Third Rock Palette Quilt


Third Rock features a shaded sphere that seems to pop from the background. Most remarkably, that amazing 3D illusion is constructed with all straight seams and foundation piecing – there’s not a curved seam in the quilt!

No curves – all straight seams and foundation piecing.

Finishes 51″ square.

Pattern Correction

The original pattern calls for two 4.5″-wide strips to be cut from the 1/4 yard of Fabric 4. Since this might not always be possible, we recommend cutting one strip 4.5″ wide and the second 3.5″ wide. This still provides plenty of strip width to complete the foundations.
