    Default Block book

    What is your favorite block book? I've been looking at 501 Rotary Cut Quilt Blocks by Judy Hopkins and The New Quick and Easy Block Tool.

    Like fabric. I have many favorite block books. I like M* for easy patterns, when I want to use up my jelly rolls, I like Cosy Quilt Designs, and like Jaybird Quilt patterns by Julie Herman. I have a collection of blocks books but not a favorite.


    Do you belong to a guild? Maybe they have in their library.

    Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

    Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.

    I have the Quick and Easy Block Tool. It's a good reference but you still need to do a little math if you want to make your quilt in a different size than the example. What's nice about this book is that it gives you the option of using a precut instead of yardage.

    Recently I needed to make some different blocks for a sampler quilt and borrowed Lori Holt's Farm girl book. It has a lot of basic blocks in both 6 and 12 inch sizes.

    My favorite is 1000 Great Quilt Blocks a great reference. I also have a quilt block a day perpetual calendar that can be used year after year. Each block in both of these shows a grid and has a small bom of pieces with cut sizes. Sometimes if I see something on pinterest, I look up the block (usually named something else) and know how to make it by referencing these two items.
