Overview

Providing quilters, researchers, and design enthusiasts with a comprehensive tool for finding, identifying, and drafting more than 4,000 unique patterns, this encyclopedia of quilt block designs presents a method of categorizing designs that eliminates duplication and allows quilters to understand exactly how each one is constructed. Each design is analyzed in terms of the grid on which it is drawn, making it easy recreate the pattern in any size or color scheme desired. Each block is thoroughly researched and listed according the original name and date of publication. Double names and duplicates are cross-referenced for easy use. Packed with information and inspiration, this also contains photographs of full quilts, as well as a detailed bibliography and indexes.

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.
