Great Book

Oh look ..yet another group of cut sqs for some quilt blocks.
A pretty heart block!!
I was going to do this one for my Mama but ran out of time.:-(
I need to do this one and call it Maggie's Heart.
I did work her up a fast machine appliqued heart one to take on her many trips to hospital.
I did the Pat Sloan freebie Love in the Air, think it was called.
Was a good while back.

Pat Sloan may still have it on her site on the free pattern page .
I am a Pat Sloan fan so do check out her site while there.
I have a load of her books and a few patterns too!

This is the book the unfinished one above is in!
I bet many libraries have this one.
1994 Published
Better Homes and Gardens 501 Quilt Blocks
A Treasury of Patterns for Patchwork and Applique

This book has so many of the still very popular block patterns being used today using modern fabrics .

Are these lil gals below not the cutest of cuteness!?!?!

Now the kicker...most of these blocks are small 4 inches or so.
Some projects have a few bigger ones.
What I do is enlarge them to what size I want and go.
I am sure those with Elec Quilt programs or other quilt design PC software could do it even easier!
I do recommend finding this book.
You could then design your own quilts small or large using the blocks and fabrics of your choice.

Sorry if you have received any SPAM mail from a Spammer DISA in a foreign language from my blog.
Not anything I can do about it. I reported the spammer's blog to Google.
Thanks so much!


  1. I love Pat's patterns, and I am doing one of hers now called The Streets of Ireland.
    Sorry about the trouble with the spam mail!

  2. Crikey! Lola you've been a busy girl. I'm just catching up on all your posts. I have the BHG 501 Blocks book and it's quite handy to have about. Your Pat Sloan hearts are adorable. She is an amazing designer. Ann :)
