From the bestselling author of Flower Festival (Kim Schaeffer), a collection of 23 quilting projects for all skill levels that can complement any décor. In this book, you will find a collection of scrappy, pieced projects to decorate your home. There are lap quilts, wall quilts, table runners, and placemats. All of the projects are made from just two simple shapes—the square and the rectangle—with no tricky measurements or stretchy bias edges. Whether you are a beginning or a seasoned quilter who wants something quick and easy, there are projects suitable for your skill level. Although I am known best for my appliqué designs, I started out doing pieced quilts, which I still love. Piecing is really the foundation of all quilt making, an integral building block to more advanced skills. The designs are basic and very versatile. The patterns adapt easily to your style preference, whether it be classic and traditional or more contemporary. Your color and fabric choices will determine your particular style. Most of my quilts are very scrappy; in general, the more fabrics I use, the more I like the quilt. Although the quilts are scrappy, they are not completely unplanned. Many of the quilts offer a great opportunity to utilize your stash. However, I must confess—I do buy “scraps.” If I don't have enough of what I want for a particular project, I buy it.
