This book really impressed me. I love scrap quilts and I would like to make every one of the eighteen quilts. All the projects from 2 1/2" strips are made from rectangles and squares, using just two methods: folded corner units and split units. The names may not be familiar to some, but they are so easy to sew. There are good sections on cutting and storing strips from scraps, stash yardage, and jelly rolls. All the quilts are pleasing and look much more complicated than they are. I will never cut a fabric again without cutting a 2 1/2" strip first. I know many of you already do this, so you are halfway there. I am even going to start looking at jelly rolls, which I never could figure out how to use! Now I want her first book, Scrap-Basket Surprises. A keeper! --Stick Your Nose in a Book: Quilting Book Reviews by Jennifer Zoeterman
