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 youโ€™re interested in coloring your quilt block before making it there are also coloring pages available for each block. The finished quilt size is 66โ€ x 66โ€. Find the fabric instructions and the patterns for each block below.

    I have just found the fabric and instructions for the Pleaides quilt from a few years ago and have found I do not have the finishing instructions, would it be possible to have those emailed to me so I can make the quilt, please. I am now in a position to be able to get the quit made.

    Thanks so much for still having this quilt up, I picked up these after two years and when I got to finishing the cutting< I realized I was short the Taygeta Star. I just printed it out and now I can put it together.
