About this item
In one volume, quilters will find 201 classic blocks that they can use to hone their sewing skills, in block exchanges or to create wonderful block sampler quilts. In this impressive collection, the author organizes the blocks in groups of 2 × 2, 3 × 3, 4 × 4, and 6 × 6 grids with instructions and math provided for 6-, 9- and 12-inch blocks. This book is a block library that will be quilters’ go-to source for reference, inspiration and instruction.With the exception of a few that were designed by the author, the block designs are all nearly 100 years old. Some designs are still sewn to this day, but many deserve new recognition and use by today’s quilters. • A browser’s delight: the four-color photography provides color and fabric-choice inspiration to quilters, and each block’s evocative name recalls quilting’s rich history. • Clear instructions and expert advice: exploded diagrams of each block make construction a snap without special rulers. Tips on fabric selection, color choice, cutting pressing and sewing.• No math: The author provides accurate dimensions for each cut so that quilters can easily size their blocks for 6-, 9- or 12-inches.
