There cannot be a quilter on the planet that would not want this book. Subtitled 'The only quilt block compendium you'll ever need', with 500 blocks, it is no idle claim. Quilters of all levels and skills will find plenty of use. There are five themed chapters: blocks for everyone; simple blocks; intermediate; shapes and pictures and patterns. Each block is photographed (this is a small book so photos are small), has written instructions and block variations. Templates are included but need enlarging. The introduction shows all the techniques you need. There are also twenty projects to get you started using the blocks. I love the broken dishes tea towel. The Amish quilt doorstop and tablet case also attractive. Economy Square is one of my favourite blocks, I also like Tumblers, Flying Geese, Ohio Star, Windmill, Diamond Square, Christmas Tree and Wild Goose Chase to name a few. You'll find favourites such as pinwheel, log cabin and nine patch. The Stars, Circles, Curves and Flowers section impressed me the most, with Daisy, Electric Fan, Friendship Star and Pictures in the Stairwell as well as other, more contemporary designs. The variations are also very useful. Neat and compact, you can take this book to quilt classes or use it at home. I would have preferred a book that lays flat.-Yarnsandfabrics.co.uk/crafts This book contains enough quilt blocks to keep you quilting for a lifetime! There is a great combination of classic and more modern blocks, plus for many of the blocks they show you a few different variations. The actual book itself is the size of a quilt book which is a quirky idea. At only 6 inches square it is very portable so easy to take to quilting classes and groups. The downside of this is that the text and some of the photos are pretty small and most the templates require enlarging. There is an introductory section with basic quilting and piecing techniques as well as a guide to the abbreviations used in the book. For each block there is a photo of the finished block, cutting instructions for the fabrics and details on how to piece them. There are also 10 projects included in the book to give you ideas of how you can incorporate the blocks into projects other than quilts. Projects include a book bag, pot holder, gadget case, needlebook, craft bag and thread basket. A useful reference guide for quilters.-The Sewing Directory

5.0 von 5 Sternen Wonderful and inspiring book 22. Oktober 2013
Von T. Jackman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
This book is much smaller than I expected height-wise, but it contains a ton of useful information. In my opinion the best part about the book is that there are alternate ideas for the blocks which are very inspiring. The photography is beautiful and the author's used fun, modern fabrics for the blocks. I definitely recommend this to anyone interested in quilting, it has something for everyone!

5.0 von 5 Sternen If you're looking for a book of quilt blocks, this is the one you should buy... 24. November 2013
Von CNQuilter - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
If you're looking for a block book filled with blocks made with gorgeous "modern" fabrics and lots of options, this is the book you've been waiting for. It's the book l've been waiting for!

I have a dozen books filled with quilt blocks - pieced, applique, rotary cut, templates, easy, complicated and everything in between. The books range from those with simple black-and-white hand-drawn sketches - Barbara Brackman's Encyclopedia - to computer-generated colored renditions of classic blocks - Maggie Malone's 5500 Quilt Block Designs. Some books give cutting instructions for one size of block - Marsha McCloskey's Block Party - while others come with options for various sizes of blocks - Judy Hopkins' Rotary Cutting block books. They're all wonderful resources.

But 500 Quilt Blocks by Lynne Goldsworthy and Kerry Green is the first book that factors in the way that most of us like to work - trimming down triangles, cutting from scraps, mixing up value placements to change the look of a block, and mixing up the parts of the blocks to create a variety of blocks from the same basic units.

The title of the book states that it is "the only compendium of quilt blocks you'll ever need". Okay, if you're going to have just one block book, this would be the one to have, especially if you're into the colorful, cool fabric being used by today's "modern quilters". Even if you're not, I still think this book is an absolutel must-have for every quilter's library if for no other reason than no good library can have just one block book. 500 Quilt Blocks is colorful, contemporary and thorough - it includes simple blocks and complicated blocks, wonky modern blocks, English Paper Piecing, foundation paper-piecing and curved piecing. The small projects are perfect for experimenting with a block, trying something new or just using up some wonderful scraps.

I found myself going through it back to front, front to back, over and over again, just to see if I'd missed something. And to look at the yummy fabrics - those alone will inspire any quilter to head to their workroom... and the quilt shop. So do I recommend this book? Affirmative! And do I think you should buy it? Absolutely! In fact, stop reading this and order it already! :)

5.0 von 5 Sternen Small BUt Mighty 20. Oktober 2013
Von Mary Miller - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I received 500 Quilt Blocks by Lynne Goldsworthy and Kerry Green a few days ago and have hardly taken my nose out of it since. This book is an encyclopedia of all the quilting blocks in the quilting lexicon and is truly the only book on the subject that anyone will ever need. It is such fun to browse through and smile at the names of many of the blocks and wonder how they came to be.
The book is set up in a very no nonsense manner. A picture of the block with fabric requirements and a brief explanation of construction. The brevity is most welcome!
The very best part of this book, though is its diminutive size. This little fellow will get lost on any bookshelf, so the proper place for it is right on my sewing table where it can be used and re-used for many years to come!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Very Small Print 30. Dezember 2013
Von ShilTheGirl - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
The content in this book is excellent. Be prepared for the size of the book. It is 6 x 6. The print is very small. If you have excellent vision you will love it. Glad I got the book but wished it was bigger so the print could be a bit larger. I would have been happy to pay a higher price for a book that would be easier to read. I would recommend the book, just heads up about the print.

I especially liked the variations included for each block. It opens up a greater range of sewing possibilities. It is well-written and graphically laid out beautifully.
