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.
