Pleiades Quilt Block Challenge
Welcome to the Pleiades Quilt Block Challenge! You will be creating the beautiful Pleiades quilt pattern, designed by the talented Gina Perkes of The Copper Needle. This quilt celebrates the full spectrum, transitioning from one color to the next with each new block. There are many different fabric lines which lend themselves to this concept in your fabric choices. The yardage is generous due to the transitional nature of the design. Have fun playing with color! If you’re interested in coloring your quilt block before making it there are also coloring pages available for each block. The finished quilt size is 66” x 66”. Find the fabric instructions and the patterns for each block below.

    I just retired, and though I have YEARS of projects to finish and start, this piqued my interest. It sounds like fun!

    I love to sew and making quilts for my large family has been a large part. This should be a fun challenge.

    Thank you for the Quilt Blocks. I shall try them out later on as I have to help Hubby extend my workshop, but at
    the moment it is rather cold to work outside, I am in the U.K.
