Customer Reviews of The Quilter's Album of Patchwork Patterns
unbelievable resource for blocks and their history. can't wait to put together a quilt top using a variety of the blocks - it will be tough to choose . . . only thing i noticed is that on a few pages the pictures of the completed blocks do not match the line drawing of the blocks.
