1000 Great Quilt Blocks by Maggi McCormick Gordon
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This book really does contain 1000 blocks for making patchwork quilts. Many are familiar old favourites; others are not so well known. All are shown as diagrams, with a key to outline the constituent parts of each block so you can figure your own measurements and draft your own templates to make a block of any size to suit your requirements. Tips to help you estimate fabric requirements are also included. There are hints for enlarging and reducing patterns, for working out how to add seam allowances to any element, square or not, and examples of combined blocks that make secondary patterns when they are put together with other blocks. This colossal collection is divided into chapters according to type of block: four-patch, five-patch, seven-patch, nine-patch, one-piece patterns, strips, curves, baskets, pictorial blocks and even an alphabet or two. In addition, there are motifs - ranging from stars to scotty dog to flowers, to copy for use in foundation piecing. This is further enhanced with useful techniques such as making templates, cutting, hand piecing, machine piecing and measuring making this an invaluable and inspiring crafter's guide you'll turn to time and time again.
