Quilter's Album of Patchwork Patterns


"The Quilter's Album of Patchwork Patterns is a master work featuring over 4,050 blocks along with new instructional tools to let you draft your block any size you want. Each block is historically referenced to its first date of publication, making this an invaluable guide for quilters, historians, and collectors."

I bought this book for one of my daughters for her birthday and had to buy myself one and called it my mothers day present. It is wonderful. I love reading the historical information that she included. The chapters on drafting your own patterns are great. I think if I were stranded on a deserted island and could only have one quilt book, this one would be the book. Beautifully illustrated and well documented. I cant say to many times that I love it.
