed!

I've been working really hard at cleaning up my cutting table by turning leftovers into usable scraps. I can't wait to get my hands on Lissa's book - I, too, want to make every single one.

I love Scrap Quilts. I think they are so basic, beautiful and easily accomplished. Even a beginner can make a great scrap quilt!

Juls said...

I used to think it was hard to make a cohesive scrap quilt. Now I know better! The greater the variety, the less the odd-balls stand out :).

Alice Chown said...

Scrap quilts are so great, but when I see one I like I'm never able to wait until I have enough 'natural' scraps, I always end up buying more fabric!

I love to make scrap quilts! And I never seem to run out of scraps either! This book gives more inspiration. What I really need is more time to sew!

Renea said...

This book is going to have be in my quilting library. I have never met a scrap quilt that I did not love. I have a feeling I would be making every quilt pattern in this book. Thanks for sharing the pictures of these quilts and for the chance to make this quilt.

Can't throw it away so I love to use it

Carol Sc said...

I agree --- each quilt pictured goes on my "I want/need to make this quilt!!

I have been so interested in scrap quilting but really struggle choosing the fabrics. i can't wait to buy this book and push myself to begin!

Melanie said...

I love sewing with Scraps. This book looks awesome!!!

kirsten said...

I love all kinds of scrap quilts and love organizing the scraps by color

Lou Wotzke said...

I am a dedicated scrap quilter and another pattern.....or ten....is always welcomed.

Linda Fleming said...

The quilts are all so beautiful! I’m looking forward to seeing this book.

I love scrap quilts and tend to gravitate toward them on display. Maybe it's because I love fabric and making scrap quilts means I just have to have lots of different colors and fabrics.

Your blog is one of my top favorites and I think I will love Oh Scrap. I have tons of scraps and this book will make me look gifted!

lj Peters said...

The more I learn about this book the more excited I am.about it. Have lots of scraps to get me in the scrappy mode of quilt making! Not as experienced in that area of quilting. Thanks for the opportunity! blpeterson93@gmail.com

Scrap quilts are great for all those pieces of fabric that just don't seem to fit anywhere else. Thank you for a chance to win.

Susan P said...

I have always wanted to make a scrap quilt, but have never done so. This book looks like a great place to start. Thanks for the chance to win one.

Doreen said...

Scrap quilts are the only ones I make. When I made your Maple Skies I just used fabrics I had on hand. To me, half the fun is digging around in my scraps looking for just the right piece.

Marie Chat said...

I see many quilts in this book that are calling to me to make them next, as a quilt to make right now or at least as a leader and ender combination! This book is perfect for me as I save all my scraps to use in something else. Love following your blog and thanks!

Sandie @ crazy'boutquilts said...

I love scrappy quilts! And every pic I see of one of Lissa's quilts makes me want to make it! Thanks for the fun!

Brenda said...

As far as I can tell, the more fabrics you include in a quilt, the less likely it is that any one fabric just "doesn't go." If you have one that doesn't go, just add more scraps!

Brenda said...

I love making scrap quilts. With each quilt I have seen on the blog hop, I just want to make each one. This book would definitely be used over and over!

Liz Horgan said...

I have lots of scraps! I love to win this book that's full of beautiful ideas of how to use them!
Thanks!

ruthie said...

I love to make scrap quilts. Looks like a great book!

Farm Quilter said...

I love scrappy quilts and every pattern I have seen from the book calls to me! Since my scraps never seem to diminish (they just grow), I need this book to make more beautiful quilts with them!

JANET said...

Love scrap quilts. I always have leftover fabric from a project. When I first started out, I threw away the leftovers. There wasn't that much, but didn't have a need for it. What was I thinking???!

Angela B said...

I get really excited about scraps, it's an amazing thing to be able to create something beautiful out of left overs, an art form in its own right

dln said...

Why is it you can make a scrap quilt and end up with more scraps than when you started?!?

Camille V said...

I think scraps breed and reproduce when the lights are off in the sewing room. I never seem to get to the end of the scraps.

JanetD said...

I have loved seeing all the quilts from this book! I would so love a copy! I love scrap quilts because I feel the tie back to the women of old whose quilts were all scraps because that's all they had. And I love the feeling that scrap quilts are a quilt for free! I love to throw in as many colors as possible- the more the merrier! THanks for the opportunity to win!

lovetoquilt said...

I have a lot of scraps accumulating in my sewing room and would love to use this beautiful book to create 1, 2, 3 or more!!! Thanks for the chance to win!!

Erika Williams said...

This looks like a great book and help me use up my scraps!
