75 Floral Blocks to Crochet Review!

Since I am still a beginner when it comes to crocheting, I asked one of my good friends, Christine, to review 75 Floral Blocks to Crochet. Christine is amazing when it comes to crocheting, her work is beautiful. Here is what she had to say about this brand new book!

What did you think of the book?
Christine: "I am very excited about the new book,  75 Floral Blocks to Crochet.  The book was written by Betty Barnden and published by St. Martin’s Griffin."  
Who wrote the book?
Christine: "Betty Barnden has put together a beautiful collection of blocks patterns in several different shapes.  Her patterns vary in difficulty and are easy to follow.  
What is the layout of the book?
Christine: "Each pattern includes both written instructions and a chart showing each stitch.  The first two chapters  are full of techniques and color planning ideas, that I found  very useful and I will use in other projects not found in this book." 
What project did you make?
Christine: "I chose to make a square with my favorite flower, a daisy.  I have always used written instructions as opposed to a chart."

Christine: "I approached this project thinking I would not use the chart.  I was wrong!  I am now a fan of charts."
What was your experience like as you were making the daisy block?
Christine: "Again, the pattern was easy to follow.  All the information needed is on one page, so it is very easy to read as you go. I'm not sure what I am going to turn my daisy squares into, but I can’t wait to get started on another one!"  

Thank you Christine for reviewing this book! Your daisy block is perfect, I cant't wait to see how you will use it. If you liked her review please let us know and post a comment.
Best Wishes!
