Simple, sophisticated quilts sewn "by the block." Today's quilters have many demands on their time but still want to create beautiful quilts. By the Block shows the time-poor quilter how to make sophisticated, complex-looking quilts that are based on easy-to-assemble quilt blocks. The 18 quilts in the book feature modern fabric choices and clever design, but all use standard quilting techniques that are in virtually every quilter's skill set. Author Siobhan Rogers has designed quilts ranging from crib- to king-size for beds as well as several large projects suitable for hanging. Four of the quilts have colorway variations that show the versatility of the basic design. The book is organized according to technique such as log cabins, half-square triangles, or curved piecing, but each project offers a new twist on the traditional methods of piecing and constructing quilts. Some of the quilt blocks are oversized, which help the quilter work efficiently, and the author offers additional timesaving tips.

Improvisational piecing methods anchored within traditional quilting designs. Improvising Tradition pairs improvisationally pieced elements with more structured, and perhaps more familiar, quilt patterns to create projects that share a fresh, clean, and modern aesthetic. Author Alexandra Ledgerwood introduces readers to three basic improv piecing techniques: strip sets, piecing improvised strata, and slice and insert, then marries them with traditional quilting designs such as log cabins, coin and bar quilts, and even Hawaiian quilts. By using improvised elements within traditional patchwork quilt designs, Alexandra merges new and old quilting styles into projects that will appeal to a wide range of quilters. Eighteen original and modern quilting projects combine the beauty and familiarity of traditional techniques with the fresh, fun spirit of improvised quilting.
