SUMMARY- Crayon Box Scrap Quilts turns out to be quilts that use as many different fabrics as possible. I guess I should have been able to figure that out without reading the introduction, but since I didn't(figure it out), I'm explaining for the one other clueless person who stumbled across this review. Of course you knew exactly what it was and didn't need my help! I find these collections diverse and delightful and wish I had them all. Patterns are not provided for all the quilts, of course, but there are many patterns nontheless, so the books do double duty.
