PUBLISHER’S INSIGHTS

It’s so easy to create quilts that repeat a single block–make just one and you’ll have the confidence to fly through the rest of your quilt! Choose from a whopping 57 quilts to piece one block at a time, or make blocks in multiples with quick chain-piecing methods. Star designers including Kim Diehl, Country Threads’ Mary Etherington and Connie Tesene, Pat Sloan, Carrie Nelson, and Jo Morton will help you along the way.

Pair your repeated blocks with plain squares, rotate blocks for a playful spin, or simply line them up row by row. From fun make-in-a-weekend designs to stunning quilts to cherish and pass on, you’ll find the perfect block to repeat in this colossal compilation of quilt patterns!

MY REVIEW

With 57 quilt designs shared in “The Big Book of One-Block Quilts: 57 Single-Block Sensationsthis is a “must have” book that is also a great value.  It is packed with fun designs that have easy to follow instructions that can help you create projects for your home and/or gifts that are fast and easy to make.  Don’t overlook the endless possibilities of using the block designs to mix and match, to create your own unique design too!  Quilting books also make great gifts.    And what about the fun a quilt guild could have with challenges based off of this book?  Total #CreativeGoodness.

I hope you get a chance to check out this book at your local quilt shop, as I think you’ll agree with me that one block quilts do not have to be boring!  Of course, if you don’t see it I hope you’ll let them know you are interested in having them make it available.
