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 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.

Scrap Republic is a very good book for those who have a lot of scraps left over from quilt projects, which I do. The first few pages were inspiring to assemble and size, workable pieces of fabric. Most quilts in book are 30"x30" which gave me great ideas especially for baby quilts. There are patterns of each that are for the "Scrapless", Those of you who have not accumulated scraps. All patterns are pretty and though detailed, they are easy, even for a confident beginner. If you don't prefer a colorful quilt, then just change it up with your colors, because the quilts in this book are very colorful!

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.

There are lots of books out there that will tell you what to do with your scraps. While this one doesn't break new ground, it is mostly focused on projects, and those projects are GORGEOUS. It is very inspiring, the author's color and design sense is great. And with only a handful of projects in the book, it doesn't become another "wishing" book, that overwhelms you with techniques and theory. Just fun, pretty, practical stash-busters.

Another great quilting book by Emily Cier. Like her first book Quilt Remix: Spin Traditional Favorites into 10 Fresh Projects, the quilts are beautifully photographed and the instructions well illustrated. Emily's friendly writing style invites quilters to take risks while quietly teaching color theory. Can't wait to raid the scrap basket and get started!
