The galaxy of mid-century modern design and the wide universe of quiltmaking techniques collide in the Atomic Starburst Sampler Quilt.

Star blocks are a perennial patchwork favorite. This sampler takes them in 12 stellar new directions drawn from the mod-chic starbursts of the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s—make them all, or pick and choose. Explore a dozen innovative block designs brought to life with traditional quiltmaking techniques, including:

- paper piecing
- English paper piecing
- curved piecing
- raw-edge appliqué
- bias-tape appliqué
- needle-turn appliqué
- hand embroidery

and more! Along the way, you’ll learn about mid-century designers and the period work that inspired these blocks, from architecture and logos to match­books and game-show sets.

Each of the 12 block patterns features:

- large photo of the block
- detailed written and illustrated instructions
- suggestions for quilting designs
- full-size templates

Finished quilt measures 44" × 58". This pattern is aimed at intermediate quilters who have some experience in a variety of quiltmaking techniques. Pattern instructions and templates are laid out on 8½" × 11" letter-sized pages for ease of printing.

The design is bigger then I originally thought. My sister-in-law loves peacocks so going to make her and her daughter matching quilts.
