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.

Quick and easy pattern with easy to follow directions. I made this quilt in a day. I used a jelly roll and the leftover fabric from the sets will be enough to make binding...though I will have to take the sets apart to do so. Still very much an instant gratification quilt!

This was an easy download. The pattern looks straightforward. We love and raise peacocks.

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