This Dover reprint of the classic quilting book by Ruby McKim is one of the best quilting books ever written. The book describes 101 block patterns in both patchwork and applique as well as two embroidered blocks. Scattered among the patterns are eight short, well-written chapters describing how to piece, quilt and applique. Originally written in the late 1920's and early 1930's the instructions are as good as ever and Ms. McKim's writing clear and pleasant. This is an absolute steal at this price. Another gem from Dover.

This book gives you accurate traditional patterns -- that is, you make templates and cut each piece separately, and then sew them all together into blocks. There is an excellent variety of patterns, and many are not well-known nowadays, so the experienced quilter need not fear that there will be nothing new to enjoy. At the same time, there is sufficient information for the absolute beginner.
This book is from 1931, so of course it is not up-to-date. There is no mention of modern time-saving methods, and there is a certain quaintness to the text and pictures (maids in caps hold up the quilts, and the swastika pattern is presented with no self-consciousness). However, those who like the quilts of the early 20th century will value not only the patterns but also the color suggestions, which allow the quilter to make perfect retro quilts.
And there is simply no better quilt book for the price.

This book would be a great gift for anyone interested in quilt history. Interesting information about quilt names, pattern colors, estimating yardage and size was available for almost all patterns in this book. I thoroughly enjoyed the stories about the names, the author's comments about methods and some challenging patterns, and the instructions using cardboard templates and quilting designs.

I've noticed several people complaining this book lacks directions, which is untrue. Since this is a 1962 Dover REPRINT of a book originally published in 1931, it's absurd to expect there to be rotary cutting directions in this book! Patterns are FULL-SIZED and, while size in inches isn't noted, one must have mastered the basic uses of a simple ruler to make these blocks and adjust their sizes up or down to suit one's needs. If women in the 1930's-on could figure out these patterns, a modern woman (or man) can, too. Lazy quilters won't be happy, though, because there WILL be thought processes involved. With care, most of these traditional quilt blocks CAN be cut with a rotary cutter. But if you REALLY want to be traditional, make the templates as Ruby McKim recommends. There are many books out there with these same traditional blocks but Ruby's history notes with each of them is really what makes this book shine.

This is a quilt book I purchased when it was first printed. The details are fine, and there are many historic patterns. I wish there were more suggestions for the actual quilting design to enhance the specific patterns. (Borders) It's a fine book to begin, and today quilting has really exploded into a huge art medium. There are no limits in quilting today.

This book is very interesting.
Some people might think like me but some people might think not like me because inside this book is not like other books.
Most of the books we can see patterns very clear and we can start to make quilt or block soon but this book is not like that.
Hand writing patterns but I can still make these blocks.(That is just take more time to make these blocks)

This is a must-have classic book of quilt patterns for any serious quilter/ quilt researcher/ quilt historian. Ruby McKim was a pioneer in quilt patterns. One of those small treasures that I keep a copy of because of its connection to early quilt research. So glad Dover still makes it available!
