    Have been enjoying looking at quilting books, and though I haven t tried any of them out yet, there were some cool blocks in here The one thing I wish this book had was visualizations of what it would look like to put them together for a quilt.

    If you ve been quilting for years, you ll find most books on block design are fundamentally the same This book tweaks those designs, presents them in retro fabric or with a splash of novelty fabric that you might normally hesitate to use, and comes up with a whole new look.Some designs, I felt, are a bit TOO basic to merit inclusion And while others are described as looking striking when replicated over a larger area, it would have been good to have an illustration of that.However makes you th If you ve been quilting for years, you ll find most books on block design are fundamentally the same This book tweaks those designs, presents them in retro fabric or with a splash of novelty fabric that you might normally hesitate to use, and comes up with a whole new look.Some designs, I felt, are a bit TOO basic to merit inclusion And while others are described as looking striking when replicated over a larger area, it would have been good to have an illustration of that.However makes you think about patchwork from a new angle, so a useful addition to your sewing library.NB Have just started one block entitled on the plus side by Emily Cier the jigsaw look one on cover and found 4 rows in that the measurements were all wrong so have had to re do it to own dimensions
