About Shine: the Circle quilt
Addict of the English paper piecing technique, Elizabeth Eastmond wanted to go beyond the straight lines and push the limits of her art by embarking on this radiant project in 2014. Circles, suns and multicolored compasses meet to form a cleverly structured whole. These motifs were greatly inspired by the decoration of a church she discovered in Slovenia during a trip. 

Every month, and until the end of the year, we reveal to you exclusively in our newsletter 3 new blocks to make this square quilt of 64″ side (162.5 cm).

For the last steps to finalize this quilt, you can either imagine the last four blocks and finish according to your taste, OR choose to follow Elizabeth’s instructions (pattern for sale on her Payhip site)
