** updated Nov14 to include 12 inch pattern as well as 6 inch pattern **
The paper pieced Eternity Knot quilt block pattern contains clearly labeled foundation pattern sections & complete assembly instructions for both the square and on-point versions. As given, the pattern pieces make 6 inch (15.2 cm) and 12 inch (30.4 cm) blocks. Use the resizing chart to enlarge or reduce the pattern to a wide range of other sizes. You can also plan out your colors before cutting into your fabrics using the coloring page.
This fascinating and ancient endless knot pattern is known by several names, including Infinity Knot and Buddhist knot. Imagine it as a central medallion in a wall-hanging or a table runner. Sew an Eternity Knot quilt block in pale, delicate fabrics for a beautifully symbolic ring-bearer pillow. Or how about on a tote bag for your yoga mat to take to class in style?
Despite its apparent complexity, the Eternity Knot is not difficult to sew. It does, however, require some care and concentration in color placement and to assemble the units correctly. Therefore, it's not recommended as a first project for paper piecing newbies, although advanced beginners should have no trouble.
