Circles and Stars PDF quilt pattern is an original design that uses an old technique called English Paper Piecing, (EPP). It's a great method for accurately piecing patchwork quilts, using up left over fabric scraps* and slowing life down a bit while enjoying the relaxation of hand piecing! (Also makes a great project to put in your bag and take along when you are out and about!)
With this pattern you will learn how to hand-piece individual blocks using EPP, and how to stitch those blocks together to create a small 20" x 20" quilt top. (Just add more blocks if you wish to make a larger quilt.) Quilt pattern is fully, (and colorfully) illustrated with step-by-step instructions and includes helpful color photographs as well. Written in a clear and friendly conversational tone, with helpful tips throughout for your sewing success!
Skill level: Confident beginner, (ready to advance) and up. By the way, if you are thinking that this pattern looks too challenging... believe it or not this is my first EPP quilt! I learn by doing and I break everything down in easy to follow steps so you can easily learn, too!

I am thoroughly enjoying making this quilt. I can't wait to see it all put together. I am using Japanese fabrics in shades of purple and mauve for the main pieces and cream with fine gold outlines on the background pieces. It is very portable and, therefore, good to take on trips and to quilting class.
Absolutely stunning pattern and colors! The instructions (20 pages) are really a complete course in English paper piecing and the best I have seen!
Thanks Victoria for an amazing PDF pattern I just purchased from you. First of all I love it, I love the simple design with your own color and touch that added the charm to the quilt. I'm looking forward to selecting the fabric and start making it.
Very clear and a beautiful pattern!! Thanks Victoria!
Eager to try the pattern, have purchased shot cottons for my first stab. Thanks.
