From the pages of Barbara Brackman’s Third Edition of the Encyclopedia of Pieced Quilt Patterns book, BlockBase+ brings over 4,000 quilt blocks to your computer screen. Barbara’s decades of research are available to you in this organized and user-friendly software for Windows® and Mac® computers. Packed with complete publication information for each block, robust search features, exporting, and printing capabilities — it’s the perfect quilting tool for all skill levels! Customers receive both Mac® and Windows® versions of BlockBase+ upon purchasing.

VIEWBLOCKS - Take a “scroll” through 4,264 blocks organized in categories of One Patch, Non-Square, Fans, Wheels, Stars, and many more! Zoom in on a block to see it in full detail! Learn the originally published names for each block and from what source each was first published. Some blocks have multiple names and sources!


FINDBLOCKS - BlockBase+ comes with advanced search features! If you have the Encyclopedia of Pieced Quilt Patterns from Barbara Brackman, you can use the search feature to find a block based on the Brackman ID listed in the book. Or you can search by keyword, source, or category (skill level, piecing style, etc.) to scour the database for blocks based on specific criteria.


PRINTBLOCKS - BlockBase+ is a block-printing powerhouse! Choose to print a picture of the block, templates, rotary cutting chart, or foundation pattern — in any size! Each printing style comes with customizable settings so your printout fits your needs. Enter the desired finished size and seam allowance, then print! Use the interactive print preview to move and rotate pattern pieces on the pages. Add new pages if necessary! Include a 1-inch scale square to ensure your printouts are true to size! Not ready to print and sew? Save your customized preview as a PDF file to come back to later!


EXPORTBLOCKS - Every block can be exported as a low- or high-resolution PNG or JPG file to use in documents, on the web, or just to show your friends the next block you plan to sew!
If you have a fabric cutter, BlockBase+ can export SVG files for use in fabric-cutting machines. Choose the size and save the file for your cutter!

PREVIEWLAYOUTS - Choose a block to view in 7 pre-designed quilt layouts. The selected block will display in a simple click-through dialog so you can preview that block in different settings. You’ll be amazed by the secondary designs created when some of these blocks are repeated in a layout!

Electric Quilt Software is NOT required, but EQ8 owners can link BlockBase+ to their EQ8 if they wish.
