For those of you who love the education behind quilting, this book is an absolute must!  I love to collect educational quilt books but particularly books of block patterns, so as each book comes through the office, I keep my eagle eye out for these little gems.  

 

The Quilter's Album of Patchwork Patterns is a large and lovely hard-bound book.  All the blocks are featured in Jinny Beyer's signature dark, rich colors.  The blocks are organized in a very logical fashion based on a grid system, symmetry of design and similarity of design.  You are given each block in color and then a line drawing.  It is particularly helpful to have both block options available if you are intending to create your own quilt design.  And for true artists, there is a section on drafting!  Love it!!!  This book was most certainly a MUST for my library!
