Sew along with Eleanor to learn new methods for quick traditional quilt blocks. Step by step illustrations and instructions are offered for strip ipecing, applique, flying geese patches, half-square triangles and quarter square patches. "El"ementary offers two sampler layouts, a square sampler "on point," and a vertical sampler. Once you know the techniques, you can make a larger quilt using the newly aquired skills. Full yardage and cutting charts are provided for all five quilt sizes for all five block patterns. To finish your quilt, learn about adding outside borders, folded borders and nine-patch corners. Instruction is also given for preparing the quilt backing, layering the quid, pinning, machine quilting and binding.
