This is such an excellent book! Truly if you're looking for a quilting book that encompasses many different styles, sizes and patterns, this is the ONLY book you'll ever need! Worth it's weight in gold!

This is such a great book - it has the exact picture of a single block. The cutting chart is offered in six easy to read different size categories. The only guess work is to figure out the sewing order. A must have book.

Buy this recipe book! Oct. 4 2008
By Bridget Forestcats - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is actually all three of Judy Hopkins previous books combined for the cost of only one!!! (Around the Block, Around the Block Again, & Once More Around the Block) This is NOT a how to book. You need to KNOW how to SEW and have basic quilting background. These patterns are meant to be ROTARY cut! Here you will find a color example of the block and then you will have a diagram that shows the basic construction in MINIMAL detail but the most excellent part is that you are given VARIOUS size blocks. You need 6" blocks fine, 12" blocks no problem. There is a HUGE reason why the original books are all sold out and selling for greater than the cover, it is because the patterns are solid. You need this book, use it for centers, swaps, borders, and you won't be disappointed!

Never run out of ideas Dec 21 2008
By Barbara Rhoades - Published on
Format: Paperback
Have you ever been stymied on what block to use to make a quilt? Do you have a special fabric but no pattern to use? Then 501 ROTARY-CUT QUILT BLOCKS is just the book for you. My guild makes charity quilts and the gals are always looking for a different pattern to use so t his book will get a lot of use by us.

It starts out with a six page explanation on how to use the block patterns and jumps right in with a block called Boy's Nonsense to explain how to read the charts which have several block sizes. This is a nice feature as you can "grow" or "shrink" a quilt to your needs. The charts also have a "try this" line which gives you an alternative colorway suggestion. Cutting variations, tips for specialty blocks, making multiple blocks and calculating yardage is also included in this section.

The next 17 pages are colored pictures of each block in the book. They each show the block name and the page it can be found on. The last 9 pages are the templates needed to create the blocks. The rest of the book shows the charts for making each block. This includes a black and white picture of the block, a block that shows the letter templates used to create the block and an exploded picture of the block which shows you how to assemble it.

I will put this book in my rolling sewing tote so I am sure to have it each time our guild meets. Get one for yourself or buy one for a quilting friend. You or they won't be disappointed.

I've used Judy Hopkins "Around The Block" books for many years. I can always find a block to inspire me and I know that I can count on the accuracy of the directions. When asked at a guild meeting which book I'd keep if I had to get rid of all my quilt books except one,without hesitation I said it would be one of the "Around The Block" books. I couldn't choose which one. Now, with all three books in one, the answer is clear. I highly recommend 501 ROTARY-CUT QUILT BLOCKS.

This book belongs in every quilter's library. Having a bumper collection of Judy's blocks all in one place is a great convenience. You'll never run out of inspiration with this book on hand.

Do You Need 501 Quilt Blocks - Yes! March 9 2010
By Stephanie Bullock - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a great reference book for the quilter, especially if you like to design your own quilts. I wouldn't be without it. You may have made a number of the blocks in the book, but the directions give you all the cutting measurements for all different sizes of each block, from 4" squares all the way up to 12", 13" or 14" squares, and I find this so helpful when I am trying to fashion my own quilt design. Sure beats having to do all that math myself!

My only problem with the instructions is that they are basic cutting and piecing instructions and do not incorporate the "short cut" techniques that have been developed over the years for making half-square triangles, flying geese, and the like. I am an experienced quilter, so I can substitute those short cuts when I recognize they can be used - and they certainly making piecing easier - but someone newer to quilting would not be able to do this.

Judy's book deals with the blocks only. Unlike Marsha McCloskey's "Block Party"(which gives instructions for 120 different blocks but only the 9" square size),
she does not go on to give suggestions and instructions on how to put a block together to form several different designs or how to put different blocks together to form designs. I have both books and use them interchangeably. This really works great for me. If you can have yards and yards of fabric in your stash, you certainly can have two "block" books, and I recommend it.
