Now in an easy-to-use reference guide size, this updated block tool includes 110 authentic blocks from America's first mail-order pattern company, the Ladies' Art Company. Each block has instructions for 5 sizes, design details, construction diagrams, inspiration blocks, and even a project! The projects will be a breeze with helpful design hints specific to each block, including pairing them with plain alternate blocks, creating secondary patterns, and using precuts. Make the blocks your own with line drawings ready to fill in with your own colours, plus values-only blocks to spur your creativity, then fly through construction with easy rotary-cutting charts, yardage requirements, diagonal measurements, and more.
Connie Chunn first found reprints of the Ladies' Art Company catalogues at a Kansas City Quilt Show. That discovery changed the direction of her life, and she spent more than ten years researching that company and their patterns. Connie first began sewing at age 10, making clothes for her Barbie doll, and when she made her first quilt in 1975, she knew she'd found her niche. She recently began specialising in miniature quilts, and her work has won awards in major quilt shows across the country and has been published several times. Connie lives in Webster Groves, Missouri, with her biggest fan and supporter - her husband, Chris. Together they have 3 grown daughters.
