As the title reflects this book provides patterns and instructions for 34 quilt blocks. The book contains pictures of finished quilts constucted with the highlighted quilt block. But this book is primarily a technique book and about half the book is devoted to various topics such as choosing colors, piecing squares together and adding boarders. I thought the author did a particular good job of providing information on how to select colors. Because many of the quilts use the same quilt square throughout, the author uses color to add beauty and variety to each quilt.

My mother was given this book when it was first published and it was always a great resource for us. Then as my passion for quilting grew, she bought me my own copy. I have advanced in my quilting as such that I no longer need this book, but it is great for the basics!
