Product Description

Review

Sunday Morning Quilts shows you how to use every last scrap of treasured fabric in your collection. In sixteen new and delightful projects, the book champions the original ethos behind patchwork—make do and mend. However, the quilts in the book are decidedly modern in design, construction, fabric choice and colour. The quilts are mostly made from what would normally be seen as leftovers, i.e. any piece of fabric less than a 1/4 yard in size. Careful attention is paid to the need to sort your scraps before embarking on a scrappy quilt: in fact, preparation and quilting/binding basics take up almost half the book before the projects begin. The projects are then organized so that you can take advantage of your scraps from the largest pieces to the smallest. This is to encourage you to work through your oddments in a systematic manner and eventually end up with no scraps at all, and then you have the perfect excuse to buy lots more gorgeous fabric. The first project is a lovely idea to get your preparation started—quilted storage boxes in rainbow colours to organize all your scraps! The quilts are bold, bright and clean, and the co-authors actively encourage you to be creative and to come up with your own designs. (Popular Patchwork Magazine, February 2012)

Celebrate great fabric by using every scrap-this is the premise behind Sunday Morning Quilts. Modern quilters Amanda Jean Nyberg and Cheryl Arkison share a passion for scraps. From sorting to piecing to finishing, this book will help you turn your treasured leftovers into a modern quilt with your own Sunday-morning style. (Stitch, 06/26/12)

Sunday Morning Quilts, by Amanda Jean Nyberg and Cheryl Arkison, is so lovely—but my favorite part is the way it really challenges you to think about your scraps and how to use them. The simple fact that Amanda Jean uses every. single. scrap. of fabric makes me want to be even more ridiculously frugal than I already am—and to figure out where I put the box that has my existing scrap projects in it so I can get them completed. I organize my scraps a little differently than they suggest in the book–I have specific projects in mind and add scraps to those project baskets as I work—but I really like the way they’ve defined various sizes of scrap and used those to create some really great modern projects. Plus, there’s a whole idea of working with a scrap 'slab' in the book that gets the gears working in my brain, imagining how those slabs could be composed and work together to create something I haven’t seen before. The photography in this book is exceptionally good, and the use of pyramids in the Nap Like an Egyptian quilt is downright inspired. (whipstitchfabrics.com, July 11, 2012)

If you haven't picked up this book yet, you really should. I think I love every single pattern in there. So many I want to make, so little time! (There aren't many books out there I can say that about.) In fact, it was difficult to choose just one for this post. Fortunately, this quilt is going to be a wedding gift, so I ended up choosing the one I thought the happy couple would like the most and started gleefully chopping up my scraps. I followed the pattern in the book to a T, and that's rare for me these days. (Another sign of how much I like this book!) I stuck with the three-color-scheme of the original quilt (although I used a different trio of colors), I cut all my string scraps to the sizes from the book, and I even quilted it the same as the original, with wavy lines going in the opposite direction of the strings. The result is a fabulous scrap quilt that's still modern and not overwhelming scrappy. : ) I pretty much cleared out my gray scrap bin on this one—in fact, I even had to supplement a bit from my stash. And this was such a fun, low-pressure project to sew. Sewing strings together in this way is low-key and doesn't require a whole lot of thought or concentration, and that's exactly the kind of project I needed last week. (freshlypieced.blogspot.com, 10/03/12)

Get ideas and inspiration to organize (and use) fabric scraps. Give bits and snippets new life by stitching them together to create stunning modern, scrappy quilts. (Quilts & More, 11/1/12)

I am so happy with this book. I admire both of the quilters who wrote it, and wanted to have their book in my "book stash". Within days of receiving it, I used a couple of the techniques detailed in the book. It's well-written, and easy to follow. I highly recommend it!

Received my copy of this book today. I follow both these women via their quilting blogs and have been anxiously awaiting their book. It does not disappoint and even exceeds the expectations I had.

This book includes some terrific ideas both for new quilts using my existing scraps, but also for sorting and organizing them. This is something I've meant to do but haven't gotten to ... now, it's a priority (when I get time!).

I love the ideas for all my scraps! Now I won't have anything left over that will not have a purpose!!! I'm looking forward to knitting a floor mat with my strip scraps.

The book is loaded with great design ideas and suggestions for using up scraps left over from other quilting projects. Techniques and instructions are well explained - good for novice quilters as well as those with more advanced quilting skills.

Borrowed this book from the library and loved everything in it. Then decided to buy it because photocoping the whole book would be nuts. Recommended this book to my quilting friends. Actually used her idea to re-sort and organize my sewing room, everything flows now and just makes sense.
