Format: Paperback
While reading this book and exploring its techniques, I was impressed by the author's vast knowledge of the periods and practices of past quilt fabrics. The projects bring the warmth of vintage bits and blocks to the practicality of today's home. Most of all, I loved reading the historical and biographical information on the quiltmakers whose "orphans" are featured.

Format: Paperback
Very clever and novel idea on what to do with "orphan" vintage blocks. Make something new! Great ideas, designs and new quilt applications if you don't happen to have some old block laying around. Well written and I love the history written in the book.

I saw this book at Sewing Expo 2011 and thought I might like it. Living in Seattle gives me an advantage because it is home to Amazon.com. Searched on-line when I got home and found the book at a wonderful price...it is everything I had hoped for. Found 'orphan' quilt blocks my Grandmother had hand-stitched, saved by my Mom who made many quilts in her lifetime, but never was able to finish this project. Now it's my turn....with the help of the fantastic guide!

I would like to have seen more ideas for one block orphans. Bags, table runners, purses, aprons, pot holders, etc. The ideas for several block orphans and antique orphans were excellent. I purchased this for myself and also the local library.

More About the Author

I always wanted to be a writer. Other dreams of "what I wanted to be when I grew up" changed over the years, but being a writer was always there in the back of my mind. I took creative writing in high school. I minored in writing as an undergraduate while I majored in history. After working in a museum and learning first-hand about textiles, I taught myself to quilt. Later, I became a teacher and then a librarian. It's not surprising I combined writing, history, teaching and quilting in my book, Orphan Block Quilts.
