100 Any-Size Applique Blocks Book Review

By Linda Causee
Included CD with block sizes 3” to 8”



This book was created for Leisure Arts by the Creative Partners. For more information about Creative Partners, Click here the Creative Partners website.

To say Linda Causee is a prolific quilt book writer would be a total understatement. I have just popped over to Linda Causee’ s website and I have counted 39 books that she has authored or co-authored. Wow, that’s impressive Linda!

I received a complimentary copy of this publication, 100 Any-Size Appliqué Blocks and have had to chance to not only read through the book but actually put the CD to work. I was very pleasantly surprised by how well the patterns print off. And most importantly, they are exact! The blocks are available from three inches to eight inches, which is pretty generous. There are five appliqué genres, Flower Blocks, Heart Blocks, Wreath Blocks, Basket Blocks and Tropical Blocks (typically Hawaiian).

The patterns are simply beautiful and there’s a huge variety. (100 of them to be exact).

What I particularly like about this publication is that Linda has included an enlargement table if you wish to have your patterns bigger than eight inches. In fact the table can give you the enlargement percentage up to sixteen inches.

Each of the appliqué categories has a suggested quilt layout and cutting directions. So as a bonus you not only receive 100 quilt block patterns, but 5 quilts to make, with full instructions and diagrams.

As always, Leisure Arts has got a winner here. For the new and more advanced appliqué needleworkers, this book is a must for your craft library.

Other books by Linda Causee include:
  • 365 Foundation Quilt Blocks
  • Freezer Paper Quilting
  • 24 Hour Baby Quilts (see the link to my review for this book at the bottom of this page)
  • Quilts A to Z
  • Blue Ribbon Quilts
  • 400 Quilt Blocks to Sew in 20 Minute
    And many more (39 to be precise)
