    This is from a book "Scrap Quilt Sensation" by Katharine Guerrier. Book is from Britain. I found it on http://www.edwardrhamilton.com/. This is a site that collects books from booksellers and sells them at a discount. I bought this one for $4.95. I actually found a quilt from this book in a quilt show in Florida. The site has an extensive list of quilting books (listed under needlecraft), priced from $4.95 and up. They don't take credit cards so you can fill out an order sheet, print it and then mail it with your check. Shipping is low. You can also order a catalogue. This is an excellent site to get low-cost quilting books.

    Love the quilt. Says volumns about the quality and beauty of quilts from "scraps". Seeing this just enhances my joy when I open my scrap drawer. Also, thanks so much for link to website. As you know we all spend way too much money on books, but just can't help ourselves. My son says my quilting is my only vice...thank goodness!

    Love this website and the lovely quilters who share so much valuable information.

    I made the same quilt for my then 13 yr. old grandson in plaids, checks and some colourful stripes.
    It's masculine looking, which was important to me.
    I wish I knew how to up load pictures!
