Back Cover Information

This unique book features 150 specially designed blocks, perfect for making crib covers, play-mats, and heirloom quilts for your own little one, or as christening and baby-shower gifts that will be treasured forever.

  • Choose from colorful patchwork designs, bright geometric patterns, and pretty pictorial blocks featuring appliqué motifs of teddies, hearts, flowers, letters and numbers. Blocks can be combined to create fun, themed quilts or tessellated for all-over pattern.
  • Pitched at a range of skill levels, each design includes a detailed photograph, recipe of ingredients and templates where required. There are also 'mix-and-match' suggestions for using the blocks on their own or with others in the book
  • All core techniques are demonstrated with step-by-step photographs, from selecting and cutting fabrics and using color to sewing and embellishing the finished quilt.
