Another New Book

How can I resist Judy Martin? Her stuff is great! Scraps is Judy’s latest book and I think this is the answer to my comment in a recent post about Knockout Blocks and Sampler Quilts, Martin’s previous book. Scraps is a project book. Many of the blocks used in the quilts seem to come from Knockout Blocks and Sampler Quilts, especially noticable in Cooperstown Stars. She has patterns for every skill level and the directions seem to be clear and well illustrated. Though I dislike sections on “how to make a quilt”, Judy’s is very well done and I often read this section in her various books, because I always seem to learn something. Three-of-a-Kind is similar to a free Block of the Moment on Judy’s website called Celtic Squares. She has great BOMs and I keep them all for future when I have skads of spare time.

  1. WOW! she has got some AMAZING quilts in that book! some of them look way beyond where i’ll ever EVER be, but others look like maybe, just maybe, i could do it. trés cool!

  2. Yes, she really does wonderful quilts. Original, but not so weird as to think that you could never do it. Check out her rotary cutitng book and you will certainly be able to do what she does. Of course, your kidlets are sucking up brain power, so perhaps when they are both in school… 😉
