Looking for something a little unusual? Try Arabesque! The pattern combines a very simple block with four patches in the corners to create curvy chains that snake between the staggered blocks. Nothing’s set on point, although it looks like it might be, so no setting triangles to struggle with either. Have fun watching the design come to life as you lay out the blocks and stitch together this unique quilt.
Create the look of curves with just straight line piecing. Careful fabric placement will enhance the illusion of interlocking rings and curves. Construct the units oversized and use the Wedge Star™ tool to trim, so you don't struggle to make the blocks. An addicting process with endless variations. This pattern can also be adapted to 10” precut squares.
An unbelievable quilt that is certain to be a showstopper. The Wedge Star™ tool is used to create three simple block types that, when combined, give the illusion of curves connecting stars and star points. The intricate design looks difficult, but is easy for all since, like all Studio 180 Design techniques, oversizing and trimming are part of the construction process. Do not hesitate to give this pattern a try. You’ll amaze yourself and others with the results.
My Doves of Hope project is a twist on a traditional block titled Dove in the Window. I actually nestled a small dove block inside a large dove block to create a quarter section for each 19½” block. Add sashing and cornerstones to those quarter sections and you have a great, interesting block. Put it on point, and that Dove really soars!

Points galore! If you’ve ever seen a prickly pear cactus, you know this to be true. Our project achieves those points by using a combination of Flying Geese units and Geese on the Edge blocks.
