Oh how I wish I had known about this book in 2001 when it was first published!!! I have struggled to make those pieces that come together in points (on the diagonal) and not been happy with my results. This book, BLOCK MAGIC, solves that problem for me. The book contains 70 patterns to make using only rectangles and squares. The patterns range from animals, to flowers to people to houses. There are themes such as Christmas, Easter and Back to School. In the introduction, there is a ¿how-to¿ so you can read the charts provided with each block and the blocks range in size from 6¿ to 15¿ depending on which one you choose to create. The colors chosen for each block shown and the tips that are also included provide a wealth of creativity for a quilter. Most quilters have a scrap bag that they just cannot part with. BLCOK MAGIC gives many squares that will use up those precious scraps. If this were not enough in one book, there are 20 quilt maps. These are suggestions on which squares would go together to make a quilt or wall hanging. As a quilting teacher, BLOCK MAGIC will be one book I incorporate in my classes. A beginner or a seasoned quilter will find that the instructions are easy to follow will inspire the students to come up with their own fabric and color ideas and combinations. Buy a copy of this book and you will be creating you own quilts/wall hangings for many days to come.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This is a great book. You can make many modifications to personalize quilts for others as gifts. I quilted one for my sister-in-law that has 12 different blocks that represent memories I have shared with her or things that she loves...The blocks were very fast to piece. Well worth getting-endless possiblities!!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
