Not only does 200 Blocks From Quiltmaker Magazine include patterns for 200 beautiful 12" appliqué, pieced, foundation-pieced and mixed-media blocks from today's top designers, it also comes with a CD filled with all of the appliqué patterns, embroidery designs and patterns needed for piecing, foundation piecing or English paper piecing—and they're all full size.
There's something for everyone, from simple to challenging blocks in a nice mix of classic and contemporary designs, such as a hummingbird sipping nectar from a flower, a "Sweet Dreams" redwork and a variety of patriotic and holiday motifs. The book also provides sample settings to join multiple 12" x 12" blocks to make twin-, queen-, king- and lap-sized quilts.

At first I was disappointed that I couldn't find all of the patterns on the CD. Then I figured out that the pieced patterns didn't NEED to be on the CD. They really should point that out in the introduction or somewhere. Turns out all the ones that are on the CD are listed under the patterns. Once I got that understood I fell in love with this book, it may be my favorite quilting book, and I have plenty. I particularly love the ability to open these patterns up on my computer, and I can even make them any size I want with my draw program. I am making a queen quilt now using one of the patterns, which I modified slightly. The patterns are just beautiful, almost a coffee table book. I highly recommend it for anyone with a computer and printer.

Lots of patterns to choose from. Easy to print out from CD. Find the pattern, print it out and to the sewing machine.
A good thing about this book are lots of quilt patterns to choose from.
A bad thing is all the quilt patterns are on a CD, so you have to
have access to a computer and a printer.
