Lots of great block ideas here with several being very scrap-friendly. These are just for patchwork ideas, though -- not for quilting (as in stitching patterns). The image of each block - big and beautiful! - do no show any quilting stitches. Still, it is a wealth of inspiration for patchwork.

LOVE this book. Love that each block has a dedicated two pages. Pictures are big and easy to get an idea of how much work needs to be done. Instructions are great. Would be nice if some of the harder squares had more instruction or perhaps a link to step by step drawings.

All in all, great book for beginner quilters.

A new book, called 'Modern Blocks' will be coming out in a few days. Modern Blocks contains 99 blocks and is compiled by Susanne Woods. Some of the blocks are re-makes of traditional blocks and some are very new. Beginning quilters will find plenty for them to make and advanced quilters will also find some more difficult blocks to make. Except for one non-square block, all the blocks measure 12" finished. This is a really new concept for block books!
