Let the night sky be your inspiration with this bound collection of the popular Constellation patterns from Fancy Tiger Crafts. This collection includes all twelve quilt blocks plus an exclusive Orion quilt block pattern, eight projects that feature anywhere from a single block up to 12 blocks. Embellishing these is easy with a handy astrological quilting diagram for each zodiac sign included too. Each sign of the zodiac is clearly illustrated in and easy patchwork pattern that results in a 20'' square block. Sew a queen-size quilt for your little (or big) dreamer using all 12 blocks, or make it personal by using only a handful of blocks unique to your family to create a mix-and-match quilt in multiple sizes. Highlight a single block to make one of the other six smaller projects like a trendy hoshi jacket, a charming table runner or a conversation-starting tea towel with adorable pom-pom fringe. Whichever projects you choose, these constellations are designed to spark the imagination.
About the authors
Amber Corcoran and Jaime Jennings co-own the magical Denver shop, Fancy Tiger Crafts. Together, they have created a place that is both a local favorite and a destination for makers far and wide. The shop hosts an open craft night every Tuesday where Amber and Jaime can usually be found hanging out with other makers and shakers, sharing their love of all things handmade. Amber graduated from the Savannah College of Art and Design, studying graphic design and photography. Eventually introduced to textile crafts, she fell in love. Quilting is something she particularly loves for its ability to be both a comforting object and an asethetic expression–a beautiful piece of art to wrap up your loved ones in. Jaime grew up with a strong entrepreneurial spirit and a love of handicrafts which facilitated her opening fancy Tiger in 2006. It's been a non-stop love affair with knitting, sewing, textiles, and community ever since. Amber and Jaime can be found doing all kinds of crafty things at fancytigercrafts.com.
