Pattern Details

Paper pieced stars in the centers combine with gentle curves to create a show-stopping quilt that makes accuracy easy! Solids combined with bright prints create a clean modern look, but this quilt would be equally lovely in an array of traditional fabrics. The design is inspired by the traditional Robbing Peter to Pay Paul quilt block. The pattern includes 2 sizes, a 2x2 block mini quilt and a 5x5 block lap-sized quilt. This pattern assumes knowledge of basic paper piecing techniques. For a free downloadable tutorial visit www.flyingparrotquilts.com/tutorials.
