Riassunto: The Quilter's Album of Blocks & Borders is the most comprehensive, most usable collection of patchwork designs ever assembled. Each of the over 750 geometric designs, illustrated and categorized for easy identification and drafting, is drawn in clear, artistic detail, and there are scores of tips for innovative uses of fabric, many of which are graphically demonstrated. In this book, patterns are not only indexed by their various names but also organized according to their type of design. The categorization, such as fourpatch or seven-patch or hexagonal, is the revolutionary system that Mrs. Beyer set out in her first and instantly popular book, Patchwork Patterns. In this companion volume, she has compiled and categorized more than 1,000 quilt names. And she has included a handy seethrough plastic insert printed with a grid of each of the eight categories. By laying this grid sheet over the drawing of a block, you can easily match block to grid and thus see how to draft it. With this book Jinny Beyer becomes the first author to pay more than glancing attention to border designs; there are 145 included here. She also reveals the secrets of her own innovative and subtle use of fabrics, the hallmark of her prize-winning work. Her clear explanations and ingenious illustrations can teach more about combining fabrics than years of formal classes. In her effort to make her Album as comprehensive as it is well organized, Mrs. Beyer spent countless hours searching for the oldest published source for each pattern. Her sense of debt to generations of quiltmakers who have gone before ? usually unnamed and unsung ? is so deeply felt that she has dedicated this book to them. A truly useful dictionary, a pioneer attempt to document historical patterns, a survey of border designs plus an exciting short course on the effective use of fabrics -- all these contributions make The Quilter's Album of Blocks & Borders a must for anyone who creates with geometric design.
