about

The Quilt Block Cookbook is a thoughtfully curated volume of 50 different 12-inch quilt blocks in a variety of complexities and styles. 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! Most quilt blocks are comprised of basic elements, and you'll learn the ingredients for each. In addition to other 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fresh ideas on Quilt Blocks I bought this book after seeing the cover (love the Cookbook idea). As someone who likes Block of the Month projects, this is a great tool. Plenty of blocks to choose from in three standard sizes. And these blocks are "fresh" .. might be familiar to many quilters but I found some great ideas for blocks I had not seen before. Highly recommend for great pictures, clear instructions and overall inspiration. Happy quilting!

Editorial Reviews

"In this mock cookbook, Gibson (For Keeps) instructs readers on seven sampler quilt designs, a pu pu platter of piecing. The metaphor of a cookbook extends throughout her sample blocks, which are organized by size; the introduction includes sections on "ingredients" and "stocking your kitchen," and the accompanying artwork includes cookbook-inspired flair such as dustings of flour or pats of butter laid out next to block designs. The book includes directions for 50 sample blocks, which vary in appeal and difficulty. It takes on energy when Gibson lays out her seven sampler quilts and the blocks brighten in the context of their neighbors. For example, giant spools acquire depth when pieced together, and pairing certain blocks commands attention in a way that singles did not. Gibson's folksy writing style encourages playfulness; her instructions, templates, and charts address skills from initial measuring to final pressing.  Color photos."
