Another great book by two good authors, Quilting a Circle of Nin
Another great book by two good authors, Quilting a Circle of Nine, gives me lots of ideas on how to lay out my next quilt.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
I love the illusion of a circle that the setting gives a quilt. And the setting blocks doesn’t take much material so I can use up my stash. The first book discussed the Circle of Nine blocks while this one focuses on the setting blocks.
The authors show different grids such as a one patch, four patch, nine patch and 16 patch. While I don’t see the grids in the photos, I understand the patterns. I either count too many patches or not enough. Maybe I’m being too literal. It doesn’t matter. I understand the way they are laid out and that is what matters.
There are five pages of spacer blocks that include cut sizes. And there are a dozen quilt patterns so you can practice the techniques the authors are describing. The patterns are well written with a colored photo of the quilt, finished quilt and block sizes and even a few acronyms explained.
The material and cutting lists are clear and the written instructions contain plenty of graphics for those of us that are visual – AKA quilters! Templates are provided at full size when needed.
I can’t wait to get sewing on one of these beautiful quilts.
