The Brimfield Star EPP block is a cousin to the famous Brimfield Block. This English Paper Piecing pattern uses the same pieces as Brimfield Block except for the “tall house”. Take a look at the negative spaces between the original Brimfield Block and the star version. The difference between the two is that the negative space of Brimfield Block looks like a cog on a wheel. When you remove the tall house pieces (the piece connecting the orange peel sections), there is extra free space to fit one more orange peel section. The 5th orange peel section makes the center of the block look like a star!
If you love Brimfield STAR but think you might want to make the original Brimfield Block one day, we suggest buying the original Brimfield Block window acrylics. These acrylics work for both blocks.
NOTE: The English Paper Pieces and Templates are NOT Included with the pattern.
English Paper Piecing uses paper templates onto which fabric is wrapped to create shapes that are sewn together by hand. The Brimfield Block EPP design is appliquéd onto a square of fabric to make a 14″ finished block. A Brimfield Block Quilt is composed of 12 blocks. The finished quilt size measures 61″ x 47″. The pattern includes 10 instructional pages and a coloring sheet.
