Those who know something about patchwork or who have already read Petra Tschanter's first booklet (TORCHON-MUSTERTUCH – BLOCKHAUS-BABYBLOCK, SKU 1142) need no explanation of the term “Baby block”. For all others: it refers to a pattern made up of diamond shapes in three different colours or shades of one colour which are put together in such a way that an impression of three-dimensional cubes is produced.

Here the lace is worked on a 60° grid and the diamonds filled with different modern grounds. The result is a variety of combinations of diamonds or cubes. The baby-block diamonds can also be put together to form little stars. The book also contains the Lone Star Twister (the large star on the front of the book), a pattern put together from diamond shapes with a different angle (and so not really a baby block pattern).

Lace prickings, coloured working diagrams of the grounds, notes on materials and techniques are included.
