What exactly is the Encyclopedia of Pieced Quilt Patterns?

The Encyclopedia is a reference primarily on how to identify quilt blocks. It is organized like an encyclopedia and a great way to figure out the name of a block. Quilters, quilt historians, and textile enthusiasts will love the detailed information on pattern names and publication sources included with each block. Sewing patterns are not included. Learn more about identifying blocks >>

Over 4,000 blocks to print in ANY size!

The Encyclopedia of Pieced Quilt Patterns is brought to life on your computer with this re-release of The Electric Quilt Company’s top-selling BlockBase+ software. Take a nice “scroll” through all the categories while viewing the blocks in gorgeous colorings, in grayscale values, or as line drawings.

This stand-alone software also lets you easily print rotary-cutting instructions, templates, or foundation patterns, at any size! Whether you owned the previous versions or if you’re completely new to BlockBase, you’ll appreciate the new features added to this version! Learn more about Blockbase+ >>

Use the blocks in your EQ8 designs!

For additional fun, link BlockBase+ to the Electric Quilt 8 quilt design software! (EQ8 software not required.) All BlockBase+ blocks can be used in the EQ8 software, which lets you use EQ’s design tools on the blocks, color the BlockBase+ blocks, and set them into quilt layouts.
