5,500 blocks to copy, adapt, and combine in countless ways A source book of ideas & designs The quilter's bible with thousands of designs to choose from 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 any more. Some designs are classic, and taken from museum collections, handed from friend to friend, or kept in the family for many years. Each pattern is drawn on a grid, showing the number of squares to the block, and that makes 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 countless more. They're all arranged by type - including 4, 5, and 9-patch patterns; circles and curves; octagons; diamonds; and 9-point stars - and indexed alphabetically by name. There's even information on the block-s source. No quilter can do without this book.
