No matter your skill level, this book's collection of highly precise quilt block instructions allows you to try your hand at patterns such as simple patchwork, dainty English paper piecing, and professional-looking hand applique and embroidery.

If you're interested in making holiday-inspired quilt block patterns, this book also includes fun designs for patriotic quilt patterns, Christmas quilt blocks, and great seasonal block designs for every month of the year.


In my opinion, 200 Blocks from Quiltmaker Magazine really stands out amongst other quilting books because of how easy it is to find a specific pattern. I especially liked how this book organized all 200 quilt block designs into four categories: applique blocks, pieced blocks, foundation-pieced blocks, and mixed-media blocks. In addition, you can quickly find quilting blocks by your favorite designers by searching the easy-to-read block index.


As if this marvelous mix of techniques and patterns weren't enough, 200 Block from Quiltmaker Magazine also includes full-sized applique and foundation-piecing patterns on a bonus CD.
