Piece-quilters with some experience take heart: no more templates for those patchwork beauties; no worries about cutting perfect fabric shapes. In this hefty volume, Causee offers a pattern-a-day roundup of foundation quilt blocks that can be combined or repeated in any number of combinations. Organized by months, the colorful selection of blocks, mostly seven-inch squares, is a sampling of traditional (log cabin, pineapple, school house) and creative blocks, including designs that mark holidays or famous people, replicate animals and plants, or picture uncomplicated landscapes. A photo of the finished block appears in the upper right-hand corner of the page; the remainder of the page is devoted to the easy-to-trace, clearly numbered pattern. For those unfamiliar with foundation-block quilting (as well as those who need a refresher), Causee provides illustrated instructions on how it's done. Even quilters who prefer the traditional methods may get a few design ideas here. Stephanie ZvirinCopyright © American Library Association. All rights reserved
