In addition, sewing the pieces on a paper or fabric foundation ensures that they will all meet perfectly. Experienced quilters will find this method ideal for making quicker and easier projects than is possible using traditional techniques. And with 365 beautiful blocks to choose from - including holidays, special events, seasonal motifs, and classic patterns - you can design a varied assortment of your own beautiful quilts.

It’s quiltmaking made as simple as paint-by-numbers! With a new method called foundation piecing, you just follow a numerical sequence to stitch fabric onto a foundation. Even the smallest pieces meet precisely, quickly, and accurately. With 365 projects, you could make one every day of the year. They’re organized month-by-month, so you could make a patriotic quilt with the July blocks; a Thanksgiving quilt in November; a Christmas quilt with the December blocks; or pretty floral quilts with each month’s flowers. (There are also some whimsical designs such as the yellow submarine that marks the day the Beatles came to America.) Photos of quilts made with blocks for each month accompany the complete instructions for the entire foundation piecing process.
