Got scraps? Find 18 projects, each made from 2-1/2" strips, in this 80-page book that includes ideas for using pre-cut strips, hosting a strip swap, raiding your scrap basket, and sorting and storing. -- American Patchwork & Quilting magazine

Scrap Basket Surprises features 18 quilts, all made from 2-1/2" strips, so this book is jelly roll friendly. Kim Bracket teaches you how to make your own scrap basket of strips from using stash fabrics, pre-cut strips, strip swaps and new fabrics. She also explains clever ways to sort and store the 2-1/2" strips you will be collecting for your projects in the book.

There are also basic quiltmaking instructions with wonderful graphics that are very easy to follow, which is important for us quilters. This is a great book for a beginner quilter but also is appropriate for any quilter who needs a weekend or retreat project. These are projects that will appeal to a range of styles, from country to contemporary, '30s to Americana and more. I chose this book for its variety. I won't buy a book unless I want to make several projects from it, and this book has many appealing quilts!
