Any book that starts with a tribute to Gwen Marston has my attention right away. I very much liked Harris's minimalist quilts, especially Twinkling Stars, Don't Fence Me In and Scrap Box. Her other quilts feature a color palette that feels too intense or too busy to me, but her advice is still good. Time to start making little stars with 1 1/2" centers!

Lynn Harris covers a wide variety of scrappy styles.
Some have too much going on for my taste, and some are minimalist perfection.

I have already decided I am going to start making Very Tiny Stars for either a "Twinkling Star" or a "Stardust" quilt.

I really appreciate the Design Ideas Harris puts after the different quil

This book offers a range of projects from traditional to modern, and from heavily scrappy to minimally scrappy. There are also a lot of suggestions to help get your imagination going.

I love that she recommends owning a treadle sewing machine for those times when the power goes out!

I had a big grin on my face when I opened this book and saw the author posing with Gwen Marston! Two cute quilters.
Lots of good patterns for scrappy quilts. Stories of inspiration for quilts is one of my favorite things in a quilt book. I loved the "Butterfly Effect" story and the quilt.
