A Wonderful New Book of Ideas

For those of you who love scrappy quilts but are a bit afraid of making them, I'd like to recommend a book that contains patterns for what many quilters term controlled scrappy quilts. I am not receiving compensation for this review; I just love the book!

Dupre, Mickey.  Half-Scrap Quilts: Take and Make Them Yours. Paducah, KY: AQS, 2015.

Author Mickey Dupre has created a beautiful collection of patterns she calls Half-Scrap Quilts: Take and Make Them Yours. While scrappy, these include a few constant fabrics--something that will certainly be welcomed by those who prefer controlled scrappy quilts. The "Make Them Your Own" idea is exemplified by the suggestions the author gives on alternate fabrics and arrangements.

The patterns range from beginner to advanced levels, and the instructions are thorough and clear. The book is beautifully produced: full-color with clearly formatted pages.

Each quilt has a story, and in the introduction, we learn the author's personal story of her journey in this type of quilting.

You can see pictures of the included quilts on Ms. Dupre's website here: Half-Scrap Quilts
This lovely book can be ordered from her website as well.

Her book was also featured on Bonnie Hunter's blog (though the giveaway mentioned on the site is over--sorry!): Half-Scrap Quilts on Quiltville.

Christmas is coming! Someone on your list would probably love a copy of this treasure of beautiful patterns . . . or maybe, you will want to ask Santa for a copy of your own.
