Quilt blocks are our Friday night fix, our one-at-a-time victories, our miniature masterpieces. The Quilt Block Cookbook is a thoughtfully curated volume of 50 different 12-inch quilt blocks in a variety of complexities and styles from best-selling online quilting instructor Amy Gibson.
Dig right into the block recipes and bring them to life in Amy’s 7 innovative modern sampler patterns, or use the blocks in creative combinations to cook up your own dynamic quilt designs. Use classic “ingredients” like half-square triangles and flying geese, add your favorite fabrics and mix them with these new and unique blocks.
In addition to the 50 blocks and the 7 sampler quilts, quilters will also learn how to use their quilt blocks in many different ways, creating dynamic design repeats by tapping into the limitless possibilities of block-based quilts. Amy, a popular instructor on Craftsy, includes a range of complexity that will appeal to beginners and experienced quilters alike, plus clean, simple photography.
Quilt blocks are like a box of chocolates – each one is a mini euphoria on its own. And when paired with other blocks, they're simply delectable! This curated reference book is chock-full of all the “ingredients” quilters need, making it a go-to resource for quilters of all skill levels
