    Super sized blocks makes a quilt FAST!

    With 22 super sized blocks to choose from, I don't know where to start! For our guild, I would even cut a few down (take out a few blocks) to make them more "cuddle on the couch" size.

    There are 5 pages of special techniques (general instructions) that covers how to use foundations for paper piecing, making mitered corners for the borders and machine stitched bindings. The projects have a paragraph about the block to begin with and then tells you the finished block size, the number of blocks needed and the finished quilt size.

    A straight forward materials and cutting list is easy to read so you are sure to have what you need at hand before you start. A colored photo of the finished quilt comes next. There are lots of graphics to go along with the written instructions on making the blocks and adding the sashing. Quilting is left up to your choice.

    A wide variety of colors and styles of fabric is featured so anyone should find something to suit their tastes. Several use large prints that are fussy cut for the center block. Units of fabrics are sewn together and then cut to make things go even faster. They go so fast that you can make one for a friend and one to keep for yourself. This will be a book I will take to my charity quilt guild so we can create quilts super fast and easy.
