I’m super excited to post today about Kim Brackett’s recent book, Scrap-Basket Sensations: More Great Quilts from 2 ½″ Strips . Scrap-Basket Sensations is Kim’s second book (her first book was Scrap-Basket Surprises: 18 Quilts from 2-½ inch Strips (That Patchwork Place), and both books are published by Martingale & Company. (Along with introducing you to the book I get to give away a copy)!!!
As you can see, I’ve already started on the cover quilt, “Picnic!” I plan on using fabric from Central Park along with some scraps from my stash. The blocks have been easy to piece and go together quickly. This has been a fun quilt to work on…you can’t finish a block without wanting to start another!
Next on my list is “Over and Under.” I’m planning to make this quilt with Amy Butler fabrics! One thing I love about all the quilts in Kim’s book is the little box titled “Cutting from Scraps” at the start of each pattern. Kim let’s you know exactly how many pieces you need if you’d like to make the quilt from scraps rather than using jelly rolls (of course, she also gives directions for using pre-cut jelly roll strips which really saves on cutting time).
I had a few questions for Kim which she kindly answered for my stop on the tour…
Me: Which comes first, the fabric or the design?
Kim: The design always comes first. I don’t have enough confidence to cut into fabric without a plan!
Me: How do you sketch your designs–graph paper or computer or by playing around with the fabric?
Kim: I enjoy playing with Electric Quilt software to draw the blocks, then trying out different arrangements to see what happens. Sometimes adding different elements, such as a pieced sashing or an alternate block, reveals a totally different design that I would never have imagined. As I “color” the design with fabrics, I keep in mind different fabric collections I’d like to use, or a color scheme that I like.
Me: What is your favorite block?
Kim: My favorite block is Scrap-Basket Paddlewheel. It was one of those “accidental” designs, and it was really fun to make. The sample quilt was made from scraps of fabrics from some of my favorite Moda designers (some of the fabrics going back to the 90s!).
Me: Do you have a favorite quilt in the book?
Kim:It’s impossible for me to choose a favorite — each one is special to me for different reasons. My favorite quilt to work on was Bali Breeze. I enjoyed piecing it (no points to match!), and I enjoyed working with all the beautiful batik fabrics.
Me: Do you have a favorite quilting “tip” to share?
Kim: You don’t have to use every strip in a Jelly Roll or Bali Pop. Sometimes I use the darkest strips with a single light background fabric, saving the lighter strips for a future project. I also like to mix and match fabric collections to create a “scrappier” look. Some of my favorite quilts you’ve shared on your blog, Sherri, are the ones that combine different fabric collections. As a lover of scrap quilts, the more fabrics I can squeeze in, the better!
(The quilt above is “Scrap-Basket Paddle Wheel,” which contains the block Kim mentioned as her favorite)!
I’d really like to thank Kim for the inspiration she shares through her books and her blog–she’s just amazing! I remember leaving a comment with a question on Kim’s blog over a year ago, and she took the time to not only fully answer my question but also to give me some great ideas and insights…I’ve always appreciated and remembered that! I know you’ll love this book AND be inspired to create your own “Scrap-Basket Sensations!
Be sure to stop by all of these blogs for their day on the tour (tomorrow’s stop is with Mary)…and leave a comment on this post if you’d like to win a copy of Kim’s book!

Quilt Azubi says
Sherri, thanks for sharing your thoughts! :))
greetings from germany
I would love to win a copy of the book Sherri. Love the Central Park Picnic Quilt and FYI I am busy with my first jelly roll quilt myself (using Amy Butler's Daisy Chain) like your next one!
The first time I have ever made flying geese blocks – if you get a chance you can check out my progress so far on my blog.
This looks like a really great book. I like that she gives instructions for using scraps from stash as well as jelly rolls, and I enjoyed reading your interview with the author.
I would love to a book like this ;-))
This book seems to be a "must have". Great Quilt today with that ocean colours.
Kind regards Gabi (from Germany)
I have Kim's first book and I love it so the chance to win this one is wonderful…
Speaking many languages all at the same time! says
I love the thought of using jelly rolls for this. I just learned about them and realize how much of a time saver they are. I live in Europe full time so I don't get to go to JoAnn or other quilt fabric stores. When I saw these on a visit in August, I thought – whatever are these for… that was one of those "duh" moments. Now I know! Love your blog!
I have Kim's first book and I love it. The second one looks like "a must" for scrap lovers (like myself) too. Love your blog too and your first day of blog tour is wonderful.

I love Kim's tip about using only those strips in a jelly roll that work with the project plus adding from other collections. I love scrap quilts, but sometimes get locked in thinking I can only use fabrics from one fabric line. I'm truly excited about this book. There are several quilts that have sparked my interest. Take care!
I would love to a book like this
Lovely projects. Sounds like a great book.

This looks like a fun book. The first one certainly was. I love scrap quilts made with 2-1/2" strips.Thanks for the give-away!
I'd LOVE to win a copy of the book. Especially after learning that Kim gives information about how to cut from scraps – I often prefer to choose my own fabrics rather than using a pre-set "collection" Thanks for sharing!
I love jelly rolls and scrap quilts. This book looks wonderful.
You mentioned something I really like about Kim's books and that is the directions both for using jelly rolls and also for just scraps. Makes it quite easy to use her patterns….which are fun and inspiring! Love to see that she has written more for us 🙂
Vickie E says
I am super excited to see this book! Can't wait to get my copy…and I am with you on Over Under quilt..want to make that too!

This book looks great!
Thanks for the giveaway, can't wait to start a quilt or two!
Take care, Leslie
These designs are DIVINE!!!
This is my first ever comment on a blog site. I very much enjoy making scrap quilts. It is very rewarding to see a lovely quilt made from left over pieces. The quilts in the book look like they would be fun to construct.

I would love a chance to win this wonderful book! The quilts look like they would be fun to make!
I like the idea of listing how many of what scraps I need to finish a quilt. I can work from what I already have, and still make a beautiful quilt. How exciting!
Great book. I'm going to have to get this one. I have lots of scraps and few ideas on what to do with them.
Love the quilt you showed. A scrappy book is a "must" in everyone's library. Thanks so much.
Ahhh you know how much I love scrappy quilts… I would be crazy if I wouldn't try to win this wonderful book… ;0)

I have a few jelly rolls here just waiting for this book!!! Loved your interview with Kim, nice to have some insight into how she creates.
I would love the chance to win this book
Pretty quilt you're making! Love Kim's brain–she does such a great job of making shortcuts for fast piecing, even if the quilts do have lots of pieces! I agree, the "cutting from scraps" is valuable. I'm making a Kitchen Sink Quilt from the first book from scraps just now and would love to win the new book!
I have a Neptune jelly roll that I've been saving because I can't find a pattern I love. Maybe there is one in this book!

Heather A says
I just got my first jelly roll and I don't have a plan. This book would surely inspire me to try something with it. Thanks for your jelly roll tips, too. Even though it might seem obvious, it's good to have someone say "you don't have to use all of them in one quilt". It reminds me to really look at each piece. Thanks!
So enjoyed your questions and answer with Kim. I loved her idea of using different lines in creating scrappy quilts. I really enjoy the scrappy look but, just haven't dared to start one, but I think I will now.
I just discovered jelly rolls, and as a new quilter think they are da bomb. I would love the chance to use more of them making some fun quilts.
What an awesome looking book. I would love to win this one. Thanks so much for the chance!
Frog Quilter says
