Quilt Big: Bigger Blocks for Faster Finishes

In her new book Quilt Big, Jemima Fiendt enlarges traditional quilt blocks to 15", 18" and 24" size. The resulting quilts not only work up quickly, but they also have a Modern vibe suitable for today's home decor trends. Another plus is that the larger blocks are great for bigger and bolder prints!

The book includes 22 quilt block patterns and 17 quilt designs.

What I especially liked about the book is how Fiendt explains how to resize quilt blocks based on their grid. She explains how to enlarge each unit (four-patch, three-patch, and sixteen patch blocks) to create a larger block. 

Fiendt shows how to construct each block with easy piecing techniques. The quilt projects include quilts of various sizes, pillows, and table runners. She believes in making the quilt back look interesting, too, and explains how to make pieced backings with extra blocks and fabrics.

Chapters include:

  • Quilting Basics & Why We Make It
  • Upsizing Quilts and Quilt Blocks
  • Quilt Blocks
  • Quilts and Home D├ęcor Projects
  • Quilt Backings
The book is available in softcover and digital download.

Fiendt's previous book is Weekend Quilting.

I received a free ebook from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for a fair and unbiased review.
