Here's what they said about their booklet:

"This information-packed booklet is full of SUPER block ideas you can stitch up in no time! The quilting experts at Keepsake Quilting with Marianne Fons and Liz Porter share with you some of their favorite ideas for quick-cut quilt blocks and a Revolutionary new technique for cutting triangles! Color photos of each block provide inspiration, cutting instructions for three block sizes let you be your own designer, and piecing diagrams guide you through block assembly. You'll get 34 different blocks in 3 sizes —
THAT'S OVER 100 PATTERNS! The best part? This booklet is FREE when you sign up for our newsletter!"

So I checked out the offer. They simply want your email addres. No credit card. And in exchange, you immediately receive access to a darling 16-page booklet with patterns in 6, 9 and 12 inches. Then the newsletter will arive periodifically. (Those I have yet to evaluate.)  But hey, a free booklet of patterns is certainly worth a try, especially when it is from our friends at Fons and Porter. There are some great color selections and a few rotary cutting ideas.
