Inner Peace, the block of the month for 2008-2009, is now complete and has been replaced by Moonlight Dancers for 2009-2010.  Inner Peace will be removed from Planet Patchwork on July 31, 2009 and thereafter will be available only as a pattern for purchase. We will be unable to supply missing installments after the pattern is removed from the site, so please print out these instructions before it is removed and put them in a safe place.

Welcome to Planet Patchwork's 2008-2009 Block of the Month, "Inner Peace," by Diane Hundley.

We hope you like this new bold yet formal design, which is sure to be a crowd-pleaser. We appreciate your continuing support of the Planet Patchwork block-of-the-month.

The quilt is shown here in jewel tones on black, but you are not tied to one colorway. Feel free to choose your own fabrics and let your imagination run wild. It will be interesting to see what you come up with.

The finished size of this quilt will be about 82" x 82".

Yardage has been figured using 44" wide fabric and cutting borders from selvedge to selvedge. If you choose to make one long piece for the borders you will need more fabric. Below is a list of yardage needed to complete your quilt top (main quilt and borders). As always yardage is figured more than actually needed.

To make the quilt top only
Background Black 2 5/8 yards
Green 1 1/8 yards
Red 1 1/8 yards
Yellow 1 1/8 yards
Purple 7/8 yard
Blue 1 1/4 yards
Black & White 1 5/8 yards

Pieced borders 1 1/3 yards
un-pieced borders 2  3/8 yards
