Editorial Reviews


Every block project illustrates the block at the top of the page, followed by the pattern and an illustration of the completed pattern. The techniques employed by Anita are easy to follow and for the new quilter, this book may be a useful start. (Fabrications )

If precise cutting and maintaining an accurate 1/4 seam allowance present too much of a challenge, the techniques outlined in this book may be the answer. Patches are pieced together on a single sheet of foundation paper so there is no need to sew multiple units together to assemble one block. The technique is clearly explained with step-by-step diagrams and instructions for sixty traditional 6 blocks, all with patterns available for photocopying or scanning. The quilt gallery gives some good ideas for combining blocks and borders with the use of inspiring colour combinations. This is a neat technique which, once mastered, would widen the options for making accurately pieced traditional blocks on a small scale. (British Patchwork & Quilting )

NO PINS - NO KIDDING! I don't always have the patience for paper-piecing, especially when it comes to assembling the sections of a block, with all those crinkly, hard-to-pin paper edges. Anita's amazing technique uses just one foundation piece and no pinning! Patches cut from templates are lightly glued in place with a fabric glue stick, then stitched and pressed. (Unlike other paper-piecing techniques, Anita's does not use oversized patches, so there's no trimming and less fabric waste.) The amazing part comes next: fold the paper on pre-printed dotted lines and stitch. When you open up the block, all the sections will match perfectly! It's easy to make all the copies you need using the book's full-sized patterns. It's easy to get addicted to the accuracy of Perfect Blocks, and with sixty to choose from, you're bound to find inspiration for your next project. (Quilter's )
