201 Quilt Blocks Motifs, Projects, and Ideas
In this invaluable directory, Louise Bell provides an eclectic mix of 201 well-loved traditional designs together with a multitude of her own original ideas, developed over twenty years of quilt-making. Here you will find the old Log Cabin, for instance, and Shoo Fly rubbing shoulders with patterns you will not find anywhere else. In quilting, each block is made of units, or patches, usually geometric in shape but sometimes curved.
Changing the number of units, as well as their colour and arrangement, changes the whole appearance of the block, giving rise to thousands of different designs. Some have been handed down from generation to generation.
Divided into sections on patchwork blocks and applique patterns, this book includes four, nine, five and seven-patch designs, as well as eight-pointed star, hexagonal and diamond blocks, among many others. Join the blocks together to create bedspreads, throws, wall hangings, cushions and more - the possibilities are endless.
Applique motifs include all the letters of the alphabet, so you can personalize any item, and every block and pattern has full step-by-step instructions.
