Dioptra Quilt Pattern
Dioptra Quilt Pattern by Miss Make
This is a listing for a printed pattern.
Dioptra is comprised of a network of stars, their connections weaving together through their points, plotting a path across the sky. The pattern is named after the dioptra, an ancient Greek surveying device that allowed users to make large, complex measurements - say, determining the distance between Rome and Alexandria - based on the positions of the stars.
Dioptra's stars include some unique angles, achieved through either foundation paper piecing or standard piecing with a bit of trimming (it’s up to you). Full instructions included for foundation paper piecing in case you've never tried it and would like to give it a try.

- Full color instruction booklet with detailed instructions & diagrams
- Coloring Pages
- Fabric Placement worksheets

Techniques Used: Foundation paper piecing, or traditional piecing with some extra trimming - it's up to you!
