I've had a lot of requests for the pattern for my Eastern Sunrise Quilt and I thought what better time to release it than during Blogathon Canada! So if you're hopping here from one of the lovely Ontario host bloggers Welcome! I'm Carol. I live in Toronto and have been quilting and blogging for close to 4 years now.
I walked onto the train I was taking to work one day and a young girl's jacket caught my eye. I loved the lines and colors on it so I took out my little inspiration notebook that I always keep with me and sketched a little quilt block. I got home later and worked out this this paper piecing pattern. I started making the blocks and piecing them together and I got a lot of requests for the pattern. So here it is!
You can download it for free here : Eastern Sunrise Quilt Block.
The block measures 7.5 inches finished and each copy of the pattern will give you one 7.5 inch block. Make some up and play with the placement. You can create different looks with this block.
Here's the layout I chose. There's 4 in this one.
I make them and keep adding to my columns of bright rays!
You can have them go vertical.

If you make your own Eastern Sunrise I'd love to see it.
Thanks for stopping by from Blogathon Canada!
