Descripción del producto
June 12 elebrate 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 * Feb 12 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 *

Thanks for a great book. Highly recommended.
I have made many blocks in the years I had been contributing to group quilts at my church, so I have done a few labor intense blocks but never more than 8-10 of a single block. And yes,those blocks required extreme accuracy as all quilts should~
What do I like about this book?? It makes quilting look like FUN! I do not have many scraps, ( lol I DO have a yarn stash tho does that count?) so I may have to purchase things along the way for me to complete some of these quilts
and it is always fun to shop for new fabrics!
The positives in this book are that they show one can play w/ fabrics , have fun and not take the quilting SO seriously that it ceases to be a fun activity,,,this is a HUGE positive for me b/c that is the very reason I never took to quilting even though I have sewn for 30 yrs~
I like the "modern" quilt(w/o boarders etc) but I wonder if it really is" modern"??
The reason is that my grandmother and mother used every bit of scrap fabric they could find to make quilts They didn't have larger pieces to use for borders or the back so this is certainly not a new thought, but a throwback to the frugality of past generations,
I am pleased to see that this is making a come back in a throw away society~
Perhaps we should take note of the words, " Waste not,, Want not" as many were taught in our formative years~
A lot of people toss small pieces of anything out, which is a shame b/c beautiful quilts can be made from those old scraps as evidenced in this book~
I just inherited a 70 yr old straight stitch sewing machine that no one in the family wanted, I would like to take that in to get a good work up and see how that stitches vs my very modern uber computerized machine
( I wonder how many garments. quilts or alterations were made on that machine,,,,)
I have a quilt in my guest room that is probably 50 plus years old that has a pieced back because that is what they did in those days. It is used by guests in our home and well loved.
I call this book a " permission" to play book,,,,and while I still love accuracy,,( and the authors do not sacrifice it at all!) I feel like I can get ideas how to make pretty USABLE quilts that will snuggle children and warm us in winter w/o making a ton of intricate stars or triangles.
I will never be a quilter that goes for the blue ribbon at the State Fair, and while I do admire the work and beauty in them,,,,I just want to have some fun w/ fabric, relax and sew,,and not take this so seriously that it gives me a major headache or has me looking to pour a glass of wine each time I sew.
I sent the 2 quilts tops I sewed out to a shop to be quilted, so that is my level of quilting at present~
I would really like to learn to use my walking foot on my new machine to quilt and save myself a lot of money there also!
This is just fun book to own, and I think I will be making a few quilts from this book even though I really do not have many scraps~ I am going to have fun w/ fabric and play!
One more thing,, the part about sorting your scraps,,,,,,,umm,,,ok , here is the truth~
I sort my leftover yarns in color coded baskets so this is not such a novel idea, its just practical to do
but I will give this book 5 starts b/c of the ideas it gives me to just have a fun and relaxed time quilting~ because there is absolutely everything to like about this method and mindset, I wish I would have seen this years ago!
So overall, I would give the book a four stars based on Cheryl's quilts, directions, and methods. If Amanda's designs and methods were of the same quality, the book would have been a 5.
As a side note: I have signed up to take a class on Craftsy with Cheryl because I admire her work based on this book.
