Asteria Block of the Month

Asteria Block of the Month


Beautiful Asteria, Goddess of the Stars, is the inspiration for this beguiling quilt done in shades of blue batiks designed by Tiffany Haynes. Our quilt uses the exact batiks used by the designer!

This is a 9-month Block of the Month program for which you’ll receive the pattern, all the fabrics for the top & binding, plus nine bonus patterns each month that can be made from the block you’ve made for this quilt – that’s a total of ten different quilt patterns!  Made with all straight-line stitching (no curves, no paper-piecing and no applique) this is a wonderful project for a confident beginner.  You will amaze your family and friends with this stunner!

This is an ambitious project that takes nearly 20 yards of fabric for the top & binding.  Each month you'll make a number of 12" blocks (varies from 4 to 8 per month).  And each month you receive bonus patterns for that block - great stash-buster projects!

This quilt finishes at 106” x 106” so it’s a generous size for a queen size bed, and also “workable” for a king size bed – it’s easily made larger all the way around by adding a wider border than shown here.  Cost for the 8-month program (USA subscribers) will be $ 37.00/month, or $ 43.00/month including postage for our Canadian friends.  The first kits start shipping the last week of March 2014 - sign up now to secure your spot!

The instructions recommend using the “Goddess” tool, designed by Tiffany Haynes, or you can use the template included in the 2nd month pattern that you can use instead of the ruler if you prefer.  Rulers can be ordered separately for $ 19.99 and will ship with your 2nd month’s kit (the first month you will need the tool) (Be sure and check your first month's kit right away for a members-only discount on this ruler!).
