English Paper Piecing Club - Astro Quilt

For confident beginners or seasoned quilters, ASTRO is an English paper-pieced project that will delight anyone.  The shapes in ASTRO play together to create depth and the fun illusion of layered triangles. ASTRO was designed for Libs' RANCHO RELAXO fabric collection, but the pattern also works well with a variety of small to medium prints or solids.

ASTRO measures 30" x 41-1/2" so it's perfect as a crib size quilt or wall-hanging project. 

This kit includes all the pre-cut papers required for the project as well as complete pattern instructions. Designed by Libs Elliott and made by

- Sharpes or Milliners Needles (size 10 or 11)
- Glue pen & refills for basting
- 60-degree ruler - we suggest the Easy Equals ruler by June Tailor
- Wonderclips
- Quilting ruler

Fabric kits with the Libs Elliott Rancho Relaxo fabric collection will be available upon request while supplies last.
