Quilting Book - The Encyclopedia of Patchwork Blocks, Volume 1 includes blocks that you can make with either Template Set A or Set B. The book contains 390 block possibilities with block sizes ranging from 5 ½-inch to 32-inch. There are 69 designs in 4 to 8 sizes each included in the quilting book: 43 traditional designs like Barrister’s Block, Dutchman’s Puzzle, Flower Pot, Fox and Geese, Gentleman’s Fancy and 26 new block designs that look traditional. The quilting book is a softcover, 8-1/2 by 11-inch book containing 48 pages. Paper patterns are included in the book.

Templates – Template sets A and B are basic geometric template sets. Each set includes 7 clear acrylic templates, laser cut for accuracy using 1/8-inch acrylic. The templates in Set A are based on a 3" (7.6 cm) finished square and its most common component parts. Those in Set B are the same geometric components of a square, but are based on a finished 4" (10 cm) square. Any patchwork block you can make with Set A templates can also be made with Set B; it will just be larger. The versatility of the templates means you can make several block sizes from each set of templates. All templates assume a 1/4-inch seam allowance.
