Today's quilters have many demands on their time but still want to create beautiful quilts. By the Block shows the time-poor quilter how to make sophisticated, complex-looking quilts that are each based on an easy-to-assemble block that is used as a design tool. The 18 quilts in the book feature modern fabric choices and clever design, but all use standard quilting techniques that are in virtually every quilter's skill set.Author Siobhan Rogers has designed 18 quilts for the book, ranging from crib- to king-size quilts for beds as well as several large projects suitable for hanging. Four of the quilts have colourway variations that show the versatility of the basic design. The book is organized according to technique such as log cabins, half-square triangles, or curved piecing, but each project offers a new twist on the traditional methods of piecing and constructing quilts. Some of the blocks are over-sized, which help the quilter work efficiently, and the author offers additional time-saving tips. Several of the quilts use pre-cuts such as fat quarters, and some of the projects are perfect for using up fabric in the quilter's stash.Most of the quilt blocks used in the designs are constructed with easy-to-cut blocks requiring nothing more than a rotary cutter and a quilter's ruler; some quilts are created with simple templates that will be included in the book. |Simple, sophisticated quilts sewn ?by the block.?
