Once again, expert quilt designer Elsie Campbell presents a book of quilt patterns that are one part innovation, one part thrift, and a whole lot of fun! Squares and Triangles, the second in Campbell's "Scrap Quilt Book Series," offers 13 basic but boldly sophisticated patterns. If you're a beginner, you'll want the book for its clear instructions and easy piecing steps. If you're more experienced, you'll love the versatility and nearly innumerable number of design possibilities shown here. Making the book a must-have are "Elsie's Top Tips for Squares and Triangle Quilts," complete with full-color diagrams. Says Campbell, "My favorite part of quiltmaking is playing with color and value so that I give a contemporary twist to traditional blocks and patterns." She does it here--with 13 quilts shown in full-color photography, along with easy-to-follow instructions, patterns, and diagrams for making each one. For beginning and intermediate quilters.
