By taking two or more traditional block patterns in the same quilt, the author takes us to a new level of design. Quilters will recognize many old 'friends' in these charming two-block quilts, such as Log Cabin, Sawtooth Star, Churn Dash, and Nine-Patch. There are also a few blocks that are a little unusual, and some three-block quilts were thrown into the mix just for fun. Whether you are an early intermediate quilter or a more experienced quilter, these quick, classy projects will fill your needs. All the blocks are constructed in simple units familiar to quilters, mostly squares, rectangles, strips, and half- and quarter-square triangles. Measurements are provided for those pieces that lend themselves to rotary cutting, and patterns are included for odd-sized pieces and appliques. Quilters are encouraged to strike out on their own with simple identification of those blocks that will produce the best results, including a description of the properties of quilt blocks and various setting variations. Also learn how to create the illusion of sashing, and circles from straight lines.
