Description

Quilters of all skill levels will love the geometric quilt block patterns offered in this book!

Quilt Block Geometry includes rotary cutting basics followed by block instructions for 13 different quick-pieced quilt blocks, all made from geometric shapes. With its mix of original designs and modern interpretations of traditional patterns, this 32-page booklet offers something for both beginners and experienced quilters.

Each block can be interpreted using endless fabric combinations, so you'll gain a color-shifting kaleidoscope of inspiration. Whether you choose to use the blocks for full quilts, small decor pieces, or even fashion accents is completely up to you. Follow the step-by-step instructions to quickly learn the order of construction and directions for pressing seam allowances, while color diagrams of the blocks show them used in multiples so you can plan out your full quilt as you go along. Let the quilting begin!

The author

Nancy Wick has been quilting for more than twenty years and shares her love of textiles and quilting by teaching machine embroidery and quilting classes. Using her longarm quilting machine, she has also turned her art into a profession and finishes her clients' quilts with beautiful freeform quilting. Driven to create, she cannot imagine a day where fabric, thread, and surface design does not feed her soul. Although her roots are in traditional quilt making, she has branched out to contemporary quilt making over the years. As a former IT professional, she now explores ways to use her fancy, computerized sewing machines in innovative ways. In 2011, her quilt "Heather Feather" won a Viewer's Choice award at the Minnesota Quilter's Annual Quilt Show. More recently, her work has appeared in the 2013 edition of the Fiber Art Almanac and quilting magazines, such as the Autumn 2012 edition of McCall's America Quilts Together. Nancy's professional affiliations include IAPQ (International Association of Professional Quilters), IMQA (International Machine Quilters Association), and SAQA (Studio Art Quilt Associates). www.textiletreasures.cowww.imapiecemaker.com
