Hooray! the Eclipse quilt pattern is finally available. Please visit my pattern shop here on this site, or Craftsy to purchase. I am extra excited about sharing this quilt…it is probably my favorite of at least the past year. I usually have a hard time choosing favorites among my quilts, but I just love how this quilt turned out… the combination of stars and curves, the colors and fabrics, and the amazing quilting by Judi Madsen.
The pattern includes full size templates for cutting the curved shapes, they are all pieced with no appliqué and no foundation/paper piecing. You can choose between two sizes: a baby or wall hanging size or a twin/large throw quilt. It would be really easy to adjust to the size you want by making more or fewer blocks. I think it would make a tremendous table runner by just making a single row of blocks. I also made a mini version, you can see that Here (still need to get that quilted!)
I know it looks complicated to make, but the construction is actually really basic and it’s broken down into easy steps. The pdf pattern includes live links to this site, including my curved piecing tutorial, basting and binding tutorials, so you can click directly to those as you sew from your tablet or computer. I really hope to see your Eclipse quilts! Choose a favorite collection of fabrics (you only need a fat eighth of each print) and sew with me!
