About the Author

We were saddened to hear of the passing of Judy Hopkins on March 9, 2011.

Judy was one of our most prolific and bestselling authors, having published 17 books between 1989 and 2011. Her collaboration with Nancy Martin, 101 Fabulous Rotary-Cut Quilts, has sold more than 131,000 copies. Her Around the Block series, which ultimately became 501 Rotary-Cut Quilt Blocks, was the design source for probably tens of thousands of quilts around the world. Judy was a major figure in the quilt industry for decades. She will be greatly missed.

Lots of quilt patterns but not for the novice.

Have you ever been stymied on what block to use to make a quilt? Do you have a special fabric but no pattern to use? Then 501 ROTARY-CUT QUILT BLOCKS is just the book for you. My guild makes charity quilts and the gals are always looking for a different pattern to use so t his book will get a lot of use by us.

It starts out with a six page explanation on how to use the block patterns and jumps right in with a block called Boy¿s Nonsense to explain how to read the charts which have several block sizes. This is a nice feature as you can ¿grow¿ or ¿shrink¿ a quilt to your needs. The charts also have a ¿try this¿ line which gives you an alternative colorway suggestion. Cutting variations, tips for specialty blocks, making multiple blocks and calculating yardage is also included in this section.

The next 17 pages are colored pictures of each block in the book. They each show the block name and the page it can be found on. The last 9 pages are the templates needed to create the blocks. The rest of the book shows the charts for making each block. This includes a black and white picture of the block, a block that shows the letter templates used to create the block and an exploded picture of the block which shows you how to assemble it.

I will put this book in my rolling sewing tote so I am sure to have it each time our guild meets. Get one for yourself or buy one for a quilting friend. You or they won¿t be disappointed.
