*Starred Review* An amazing amount of meticulous research elevates this compendium from a ho-hum aggregate to one that inspires and engages. Well-known quilter and prolific author (a dozen titles, such as Quilting by Hand, 2004, and Patchwork Puzzle Balls, 2005) Beyer pored through newspapers, catalogs, patterns, and magazines of the 1800s and 1900s to prepare illustrations—along with grids, dates, and multiple names—of more than 4,000 quilting blocks, the foundation of this genre of stitching. Yet providing that resource wasn’t enough; Beyer enhances her encyclopedic reference by featuring mini catalogs of like-minded design styles, like bow ties, airplanes, the Red Cross, and kaleidoscope blocks. She also details her sources with commentary and explains how she categorized the blocks. Worthy of any quilting (and quilter’s) library. --Barbara Jacobs
