Like many other sewists I keep a stash of inspirational and technical books alongside my fabric stash in my sewing room. I have found this book to be a great addition as it's not about showing you finished items, just the blocks that can be used in quilting. The imagination part is what we as individuals add.

The blocks are shown very clearly, all 501 of them and you really have to give time and attention to what you can achieve. It also includes diagrams of how the blocks are put together, something that is often tricky to work out but this book takes that mystery away

It has something for everyone, from beginner to expert. Range of block sizes is given for every block with templates for particular items at the back. One point I would make is that you must trace/copy the templates in the back of the book as accuracy is very important in quilting.

This is likely too be a very well used book in my collection and highly recommend it

I purchased these to store creative course work. Very sturdy and far from boring covers. Nice to have folders that inspirational design instead of plain old black

What a change to have decent designed folders on the shelf. How I detested the old black lever arches. Well made and I've filled one already. The clip holds the paperwork very well so that's a winner!

I agree that the protective covering is a bit of a challenge. The stand puts together very easily and I don't agree that it's not sturdy. Looked beautiful full of cupcakes and made quite a table piece. Highly recommend

I started a Sugar paste course in Sept 2012 and this was recommended by the tutor. Its an excellent complimentary aide to the hands on teaching. Out of class it helps tremendously in taking skills a stage further. I'm not sure I could do this craft with the book only as my guide but that's not a negative. It's a case of understanding how tricky this craft actually is. The designs and floral spray ideas cakes for cakes are very inspiring!

I wrote an earlier review on a poor experience with these gloves and so here is the update. The new gloves are very good, just as prior pairs I've owned

I now have three sizes of bias binding "gadgets" and simply wouldn't be without them. Easy to use and opens the world no greater creativity. No more buying dull shop made bindings
