safe to say i almost never pay full price for a book but after serious consideration, succumbed to this one. it arrived yesterday and today i'm adding one more thing to the sewing space--a scrap basket. previously i had cut up scraps into squares or strips but after reading AND seeing this, i need a scrap basket. i have a lot of strips and squares on hand that do get used but will try something new and exciting with them. what she does with scraps isn't new, so it must mean i'm creatively ready to veer off into a new quilty direction. traditional quilts are still my faves, but using color in a different (to me) way is beckoning. if you read this book, it may speak to you as well. at the very least, it's worth a look.
