Twenty beautiful quilts using five easy blocks! — Review by The Quilter
Overall Rating
"Grandma made gorgeous quilts," writes Donna poster in her new book, "Block Beauty Quilts." "Each one was very different...yet she used only two pattern pieces, over and over and over again." Donna, a quilt teacher who has taught at national shows and on television, also enjoys working repeatedly with her own favorite patterns. Each of the five chapters in the book presents instructions for one basic pattern as well as three variations. The result is 20 beautiful quilts from five easy blocks. Each quilt design has accompanying charts that contain yardages and cutting for seven different sizes--from wallhanging through king. Alternate color suggestions are included, as well as blank design spaces to color your own quilt--a great value with myriad possibilities! --"The Quilter", March 2010, page 78. (Posted on 1/22/10)
