This is the quilter's bible, a never-ending source of inspiration. With 5,500 blocks to copy, adapt, and combine in countless ways, no quilter will ever have to run out of patterns any more. Some designs are classic, and taken from museum collections, handed from friend to friend, or kept in the family for many years. Each pattern is drawn on a grid, showing the number of squares to the block, and that makes it easy to mix-and-match because they will all draft to the same size. The dazzling choices include a Premium Star, Double Pyramid, Strips and Squares, Farmer's Puzzle, Sunburst, Beggar's Blocks, and countless more. They're all arranged by type - including 4, 5, and 9-patch patterns; circles and curves; octagons; diamonds; and 9-point stars - and indexed alphabetically by name. There's even information on the block-s source. No quilter can do without this book.

BUT I did want to mention the seller.
The book hadn't arrived as quickly as orders from other sellers usually do, and although not "late", I was beginning to wonder what had happened. I received an email advising that the book had been sent the day after I had placed the order, but had been returned in a damaged condition and not suitable for sale. I was offered a substitute book with "slightly banged corners", and a refund of part of my payment. I accepted the offer, expecting to be able to return the book if I was unhappy.
The replacement book arrived a few days later, extremely well packaged (I can't imagine how the Post Office managed to damage the first book) with very minimally "banged corners". I have seen hardback books on the shelves of book stores with more damage!!
I am very pleased with the book and even more pleased with the seller!!!! 10/10
