Summary

Summary

This is the quilter's bible, a never-ending source of inspiration. With 5,500 blocks to copy, adapt, and combine in countless ways, no quilter will ever have to run out of patterns. Each is drawn on a grid, showing the number of squares to the block. It easy to mix-and-match, because they will all draft to the same size. The dazzling choices include a Premium Star, Double Pyramid, Strips and Squares, Farmer's Puzzle, Sunburst, Beggar's Blocks, and thousands more.

Library Journal Review

Malone, who has been collecting quilt block patterns since 1958, here assembles a treasury of quilt blocks from more than 75 publications, including museum collections and the Kansas City Star patterns, as well as blocks from contemporary sources such as Quiltmaker and the Quilter's Newsletter. Malone organizes this wealth of patterns by the number of squares in a block, making it easy for the reader to mix and match blocks to plan a unique quilt. Each design contains a color drawing of the block, the name or names by which it is known, and the source of the pattern. A detailed index makes this book an excellent reference source. Highly recommended for quilting collections in both public and academic libraries. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
