Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This encyclopedic guide to quilt blocks collects over 4000 designs, both contemporary and historic, with color samples and drawings for each block. Translating the information from the book to a workable design requires knowledge of quilting technique, but intermediate and advanced quilters will appreciate the quantity of options available, as well as the intelligent organization. This book is as useful as a reference guide to the history and development of patchwork as it is for quilters looking for a distinctive design.
