Explore the fascinating world of seven-by-seven and five-by-five designs. The Encyclopedia of Patchwork Blocks, Volume 4, is a collection of 109 blocks that are divided into seven or five equal units in each direction- old favorites like Bear's Paw, Dove in the Window and Rolling Star, and new blocks with names like Graduation, Portland Headlight and Central Square, plus a dozen baskets and a variety of blocks suitable for signatures and specialty prints. Full of ideas for rotary cutting, sewing tricks and quilt layouts, this book will inspire you every time you pick it up. Blocks are featured in up to four sizes and keyed for use with Perfect Patchwork Templates Sets L and M; patterns are also included.
Sets L and M are size-specific. Set L's 8 1/2" blocks become 12" blocks when they are set on point, so the templates extended the creative possibilities again! (Set M blocks become 17" set on point.)
On the above page page, Grandmother's Choice is the parent block to four offspring, and two of those blocks are new designs. On the facing page (not illustrated here) are two quilt layouts and general information about making them. (The block encyclopedias are chock full of blocks and tips, but they are not "learn to quilt" books.)
"Special Notes" is a note that these blocks can be made in additional sizes using Sets A/C and B/D, and Volume 2. Volume 4 also includes details on how to use the templates to measure and cut strips that are the perfect width for using the templates with your rotary cutter.
