This beautiful quilt alternates a traditional chain block with an original Jinny Beyer compass design.

The compass blocks feature patches that are fussy cut from a large-scale paisley fabric, then appliquéd into the block in a hybrid patchwork/appliqué technique that Jinny developed and calls soft-edge piecing. (Click on the Video Demo tab to see Jinny demonstrate the technique.)

The pattern includes detailed soft-edge piecing instructions, as well as an alternative for those who prefer not to use this technique.

Finishes 55½” x 55½” (wall/lap) or 78½” x 101½” (twin).


The pattern is available only as a free download.
