Quilt Block Library

Pin It
Untitled Drawing (15)

I am a visual person.  I want to see the block, and click right on the "how-to".  Lately, I've spent a lot of time "aimlessly" searching flickr, etc for ideas and the right tutorials.  If I'd had a list like this, I could cut down my surf time and get out my rotary cutter!  Now I can start brainstorming for my next quilt.....

This is my Quilt Block Library!  It's a list of some of my favorite blocks, linked right to the tutorials.  Hopefully, this is an ever-growing list....

  1. I love your block library; please keep adding to it! And your tutorials, too! It's like a recipe box on your website instead of my computer where my bookmarked pages and files get lost or too hard to find.

  2. This is such a neat idea. I save things to my computer, but this is a cool visual that I truly need. I have to start something like this on my blog, for those moments of inspiration.

  24. My family has quilted for generations. My great grandmother passed away at 98 and enjoyed quilting with her daughter and grand daughters. This site is something I will be able to share with my 84 year old grandmother tomorrow after a doctors appointment. She has displayed quilts at the Ohio State Fair and makes every new baby in our family a quilt. She still sits with her hoop and hand quilts them while watching tv in the evening. The blocks on here are beautiful, fun and bring back memories of quilts in our family. I have yet to make a quilt but now I am feeling quite inspired thanks to your hard work, inspiration and many any blocks to choose from. Nice to see you are also fromthe Buckeye State. HAPPY QUILTING!

  36. Saw this link on Pinterest and have to comment. A large number of your blocks are some of the same that I have liked, bookmarked, copied, etc. in the past and I love how you have combined them all in one location with a visual so that you don't have to comb through a lot of information to even see what it is. Thanks for doing all the hard work and making it available.

  39. THIS page is AWESOME!! very visual also. Actually love your whole blog! I love your modern blocks and prints. I started peacing a Grandmothers Flower Garden quilt when I was pregnant with my middle son. He is now 23 and I have yet to finish it. I played with some other quilting as a SAHM but have not sewn in years since entering the workforce. I suddenly have a creative bug that needs an outlet and i think some of these block may be my answer. Thanks!
