fff Field Guide to Quilts
 A place to explore quilt blocks and quilting

Welcome to our site! We welcome quilting newbies, wannabes, and experts alike.

We've always wanted this site to be a resource for finding blocks on the spot, whether you're at an antique shop, a county fair, or a quilting bee.

Becoming mobile-friendly, then, is a priority for us. This is the first page we've changed.

Thank you, everybody, for sticking with us as we make our website mobile-friendly. Please know that whatever glitches you see are temporary. We appreciate your patience.

All the new pages have addresses ending in .shtml. All the old page addresses end in .html. If you land on a page that's missing or looks weird, you can delete the s and go back to the old page.

The "s" stands for "server." It means that part of the page -- the menu in this case -- comes from a file that lives on the hosting company's computer. If we change the menu, it changes on all .shtml pages at once.

Today's block count:
Soon to be 690!
What's New:

We drew up ten blocks from the Ladies Art Company -- mostly from 1897 -- but when we researched them, we were besieged by their younger cousins, specifically the second Savannah Beautiful Star and Sylvia's Choice. We want to share them with you!

So, mobile users: We've finished only 681 blocks so far -- including those in the column at right. The rest are on the way. That's right, mobile users: You're seeing both what's new and what's next.
