Scrap quilts are an excellent choice for mixed media artists, since we so often have little bits and pieces of materials left over from other projects. Scrap Quilt Secrets by Diane D. Knott, published by C&T Publishing will be released in April, and in it, Diane explains how she moves from traditional quilts as inspiration to creating her own original designs. The main premise is that if you learn to pay close attention to what it is you like about one quilt, you will be able to create your own version of it that is successful rather than disappointing. Each chapter discusses a design element that you may find appealing as the central focus of your quilt: style, contrast, repetition, accent, palette, and selvages. Each chapter also has quilt designs and instructions, including an templates needed, which will help you explore these concepts. Throughout is Diane's advice and tips on how to customize the patterns and plans for yourself.

In this book she shares secrets that you can use to make your own successful scrap quilts, in your own style. Diane gives practical tips on color, value, design, fabrics, and quilting that you can use in scrap quilts and all of your quilting projects. Fons and Porter's Love of Quilting, May/June 2016 The six design techniques are based on the acronym SCRAPS. Style is a personal choice, traditional, geometric patterns, folky, etc. Contrast, more important than colour. Use a camera to check colour values. Repetition, use one colour or shape in every block. Accent, one fabric to unite blocks e.g. as in sashing. Palette, limit colours to two or three. Selvedges, perhaps the most surprising, cut selvedges together by overlaying them to make striped fabric. Every area has two or more quilts for each technique. There are clear directions for many methods of piecing. It is an interesting approach to scrap quilts. It is my Book of the Month. British Patchwork & Quilting, July 2016 The word 'scrap' can have the implication of fabric that is left over or unwanted, but when you see the stunning designs in this book, you'll realise just how fabulous working with scraps can be. In the first part of the book the author explains her secrets for using scraps. She provides guidance for selecting fabrics and making the most of every piece. Some of the quilts are simple, some more complex, some have a very restricted colour palette, others utilise a wider range of fabrics. There are many options to choose from, whether your preference is for a traditional or more modern look. As well as expert tips, there is plenty of reference information on quilt-making basics, as well as blanks for colouring so you can design your own unique block versions. This book is a great reference for when you are wanting to make room in your stash. Down Under Quilts, Issue 176
