More About the Author

Emily Cier has had a lifelong love of fine art and art history, and a background in graphic design. These passions finally found a common ground in quilting, which she quickly discovered to be a wonderful and timeless creative outlet as well as one filled with a rich history. It also keeps one quite toasty on a cold, rainy day.

Emily lives in Seattle with her husband and two beautiful children (who are showing their own penchant for creativity).

A refreshing approach to modern scrap quilting. If you love color & simply can't bear to toss out those beautiful bits of extra fabric this is the book for you. Nothing too difficult to tackle technically since the book focuses more on providing a recipe for color & design rather than worry about sewing techniques. Any quilter interested in stepping away from traditional patterns will enjoy this approach. Whether your interested in a weekend project or a larger quilt "Scrap Republic" is a delightful study in color & design. So dig out those scraps and don't be afraid to play! This would be a fun addition to any quilters library. I look forward to checking out Ms Cier's first book "Quilt Remix" Enjoy!

I just bought this book for myself, and am sending another copy to my quilting sister-in-law. I also have Emily's first book, Quilting Remix; I love her sense of color, shape and the unusual geometry of her patterns. Clear, easy to understand instructions.

I like this book very much. It is a quilt project book containing 8 projects with some basic technique instructions. Ms. Cier gives instructions for making the projects from your own scraps and also from yardage in case you don't have a stash of scraps. The quilts in this book are very modern, colorful and scrappy. Some of the quilts in this book can be tackled by a beginner quilter, but others would require knowledge of techniques beyond the scope of this book, such as different methods of applique. While I may not make any of the quilts in the book, I will refer to it often for inspiration.

I like all the quilts in this book made from scrap materials. They look great. I had two friends who asked that I get them each a copy. The techniques are easy, and the quilts look great. Best of all you can use the leftover material you love, but don't want to get rid of.

This is a great book for anyone in love with rainbows and scrappy. Great designs. Beautiful eye candy. And she shows you how to make with a less scrappy look. Fun easy patterns.

I have been sewing and quilting for years and was looking for a fresh take on my quilting projects. I found Emily Cier's projects and directions a great starting point for a new take on my work. There are two quilts in this book that i am definitely going to make down the road. Her directions can be easily customized for your own unique look. Good solid resource.

I am always looking for new ideas. This book had none. Everything here has been seen before. I was disappointed

I liked this book from the first page. Although some of the ways of using scraps I had seen before the author has presented them in a way that makes all projects in this book achievable. This book will appeal to all lovers of quilting whether you like the traditional or you are a modern quilter. Emily starts the reader with ways of organising your scraps, trying different types of blocks through to how to quilt and bind your project. It is easy to see the author has had a background in fine art with the way she shows the reader how to use colour and contrast. I perfect book for the quilters library that I know I will refer to often.
