Format: Paperback
One of the most fun things about working with quilt blocks is that you never know what surprises you will encounter. Two relatively plain looking blocks can yield a dynamite quilt design by the interaction of their elements, creating an entirely different secondary pattern. Claudia Olson takes this basic geometric phenomenon and makes a science of it. By studying various quilt block designs, she discovers the secrets of why some blocks work well together and others do not, and shares her knowledge with us. The result is a series of striking new geometric designs made from familiar favorites. The lion's share of this book is given over to detailed project instructions illustrated in full color, and Olson's color choices are varied and interesting. I particularly like the quilt "Dublin Square," which combines Dublin Steps and Town Square blocks. This book can teach you a lot about the social lives of quilt blocks.

Great book! Wonderful selection of traditional quilt blocks to choose from in creating intricate, yet uncomplicated quilts with secondary designs. I especially liked the coordinated borders using block elements to create an even more finished-looking quilt.

I LOVE the patterns in this book plus it has great tips on how to make your own pattern by combining two blocks. What I like about two block quilt patterns so much is that the result is a complex, advanced looking quilt top, but it just takes average skill since all you're doing is combining two simple blocks to create the pattern.
