This is a quilt for fabric lovers! The pattern for this lovely patchwork was prepared with the gracious assistance of Diana Boston and is illustrated with photographs by Julia Hedgecoe. It includes instructions for sewing the patchwork by hand with traditional methods. It can also be stitched by hand or machine.
Most prefer to do it with English Paper Piecing. It requires only 2 shapes: One Inch Squares and One Inch Honeycombs. Acrylic Templates are a must as what makes the blocks sparkle is the fussy cutting of the fabric. Despite their being just two shapes, it is the way these two shapes are combined that leads to the nearly infinite variety of blocks.
