Years ago I saw a quilt book named "Big Block Quilts". Don't know why I didn't buy it then. Problem is, I have no idea who wrote it and only recall that all patterns were for larger than 12" blocks. Does anyone have knowledge of that book? Thank you. Marge L.

I have a book by Cindy Casciato's called Block Explosion these blocks start at 12" to 20". Hope this helps. The book was written in 2004.

Thanks girls. I think this could well be the one. Believe I'll try the library, also.
