This is one brilliant book!
I have recently started quilting and it
is such a huge craft that sometimes
it can be overwhelming. 
This book takes the blocks you can make
and put them in one easy to follow book.


Each block is in the book with clear
pictures to show you the different parts,
a picture of the completed block
and a picture of the finished square.
You also get cutting instructions
as well as Make It instructions.


You will not believe the amount of
squares you can make and how different
they all look.


At the start of the book it is explained
how to use the book.
How to work with different units
to make different looks and sizes.


All of the tools you will need are discussed
so you will be clear what you need to get first.


The blocks are then in sections:
Basic Triangles, Corner Cutters, Short & Tall Triangles,
Bursts & Blooms & Straight Aways.


As you near the back of the book
you are then given quilts to make from the squares.
There are step-by-step instructions
to help you complete your quilt.



Then you are given step-by-step instructions,
pictures and diagrams to teach you
how to quilt the different shapes
and how to paper piece.


At the back you will find a unit sizing chart
and the templates for the different
shapes you will use within the squares.



This is the type of book you will use
time and again.
Whoever or whatever the occasion for making
a quilt you are sure to put together
brilliant designs from within the book.
