Library Journal Review

The classic combo of red and white takes center stage in this collection of blocks and quilts from master quiltmaker and quilt historian Pumphrey (Mountain Mist Historical Quilts). Most of the blocks are based on historic quilts from the 19th and early 20th century, when Turkey red fabric was popular among quilters-but there's nothing quaint or retro about the timeless designs, which include both intricate appliqué and bold geometrics. Familiar blocks such as Ohio star, snowball, and drunkard's path are presented alongside the more obscure such as princess feather and carpenter's square. Cutting and assembly directions are included, as are a series of quilt projects that can be created using the blocks in the book. VERDICT Classic and contemporary meet in this fine collection that will appeal to a variety of quilters. © Copyright 2018. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
