Quick and Scrappy Quilts is a fun book for new or rexperienced quilters. It has 17 patterns, most of which are throw / lap size. I have made several quilts from this book and the directions were clear and easy to follow. If you look at photo 1, you can see there is a small chunk missing from the bottom right corner of the cover. The book is 56 pages. There is no writing or damage to the interior pages.
