Bonnie Hunter and her website www.quiltville.com are very well known for scrappy quilts—the more fabrics the better! Bonnie is also renowned for creating her 'scrap user system,' which enables her to access her stash easily and make the most of even the tiniest precious piece. From the generous sharing of information in the beginning to help you get the best results, through to the eye-boggling scrappiness of each project, this book (her seventh) is classic Bonnie. Each quilt is big, designed to go on a bed and be used and loved. Some of the designs are more muted, some are very bright, and there is even a Christmas one. The overall look is traditional, but by adding in the many fabrics and colours, the patterns gain a new vibrancy and interest. You will find yourself re-thinking the fabric you have not been brave enough to use before. While the thought of cutting and piecing so many components may seem daunting, the instructions are laid out in a logical order, there are many diagrams and lots of written instructions, plus a quick visual overview of how the blocks go together.
