Successful Scrap Quilts from Simple Rectangles

Successful Scrap Quilts from Simple Judy Turner & Margaret Rolfe

It always amazes me how you can take a simple shape & build an entire quilt collection rich in color, pattern & design based solely on one particular shape.

This book concentrates on the rectangle, So how versatile is the rectangle?
You will be amazed!  This book really got my creative juices flowing!

You will find a section on color theory & using key elements to achieve your desired result.
Then there is a section on designs using rectangles, individual blocks and their reoccurring patterns when placed in a variety of block layouts. 
I found this extremely exciting & helpful in designing my own creations.

Then you move on to the project section where block construction is covered as well as quilt construction, then lastly the specific quilt projects designed to make a completed quilt from a particular design.  There are 15 projects in the book & a million more from your own creation. 

Take a look at this book as a foundation for your quilting library.
