In Scrappy & Happy Quilts, Kate is creating modern, graphic designs using two or three colours with an additional background fabric, typically a light shade such as white or cream. While you might think that this would preclude using your fabric scraps, this isn't so: you will just be pulling from a specific colour of your scrap bins, not all of them. 

These designs are mostly pieced although there are a few paper pieced projects too. Lots of half-square triangles, which I love!

The designs in this book have lots of opportunities to work with a controlled palette, even if you are using fabric scraps. The quilts are also perfect for practising your free motion or walking foot quilting skills.
