By using two quilt blocks, Sue gives the illusion of curves as this graceful pattern glides together to form the lovely Tennessee Waltz Quilt. The "54-40 or Fight" block is a traditional star pattern with a political name that dates back to the 1844 presidential election, concerning a dispute over the Oregon Territory. The companion block, "Snowball" is a long standing, all-purpose block. The blocks pair perfectly to form a new pattern with endless possibilities for design.With guidance on selecting fabrics, and variations on the theme, Tennessee Waltz Quilts guides you step by step through cutting and sewing techniques. Full yardage charts are included for all quilt sizes with a bonus table runner included. While this pattern appears difficult, Sue makes it very easy using Quilt in a Day methods. The book is presented in full color with sample quilts pictured.
