Let the night sky be the inspiration for your next quilts with this collection of popular Constellation patterns from designers and Fancy Tiger Crafts founders Amber Platzer Corcoran and Jaime Jennings. Published together for the first time, this block collection also includes an exclusive Orion pattern as well as eight projects that feature these popular blocks. Each sign of the zodiac is clearly illustrated in an easy patchwork pattern that makes a 20-inch square block and replicates precisely what your stargazer would see through their telescope. As featured on the book's cover, stitch together blocks for each astrological sign to make a starry queen-size quilt for your little (or big) dreamer. Make it personal by using a handful of constellation blocks unique to your family to create a mix-and-match quilt in multiple sizes. Want to make the perfect personalized gift? Highlight a single block to make one of the other six distinctive smaller projects-like a trendy jacket, a beguiling divination cloth, a charming table runner or a conversation-starting tea towel. Whichever projects you choose, Corcoran's and Jennings' constellations are destined to spark the imagination.
