Stack of Books Quilt Block

Ready for a fun block? This Stack of Books Quilt Block is perfect for a back to school quilt, for a reading quilt, a graduation quilt … there are so many fun ways to use a Stack of Books Quilt Block! Today I’m including it as part of the Quilt Block Mania series. Several dozen other pattern designers and I are all sharing free 12-inch quilt blocks with a “Back to School” theme. And while this year’s “back to school” looks a lot different than those of the past, these blocks can still be put together to make a great teacher appreciation quilt, administrator appreciation quilt, or auction quilt to support your PTA – because even though most schools here in the USA have gone virtual, the teachers, staff, and most PTAs are still working hard to support our kids!

Quilting Your Block

I have turned my block into a table topper, using one of the simple patterns in the Ten 12″ Quilt Block Projects pattern, and I’ve started quilting it with some free motion quilting.

If you’ve always wanted to try Free Motion Quilting, then you should check out this fun “What Quilting Motif are You?” quiz! If you enter your email at the end, you’ll get a video that shows you how to quilt that design! Super cool, right?

Precision Piecing Tips

You may have noticed some small pieces in this quilt block. If you want to know how I got my precision piecing done on this Stacked Books Quilt Block, I’ll tell you the answer: Spray Starch! In this video I show you how easy it is to starch fabrics, and I answer the most asked spray starching questions…

    Please let me know how to get the pattern. PS: I love the block!

  4. I like the block. I did the signup to get the block and it said it would be sent to my email, but I haven’t received it. It has been a few hours and so I tried again and still haven’t received it. I have checked my spam folder and it isn’t there either.
