Sarah Maxwell and Dolores Smith teach readers how to
combine fabric from several different lines and styles to create
unique “controlled scrappy” quilts that reflect the maker’s
personality. Dolores in particular loves working with wool,

plaids with wools or cottons. The fun is in seeing how blocks
emerge as you combine different prints, values, and even
