Editorial Reviews

Australian Quilters Companion
This is a fantastic reference tool for any quilter, whether you draft your own blocks now or are looking to do it in the future. Sally makes the whole process a lot simpler and clearer.
The Applique Society
Sally Collins tells you everything you ever wanted to know about drafting your own quilt. In Sally's own words she says Learning to draft my own patterns has provided me with the opportunity to create unique quilts in any size I choose, with complete freedom and confidence in my ability to achieve a worthy manifestation of the thought in my mind. You too can discover this freedom by learning to draft your own quilt patterns. The book covers how to draft blocks based on grids, circles, simple and complex 8-pointed, 10-pointed and Feathered Star blocks. Mirrors, graph paper, pencil and a calculator are just a few of the tools you will learn to use as you design your first project. When drafting your block you can take a traditional block and create your own unique designs by fracturing the basic structure of the block. There is a supply list and instructions on how to use the tools along with a good lesson on identifying the basic grid structure of a block. The simple step-by-step instruc-tions for drafting grid-based blocks, star blocks, circular patterns and more are easy to follow along. Three projects are included, each with a varying level of difficulty and each builds on the lessons from the last.
From the Publisher
This is the drafting book which every quilter needs, especially if you do not design by computer. It contains simple step-by-step instructions for drafting grid-based blocks, star-blocks, circular patterns and many others. The book includes 3 projects, each with a varying level of difficulty and will help you recognize the underlying architecture of patchwork so that you can recreate any block you wish in any size that you choose. This is detailed and excellent reference book.—Fabrications (12/10)
