    Is it the one that has the mini baltimore album in it?
    It's a great book. ALL the blocks are 4 inches, but can be sized up to make them bigger
    If so, I have that book....had to pay full price :(
    But, GREAT find for you! :) :)

    I hope it shows how to construct the block. I like the visuals.....what each part of the blocks looks like and how to measure and cut...then assemble. Now that is a GOOD book!

    Then on the other hand, you can find "anything" on the internet if those particulars are not included in the book!

    My sister gave me that book, and I love it! Good find. The best I did was find a Taste of Home cookbook - brand new but 2 years old for $2, at the hospital sponsored thrift store! I'd gone to take a few things to donate, and I could hear that book calling to me from across the room. Bargains are the BEST!

    My local library sells books whenthey are cleaning house and I got some old BH&G books and they are wonderful. The colors in the samples are outdated but the techniques are valid! I Love a bargain!
