5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful variety of projects Oct. 30 2011
This book uses 2 1/2" strips to make a variety of quilts. While you can purchase pre-cut strips, Kim also offers advice on cutting and storing your own strips from scrap fabrics. I loved all the projects in this book and was surprised that so many different looks can be achieved by using 2 1/2" strips of fabric. There are stars, flowers and lattice designs, as well as several original looks. Kim uses folded corner units to achieve many of these designs and includes basic information about quilting as well as information on her techniques in the book. I appreciated the various fabric types that she used in her projects, ensuring that the quilts will appeal to a wide range of quilters.

This is a good book to use up your scraps.I just wish I had more variety in my scraps, but charm squares or mini charm squares is a good way to add variety to your scrap basket. I haven't tried making any of the quilts yet but they look easy to do. I had this book on loan from my quilt guild and was impressed enough with it that I had to add one to my collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must-Have Book Jan. 26 2011
By Sherri - Published on
Scrap-Basket Sensations is a must have quilt book. I love each and every pattern! The directions are wonderful in that they include not only directions for using pre-cut strips but also give directions and ideas for how to use your scraps to make these wonderful quilts. The patterns are wonderful for modern and traditional fabrics, and truly are sensational! I also have the author's first quilt book, and it is wonderful as well!

4.0 out of 5 stars 2.5 out of 3 ! Yes it is that good! Feb. 9 2011
By S. Geen - Published on
Scrap-Basket Sensations embraces the use of 2  inch scrap strips. Kim Brackett had been collecting them for some time and began stitching them into new designs. This book reflects her taste and her attention to detail. Take her Town Square, nothing square about it, although it looks complicated, the simplicity and well illustrated block design makes for a superb quilt. She will have readers eager to select their strips for this engaging piece.
Looking to use all your pink strips, Flowers for Nana Girl is a must. A pinwheel design with an additional leaf in the borders will be a perfect choice for Mother's Day, young lady heading to College or anyone celebrating a summer birthday. A perfect throw that would no doubt be embraced by anyone who loves flowers.
Are you passionate about green, especially bright hues, do you love working with large blocks? Over and Under will no doubt be one that will be added to your to do list. Again Kim's vision spills out onto the page with easy to follow instructions, 18 new designs to choose from and engaging crisp photos. This is an ideal gift for someone seeking quilt inspiration in anything from light to dark quilt designs.

I loved Kim's first first book and was looking forward to receiving this one. I was not disappointed. The quilts are unique and beautiful. Kim makes a one or 2 block quilt look more difficult and complicated than it actually is. Her instructions are clear and well illustrated. I especially like the Island Chain quilt and am making it for my father. It is an extremely clever and well thought out design. I showed the book to the owner of my local quilt store. She liked it so much that she is going to order it for the shop. I highly recommend both of Kim's Scrap Basket quilt books.

5.0 out of 5 stars AWESOME April 23 2011

I couldn't wait to get the new Scrap Basket Sensations book by Kim Bracket because I have made several quilts from Scrap Basket Surprises (and have several more already cut and ready to sew) and wondered if this second book could be as good as the first. Turns out, it is-the author turns out the nicest patterns using 2.5" strips and the illustrations are just beautiful of the patterns. Several of these patterns even look like they lend themselves as men's quilt patterns which is great and rare to find. She even gives suggestions of using different colorways for the patterns. I have been unable to find her book at my LQS, and was really glad to find it on AMAZON for such a great price. I just have one problem with the book-which pattern I will make first.

5.0 out of 5 stars Scrap Basket Sensations is a sensation! April 8 2011
By Natalie & Buddy - Published on
Martingale & Company always produces a quality product. This is a book that you can proudly give as a gift, and a book that you will be proud to have in your library. I say that, because there are so many different projects in this book, that you will refer to it again and again.
This is precise, great basic quilting directions, but even greater project directions.
Yes, precuts are everywhere. But aren't you happy when you find a pattern that gives directions for yardage and precuts?
Aren't you pleased to find that a very striking quilt is actually made from very simple blocks combined in a unique way?
I can tell you from my own personal experience making these projects - you can do it!!

Thank you, Kim Brackett. Thank you That Patchwork Place. Thank you Martingale & Company.
