Brilliant, bright, and beautiful
on 26 July 2012
Betty Barnden always turns out blocks and items to inspire me, I just love her ideas. This book is choc full of them - loads of beautiful coloured hexagons, squares, circles and triangles together with ideas for using them - love it. There are flower purses and a rose scarf and a daisy cushion and as well as few wonderful things to make there's also useful stuff such as showing the difference between blocks if you use various yarns, then there's testing your tension, doesn't matter so much for a throw or cushion but if you're going to use the blocks for a garment then this is useful to know.
You'll also get well illustrated instructions on how to join blocks in various ways, really, the information included, the lovely diagrams and fabulously coloured pictures, and the sheer inspiration in here makes this money well spent.
