This book is yet another book to be added to your 'must have' quilting books. Like many of her other books, this one is destined to become a classic. Get it whether you're are just starting to quilt, or even if you're a pro. This one has it all!

In a real tour de force, the quilt designs range from traditional-looking to the most innovative and contemporary. It's hard to believe one person designed all of these quilts. Judy Martin has proven she deserves to be called 'Queen of Scrap Quilts.' This book truly has something for every quilter.

This book has so much information for everyone, from beginner to experienced quilters. I have been quilting for many years, and I found new information here. A friend that makes award-winning quilts was looking through my copy of Scraps on the way to the Paducah quilt show. She said several times "There is so much information in here!" Judy provides practical tips that make working with scrap quilts very manageable and fun. Especially fun in this book are the patterns with shadows. So unique! I am so glad I succumbed to buying "one more book" to add to my library. If you have a fabric stash, or want to know how to build a usable fabric stash, and want to know what to do with it that will WOW! your guild, this is it.

I just received your new book, Scraps, and I LOVE IT. I like the fact that you have 1 or 2 beginner level quilts in there just for the times that I have to get something done on a much shorter time frame.

Thank you for the new book, Scraps. It’s obvious that you put a lot of thoughtfulness into the “how to” pages. You are a born teacher, as well as an obvious math whiz who understands how triangles, squares, and diamonds can work together! I greatly appreciate the “teaching” efforts you included in this book. I look forward to making several of the quilts in this book, especially the Ring of Fire and the Monet’s Wedding Ring.

Monet's Wedding Ring has got to be the most unique Double Wedding Ring I've seen! I know which quilt I'm going to make when I get my book. Thanks for sharing your creative muse with us.

The meaty part of the book, of course, are those sixteen luscious quilt patterns sure to consume your fabric scraps most artistically. Judy goes over the top in presenting each of them with great clarity, assigning several pages for every one.

This book is the answer to one of the most frequently asked questions by all quilters - "What can I do with all of my scraps?" Judy beautifully illustrates the reason that scrap quilts have been so loved by generations of quilters.

I am having a ball with the new Scraps book. I just love so many of the quilts in it. Thanks for such wonderful patterns.
---Brinda Sexton, Bay City, MI
Honestly, I'm having trouble deciding which one I like best. Many are challenging, but I'm particularly intrigued with Three of a Kind, mainly because it looks like fun. And Fanfare for Heroes is the kind of quilt I call yummy because it looks good enough to eat. I love your shadow quilts - what a great idea. As always, your gorgeous borders finish the quilts. Congratulations. You've done it again. You never disappoint.
