Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Houts and Wright ran workshops in conjunction with publication of their earlier book Circle of Nine, which pieced together the sisters' versatile ideas for laying out nine quilt blocks using what they call "spacers" instead of sashes. Attendees asked many questions about spacers: which will make the blocks look best; what happens with pieced spacers; how do mathematics matter? Wright and Houts here answer those questions while presenting variations on the nine-block-as-spacers theme. The idea, they say, is for all quilters, regardless of level of expertise, to build on the Circle of Nine "design system." The authors re-explain the blocks themselves, followed by explanations and diagrams of spacers, with four full pages of variations by inches and designs. Twelve quilt patterns, designed alternately by each woman, include intricate ones, such as "Garden Grace," that require a second study to tease out the circle of nine. Graphics and instructions for the quilts are maximal; text is minimal (with occasional snags in grammar and punctuation). (Sept.)

    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.

    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.
