Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

Leave the math to Sally! Quilting expert Sally Schneider presents 10 scrappy quilts, each in multiple sizes--and she does the calculations for you. Learn her scrap-quilt techniques and more.

About the Author

Sally Schneider has been quilting since 1971, when she started making quilts for her children and for friends who were having babies. Since then, she has lost count of the number of quilts she has made. Suffice it to say that none of her children or grandchildren will ever be cold at night. She has lived all over the world, but now she calls Albuquerque, New Mexico, home.



When Sally's not quilting, she enjoys landscape photography, singing in her church choir, and visiting her grandchildren.

This is the third book I've bought by Sally Schneider. She has made "scraps" an elegantly PC term. Quilts Fit for a Queen shows off Schneider's wonderful color sense and her ability to create a perfectly balanced layout. Traditional blocks become extraordinary in her hands. Here, classic blocks (mostly stars) are integrated with clever sashings and secondary blocks, all punched up with color for a beautiful collection of 10 projects.

An example of her skills is "Farmer's Daughter". Schneider uses unusually vivid fabrics, adding a 4-point star as the cornerstone. These 2 blocks are then set within a near-"Burgoyne Surrounded" sashing, and the result is phenomenal. I particularly like the detail of her instructions for that 4-point star; I've tried to make this many times, but always got it wrong and the seams unmatchable. Her close-ups and freezer-paper method will most definitely create an accurate block.

The quilt on the cover is "Merry-go-Round". Its straight-forward appearance belies its intricate construction. This is a bit of a mind-bender in that each completed block also contains one quarter of an adjacent block; it will require careful (but fun) planning and looking ahead. I love this type of design for its economy and wiliness; it's almost like cheating, but with permission to do so. And if you make a mistake and mismatch those corner quarters, you can argue that you're just making a scrappy quilt even scrappier!

Some projects include cutting layouts so you'll get the most mileage from your scraps. And true to the book's title, 9 of the 10 projects have cutting grids for 4 different sizes, with an illustration for each. ("Maple Star" has options for only twin and king.

Sally Schneider's designs are great. Her idea of "scrappy" is just what I was looking for. Her way of putting color together is always cohesive and pleasant. My eyes have a place to rest, yet the quilt is active. There are at least 4 in this book that I want to make. This is the second book of her that I have purchased and I will buy more, anytime!!!

Love this book! I have a lot of leftover fabric from previous creations and the book is loaded with fabulous designs to actually use them up and not run to quilt shop to buy more to go with my scraps.

I love this book - it's perfect for scrap quilts and there's no guessing on how many blocks to make for whatever size you want to make! It's all laid out for you so it's easy!

Ditto everything S.L.Smith said. I have been a Sally Schneider fan ever since she lived in Washington and had her first book, (I think) Scrap Happy published in 1990. Scrap Quilts Fit for a Queen Or a King, Twin, or Lap! may be her best book yet. The quilts are all gorgeous, and I'd like one of each. Sally has a wonderful way with the scrap look, and she is also great with settings and borders. I took a workshop with her long ago, and she showed me how the way I wanted to simplify the corners of the borders would lose the whole look. One of the features I really like about this latest book is that she has done all the math for us of making the quilts in the size we want. I make a lot of lap size quilts for veterans, and I love that I can start cutting and sewing without having to do a lot of calculations. If you love traditional quilts, you should own this book. (And all her previous books.)

I have been quilting for several years and have accumulated quite a fabric stash. I have not seen many scrap quilt patterns that I like until I found this book. Sally Schneider's guide to color and her thoughtful approach to scrap quilting is just what I needed. All the quilts in this book
are well planned and beautiful. The instructions are clear and concise for every stage of making the quilt tops. There is a project for everyone from beginner to advanced and most will be able to go right to their stash and get started.
