Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Subtitled A Treasury of Patterns for Patchwork & Appliqué, this comprehensive book is just that--250 pages of pattern-block diagrams accompanied by concise construction directions and small color photos of the made-up blocks in well-chosen colors. In addition, a prelimary chapter gives instructions for about 15 projects, and a tips and techniques section outlines the basics for making the blocks and the projects. Whether your tastes run to the more traditional (nine-patch, star, basket, or pineapple variations, among many others) or the more experimental (appliquéd orchids, cacti, or heraldic designs, for example), you're likely to find something of interest here.

Blocks are shown in 4" size but I have enlarged them on a copier with great success.

This is my all time favorite pattern book!! If I could only afford one pattern book, I hope that is not so, this would be it! Loaded with 250 pages of patterns for patchwork, appliqué and many are easily adaptable to foundation piecing. Blocks are shown in 4" size but I have enlarged them on a copier with great success. Each of the blocks are shown in clear concise color photos. There are many wonderful themes scattered throughout the book, including: Teatime, Thirties, Flowers, Noah's Ark, and every holiday you can think of. The Preface offers 40 different projects you could make with these blocks, including wearable art.

As a beginning quilter I love seeing all the different blocks with the names. It's a great reference guide. However, I don't like the fact that the blocks are so small and the patterns don't give you cutting instuctions or seam allowances. The color photos of the finished blocks are really nice to have, but the sewing in the photos is not very good quality and it gives the impression that the blocks may be difficult to make.

This is a great block pattern book. However as a beginner quilter, I have a hard time using this book to it's full potential because many of the patterns are a difficult and translating these blocks into a quilt requires some experience in figuring out how much fabric you'll need. I am definitely keeping the book and I'm sure I'll use it more when I'm a bit more experienced. I would recommend it to intermediate and advanced quilters.

The book just arrived. I am new at quilting. There is every applique design you could ever want to use. The other block designs are just beautiful. If I could only have 1 book to use, it would be this book. The directions are clear and very easy to understand. I can't wait to get startedf!!!

When looking through this book ,you cannot help but imagine all the projects you could make with it. The variety of subjects of the blocks, makes it very flexible and will enable you to make a quilt on almost any subject. It also covers a good variety of patchwork, and applique. For anyone who knows the basics of these arts, this book would be a very useful and addictive reference guide.

I had no idea that this was a book of 4" blocks when I ordered it. It is exactly what I needed since I am focusing on smaller quilts. Has full size blocks that can be traced for foundation piecing. Some great ideas for projects. I highly recommend it for all quilters but especially for the quilters who like smaller projects. It is truly a "treasury" and belongs in your library.

The minute I saw this book, I had to have it. The directions were very clear. The book did not repeat basic topics that seem to take up just 1/3 of just about every quilt book I ever read, yet it would be appropriate for beginners or advanced quilters. It provided more patterns than I have ever seen in one quilt book. Both traditional and brand new ideas were presented. My favorite quilt block was the one with the rotary cutter.
