These three authors, Debra, Jean, and Anne, have made fabulous ensembles of 60 projects inside this terrific book dedicated to knitting blocks for Quilts and Afghans. Many people can be overwhelmed with the concept of having to knit an entire quilt using super long needles and messing up stitch counts along the way. Instead, they have taken a different approach in blocking out an afghan into small blocks that are sewn together afterwards. The afghan can appear like quilts when all is said and done.

You may have seen on TV about people knitting with fabric instead of yarn. Some people cut their leftover clothing or even go out and buy bolts of fabric to create their masterpieces. Other people are so bold, they just guess how thick they want the quilt and spend time tearing up fabric so that there are fibers randomly protruding from edging to give it a rustic touch. If that's not to your taste, you can even buy fabric that is on a roll already so you don’t have to cut or tear anything.

This book can be perceived as a recycler’s dream come true. Using the blocking techniques, it allows people to be use up those dreaded yarn ends that always stack up in our storage bins. Create either a perfectly color matched afghan for yourself or take a chance and use up the yarn ends, or even mix and match between new and leftovers. There is creativity waiting to be unleashed inside this book.
