|A Fan-Favorite in its Third Edition!
Barbara Brackman's classic Quiilters resource, the Encyclopedia of Pieced Quilt Patterns, is fully modernized, updated with over 160 new blocks, and presented in full colour for the first time in this third edition! All of the 4,000+ pieced quilt block patterns found in this book are illustrated with both a line drawing and sample colour suggestions to ensure that you will never run out of inspiration! Quilters, quilt historians, and textile enthusiasts will love the detailed information on pattern names and publication sources included with each block pattern.
The book is easy to use in a multitude of ways: look up block designs by name to find a perfectly themed pattern, search by layout and construction information to find the name of the pattern in a historic quilt, or just browse the pages until your next quilting project catches your eye! Combine the book with BlockBase software (sold separately) to easily design and print custom templates, rotary charts, or foundation patterns for any of the blocks in the book.
What exactly is the Encyclopedia of Pieced Quilt Patterns?
The Encyclopedia is a reference primarily on how to identify quilt blocks. In the intro to the book, Barbara explains that she used 20th century magazines and articles, mainly between 1920 and 1950, and mostly from the midwest, to attempt to put a name with a block and when it was first published. This book is the result of all her research. It is organized like an encyclopedia and a great way to figure out the name of a block. With SO many blocks to look at in this book, its also a very inspirational tool for designing your own quilts.
As a one-stop-shop for quilt pattern identification and ideas for your next quilting project, this fabulous book should be in every Quiilters library!
