Grandma's Best Full-size Quilt Blocks
Pieces of the Past for Today's QuilterBook - 2002
Quilts hold many secrets. They tell us about the women who made them. They reveal history and link us to our past. Quilting is a time-honoured art-form kept alive by the people who carry the tradition through generations. The book was created in honour of this never-ending passion. Dozens of antique quilts, all shown in lovely photographs, are the inspiration for the 70 full-size block patterns included in this book. You will also be delighted with: Quilting history from 1830 to 1950; Full-size patterns, yardage, and instructions to reproduce 10 exquisite antique quilts; 70 bed quilt diagrams; Over 150 block and border colour options; As a grand finale, there is a chapter devoted specifically to borders -- patterns and ideas for finishing your beautiful quilt.
