500 Quilt Blocks

500 Quilt Blocks, which I have co-written with Kerry Green will soon be available in online and bricks and mortar shops around the world.  Kerry and I will also be selling signed copies direct from our blogs as soon as we have them.


Three actual real life advance copies were sent to each of us last week and seeing them made up for the incredible amount of work Kerry and I have done on this book.  


500 Quilt Blocks literally means that.  Not computer drawn blocks.  Actual real life blocks.  


100 main blocks, some classics and some new ones and four variations on each block.


And on top of that there are twenty projects made using the blocks.  From the very very teeny ... 


 ... through small ... 


 ... medium ... 


 ... bigger again ... 


 ... to full-blown quilt size.  


And as if that wasn't enough, we've even included a comprehensive introductory "how-to" section. 


If you get your hands on a copy, we'd love to know what you think and we'd love you to review it on Amazon if you have a spare moment!
