Patchwork quilting meets the celestial sky and the result...clean, elegant style with a cosmic touch. Join Fancy Tiger Crafts founders, Amber Corcoran and Jamie Jennings for an astrological exploration through the beauty of modern design. Each of the twelve blocks (plus a bonus Orion block never released before) finishes at 20" square and brings the sparse beauty of the celestial into the home with minimalist patchwork. Each block sparkles with an accurate representation of the stars found in the night sky. These clever but easy-to-piece astrology blocks allow for personalization galore. Perfect for welcoming baby quilts using a single block, combining two for a unique wedding quilt, or take it beyond quilting and make up a fashionable custom kimono-style Hoshi jacket.

Subtitled '12 Pieced Astrological Blocks, 8 Personalised Sewing Projects', this book includes blocks for each of the astrological signs. These modern blocks include clean lines. For each one, you will see a large colour image, cutting and assembling instructions with a clear line diagram presented over a two-page spread. The authors have included typical characteristics of each sign. The book also includes a block for Orion, one of the most famous constellations. I do like the blocks, but they all look very similar, the only difference is in the scattering of the yellow blocks. In Part Two, you will discover eight ways to use the blocks from a large quilt, another quilt in various sizes, a table runner, jacket, tea towel, cushion, tarot reading cloth and tote. In Part Three, find out how to use the blocks and star designs in any project you wish. This book also includes simple embroidery stitches and how to make a tassel. The book has a full-sized, pull-out pattern for the jacket. The book provides ample inspiration to make your own individual blocks and personalise the contents by adapting the blocks, using different quilting stitches to enhance the blocks and so on.-- Karen Platt * www.karenplatt.co.uk *
