Introduction

I LOVE QUILTS. I REMEMBER my grandmother making beautiful applique quilts. My mother made quilts out of embroidery blocks and then we would set the quilt frame up in front of our big picture window in the living room and gather together to hand sew the quilting. I’ve always admired the talent and skill it takes to create a quilt, and I was thinking the other day why not use crochet to create the same patterns?

In this book I’ve chosen some basic quilt block patterns and translated them into crochet patterns for you. You don’t need to know any special stiches or techniques. If you know the basics of crochet, then you’ll be able to work these quilt blocks easily. I’ve included a short tutorial of the stitches I used in this book if you need a refresher, or if you’re new to crochet. I hope you enjoy creating crochet quilt blocks and it helps you explore all the creative opportunities crochet can offer.

Stitches Used In This Book

EVEN IF YOU ARE A BEGINNER you can use simple stitches to create stunning projects. In this book I used only the most basic stitches to create the crochet quilt blocks. In this chapter we’ll cover the stitches you’ll need to know to create the blocks in this book.

Chain Stitch

The chain stitch is the base on which most projects are crocheted. Begin by forming a slip knot and placing it on your hook.

Hold the hook in your dominant
