A Great Read

It's been a long since since I've been able to 
sit, look at and read through a new book.

When I got home on Friday 
I had this waiting for me.

I had seen the book on line recommended by someone,
sorry I forget who,
and bought it sight unseen.

And I am so happy I did!

The over 20 quilt projects in this book
 are beautiful with
a creative scrappy twist.
Linda's recipes for turning scraps into spectacular quilts
is a delightful and informative read.

Her practical down to earth approach is
refreshing and doable.

Her stories and advice make this a must have book.
I would love to start with quilt #1 and just
keep going.
 Of course, books published by Quiltmania
are phenomenal because of their quality 
of photography, layout, and yes, the book
is also written in French along side the English.
It makes you feel so global!

It's been a very long time since I've written a book report
If you  love scrap quilts, 
If you love antique quilts
If you love making antique reproductions
and have a ton of fabric,

Scrap Quilts (mania) 
by Linda Koenig
 definitely needs to be on your list
"must haves".

 Until Next Time-


  1. this looks like a must have book for me!

  2. Oooo! I haven't heard about this one before - sure looks like a good one! Are there any small quilts included?

  3. That is high praise; I'm going to check it out. The pictures you've shown are so enticing!

  4. Maybe it was on my blog...I blogged about this book a couple of weeks ago...don't you just love it?? Enjoy!!

  5. Looks like another Quilt Mania winner!

  6. I don't quilt (sadly) but I think I'd like to have this book just to stare at the lovely photos!
