Book Review: Simply Sensational Square-agonals® Quilts

Simply Sensational Square-aginals Quilts

Simply Sensational Square-agonals® Quilts
Sandi Blackwell
Landauer; $24.95

If you missed Sandi Blackwell’s earlier book, here’s your chance to learn her easy technique for creating quilts with a diagonal setting without adding setting and corner triangles. She uses a mathematical concept known as “dissection.” When creating your blocks you just cut, rotate and reassemble. In the introduction, Sandi explains the math to you, only it’s not necessary to know as she points out. She provides directions for constructing 12 quilts, which are not on the diagonal, and then she shows you how to make two cuts, rearrange the pieces and then sew them back together to create the diagonal set. The instructions are clear, and if you or your students get thrown by creating setting triangles, give this technique a try.

Look for the book at your favorite book retailer. Here’s a link to Amazon if you would like to learn more about the book.
