Dutch Delight Single-Block Quilt

Single-block quilts are fast and fun. Select your favorite block (or blocks) and make one, or make a few for a small grouping with a big impact. Framed or unframed, they are sure to add a simple but elegant statement to any room décor. Keep the quilts, or give them away as gifts to someone special.

    Thank you for this free pattern and insights on this book. I’m not familiar with it and it does sound like a great book. I love mini quilts, quilts with flowers and cheerful quilts. This definitely looks like a book that covers all those categories, as well as the ability to make quilts that are appreciated gift items. Can’t wait to check this book out!

    I love those, they would be perfect for my daughter.
    She has been bugging me to make her some art pieces for her place and that is something she would love. I will have to look for that book in the store.
