1000 Quilt Inspirations

Have you seen this book yet?

1000 Quilt Blocks book

It is chock full of quilt blocks and details for one to peruse. It’s by no means definitive (the quilt world is just too too huge for that), but there’s plenty to catch the eye. The book is divided into sections: Traditional, Modern, Pictorial Art Quilt, and Abstract Art Quilt. The traditional section sometimes leans towards the arty, and I doubt any hard core Modern quilter would see themselves in the Modern section. Really, the sections are there to add a little structure, and that’s OK. Given that author Sandra Sider is an art quilter, I’m not at all surprised at the leanings of the book. That’s also OK. It’s a book of inspiration, and it provides plenty.

I have three pieces in the book — all from the Twelve by Twelve Colorplay series. Fellow Twelves Brenda Gael Smith and Deborah Boschert have work in the book too!

It’s a nice resource when you want to browse for inspiration. The book can be found on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, or through the publisher themselves.
