Format: Paperback
This is Deanne's second book for That Patchwork Place and the projects in this book are as delightful as those in her first one. She combines pieced projects with a touch of appliqué and gives them a country twist. Her patterns include several using star designs, as well as squares and strips. Many of the quilts can be made using pre-cuts, such as fat quarters and jelly roll strips. They would be easily adaptable in other colourways to give a fesh, modern look. Deanne includes quiltmaking instructions and provides information on appliqué.

I like it, but it left me wanting more Feb. 25 2011
By S. L. Smith - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Deanne Eisenman delivers this new book which is beautifully true to both its title "Scrap Quilts Go Country" and subtitle "Great For Precuts". Although I do not own her previous book Country-Fresh Quilts: Traditional Blocks With Floral Accents (That Patchwork Place), I must say this seems to be an improvement over that one. Each of these new 9 projects are distinct from each other (the first book used a lot of repetition across the patterns).

First Impressions:

* 9 projects, all in lovely color combinations, mostly tone-on-tone
* Very traditional styling; a little bit country, but not too primitive
* Smallest is 28x28 inches; largest is 74.5 x 74.5 inches
* Applique embellishments figure into 5 projects, mostly along outer borders
* Each different pattern tends to repeat 1 block but varies coloration to nice effect
* Lots of seams and points to match up!

Projects That Made Me Look Twice:

The quilt on the cover is "Scrappy Pinwheel Stars" and it is a very user-friendly size at 58 inches square. I like Ms. Eisenman's addition of the outer star points, for which you will need to use 2 templates.

"Checkerboard Stars" (65 3/8 inches square) features 25 variable star blocks set on point. It is perfect for fat quarters (you'll need 28) or as a way to use a full line of one manufacturer's fabrics. I have been looking for a pattern to use Moda's "Nell's Flower Shop" and I think this might be it.

"Traveling Star" (74 x 74) also uses the variable star block, but in a straight set, with an alternating flying geese block. Eisenman uses the "Folded Corner Technique" for the geese, instead of my favorite "No Waste" method of making flying geese units in blocks of 4. (With top-quality quilting cottons approaching $10 and above a yard, I'd rather waste not!) It is a lovely quilt, but it will most definitely test your ability to use and maintain a truly scant 1/4 inch seam allowance. (My tip: I use my machine's 1/4 inch foot, but click my needle over one position to the right of center.)

My favorite is "Star Wheels", the largest project at 74.5 x 74.5 inches. (You can see it with the See All Product Images feature; it is the one sprawled across a dark leather sectional sofa.) Ms. Eisenman uses a neat trick to spiff up this simple pattern which is a pseudo Split Rail design. Three 2.5 inch strips are stacked together, but the opposite ends are lopped off by a cream triangle. Very neat effect and novel use of strips.

Skill Level:

Skill levels are not provided by the author, but I would rank all of these as confident-beginner to intermediate. No curved piecing here, but you will have several opportunities to:

* Learn or improve basic applique skills
* Practice using color value
* Prove you really can do a precisely scant ¼ inch seam allowance (check out my tip above)

What sets this book apart from all the rest? Why only 4 stars?

Well, therein lies the rub. This is a NICE book, and I LIKE all 9 projects. I just don't LOVE it, and it leaves me wanting more than the 9 projects here. In fact, it reminds me SO much of Kim Diehl's style in her "Simple" series, but with fewer projects. Of course, that being said, if you like any of Kim Diehl's books, you will most likely enjoy this book very much.

Errata Discovered So Far:

I wanted to take a peak at the author's own website for her Snuggles Quilts patterns and used the URL as written on the last "About The Author" page. The correct URL should include the extra plural "s" for Snuggles, not the singular version as published on that page.

Bottom Line:

Buy worthy? Yes, if you can afford a bit extra for a book with only 9 projects. Just try to get it on Amazon before their price goes up.

Country Fun March 3 2011
By Sarah M. Bisel - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book offers 9 different patterns for you to satisfy your country quilt whims. Each quilt is easy to make, and great for your precut fabrics. The quilts that feature applique have just enough applique to satisfy your urge to handstitch, but you won't be handstitching for the next 2 years just to finish! (of course, you can always machine applique too). If you are a country girl, you will love the quilts in this book!

Review of Scrap Quilts Go Country by Deanne Eisenmann - by Maria Hrabovsky for The Quilt Pattern Magazine [...]

It truly is great for using up all of your precut fat quarters and jelly rolls (2 1/2" strips). I love the combination of pieced patterns and appliqué! To me, it's the perfect marriage. See what I mean with Scrappy Pinwheel Stars, featured on the front cover, and below, one of my favourite patterns from the book, Star of Freedom.

This book includes nine new designs, all of which are star patterns. Along with others, you'll find: Blooming Stars, Star Trellis, Checkerboard Stars, Star Wheels, Star Chain, Travelling Star, and Star Maze, each very different from the other.

Quilt sizes range from 28 x 28 inches (Star of Freedom) to 74.5 x 74.5 inches (Star Chain).

Eight pages of quiltmaking tips start the book. They include colour basics, prewashing fabrics, rotary cutting, machine piecing, making HSTs, adding triangles to corners of squares, making strip sets, pressing, appliqué, making bias stems, making border strips, finishing techniques, quilting, and binding. All very useful and helpful information, especially for beginners.

Pattern directions are complete and well-illustrated. Appliqué patterns are all full-sized. No enlarging needed!There are two, full-colour pictures of each quilt, one that gives a full view, and one that is artfully arranged on bed, wall, sofa, or table. Very helpful indeed!

Love stars? Love Country? Love using up your scraps and stash? Then purchase this book!
just not into country Jan. 30 2012
By Jennifer Kooy Zoeterman - Published on
Format: Paperback
Do you have a collection of fat quarters and fat eighths? The nine quilts in this book will help you bust that stash. Much of the yardages use these. Most of the projects are lap size, not difficult to piece, some with applique. Only one pattern uses templates. All the quilts are shown in country colors, with primitive-looking applique.
