Best Of The Best Quilts
Author: Leslie Beck
Pulisher: Landauer Books
Publication Date: 2002
Suggested Retail Price: $21.95
Pages: 224

In “Best Of The Best Quilts” by Leslie Beck gives you 36 popular quilt designs, “based on blocks that reflect American History and nature inspried patterns.” There are quilts for all seasons, from a unique snowman, pretty posies, and quilts with spring-like colors, to fall themes and a few patriotic-looking quilts.

Leslie includes some general instructions, quilting terms, and even a little history of quilting and quilt blocks in America. This large 224-page book includes projects easy enough for a beginner to projects that are more advanced.

One of the best parts about this book are the many, many printed designs for hand or machine quilting to help you finish your project. There are some wonderful and unique designs including butterflies, leaves, feathers, spirals, border designs, pineapples, stars, and flowers.

There are so many projects in this book, you will have a hard time picking out your first project. I bet you will be back over and over again to make several more quilts from Leslie Beck’s “Best Of The Best Quilts.”

Look for this book at your favorite quilt shop!
