As quilters, we seem to find inspiration for quilt patterns all around us. As early as 1845, quilts called “Seven Sisters” have been part of quilting history. Seven Sisters designs are made up of a grouping of seven stars in a roughly circular arrangement with one star in the center. The name Pleiades comes from a group of stars named for those seven sisters - the daughters of Pleione in Greek mythology. We hope that you will enjoy making our more modern rendition of this 175 year old pattern.
Using your favorite scrap fabrics and your Corner Pop II and Corner Pop III tools, create reflecting pyramids to grow your Pyramid Power. We recommend that as you pick your fabrics, pair each dark fabric with a light fabric in the same color. For example, a dark red and a light red, a dark blue and a light blue, etc. This will allow you to effectively create the shadowing effect seen in the cover quilt.
