The Quilt Block Cookbook is a thoughtfully curated volume of 50 different 12-inch quilt blocks in a variety of complexities and styles. Quilt blocks are like a box of chocolates?each one is a mini euphoria on its own. And when paired with other blocks, they're simply delectable! Most quilt blocks are comprised of basic elements, and you'll learn the ingredients for each. In addition to other 50 blocks and the 7 sampler quilts, quilters will also learn how to use their quilt blocks in many different ways, creating dynamic design repeats by tapping into the limitless possibilities of block-based quilts.
About the author
Amy is a mother of 4, and a passionate writer, quilt designer and instructor. She loves mixing traditional piecing elements with bold modern fabrics, and says that for her, quilting feels like coloring--a crisp folded fat quarter is like a brand-new crayon, fresh and full of possibility. Her work can be seen in The Denver Art Museum, Fat Quarterly Magazine, Australian Quilter Companion's Magazine, American Patchwork & Quilting, and she was nominated for 2014 Instructor of the Year by the International Association of Creative Arts Professionals. A seasoned Craftsy instructor, she is perhaps most well known for her 2012 Craftsy Block of the Month series. This is her second book. You can follow along with her adventures in sewing and motherhood on her blog, www.stitcherydickorydock.com.
