Third Edition
Barbara Brackman


Barbara Brackman’s classic quilter’s resource, the Encyclopedia of Pieced Quilt Patterns, is fully modernized, updated with over 160 new blocks and presented in full colour for the first time in this third edition! All of the 4000+ pieced quilt block patterns found in this book are illustrated with both a line drawing and sample colour suggestions to ensure that you will never run out of inspiration! Quilters, quilt historians and textile enthusiasts will love the detailed information on pattern names and publication sources included with each block pattern.

The book is easy to use in a multitude of ways: look up block designs by name to find a perfectly themed pattern, search by layout and construction information to find the name of the pattern in a historic quilt or just browse the pages until your next quilting project catches your eye!

As a one-stop-shop for quilt pattern identification and ideas for your next quilting project, this fabulous book should be in every quilter’s library!
