Traditional Two Block Quilts

Traditional Two Block Quilts

By taking two or more traditional block patterns in the same quilt, the author takes us to a new level of design. Quilters will recognize many old 'friends' in these charming two-block quilts, such as Log Cabin, Sawtooth Star, Churn Dash, and Nine-Patch. There are also a few blocks that are a little unusual, and some three-block quilts were thrown into the mix just for fun. Whether you are an early intermediate quilter or a more experienced quilter, these quick, classy projects will fill your needs. All the blocks are constructed in simple units familiar to quilters, mostly squares, rectangles, strips, and half- and quarter-square triangles. Measurements are provided for those pieces that lend themselves to rotary cutting, and patterns are included for odd-sized pieces and appliques. Quilters are encouraged to strike out on their own with simple identification of those blocks that will produce the best results, including a description of the properties of quilt blocks and various setting variations. Also learn how to create the illusion of sashing, and circles from straight lines.

With a few tricks of the trade, traditional quilt blocks can take on a whole new look. Sally Saulmon explains how this is done in Traditional Two Block Quilts, published by the American Quilter’s Society. Suitable for both novice and experienced quilters, this title presents patterns and complete instructions for 14 different blocks. For each, there is a list of fabrics and supplies, and illustrated, step-by-step instructions. The author explains how to create the impression of circles and sashing by combining the blocks in different ways. She provides all the basics on everything from choosing fabric and cutting to projects. Throughout the book, there are handy tips and hints in sidebars.
