Burst into Life

Reverse appliqué pattern – instructions for hand and machine applique and machine piecing

(95" x 95")

 “Burst into Life” with the striking Midnight Explosion quilt (95” x 95”). We made ours in black and bright batiks from Batik Textiles.  This large queen-size quilt boasts 17 unique 12” blocks that burst and bloom across the quilt like the Aurora Borealis in the nighttime sky.  For quilters of all ability levels, you choose how you want to make it. The blocks can be created by hand or machine reverse applique with applique accents, using Eye of the Beholder’s easier Trace, Baste, Snip & Stitch method for hand, or Trace, Snip, Iron & Stitch method for machine.  Pattern comes with extensive step-by-step, pictorial directions for all creation methods, and full-size, durable pattern pieces.  No need to enlarge the pattern or re-position fabric as you trace.  Check out our Technique Tutorials and blogs for more help.

You get: 

  • Complete creation instructions for hand or machine reverse applique and machine piecing.
  • Full-size pattern pieces for all 17 blocks(12" x 12")

What is a Pattern PDF and how do I print it?

A Pattern PDF is a digital file of the complete pattern instructions and full-size pattern pieces.  You will also be emailed Welcome Notes.

After purchase, a link to the Pattern PDF will be sent to you automatically – click the link to get your pattern.  This link expires after 24 hours, but we can re-send it to you if you have any trouble. Just email us at admin@eobquiltdesign.com

  •  All pattern booklets are 8.5” x 11” and can be printed on an in-home printer.
  •  The full-size pattern pieces will need to be put on a USB stick and taken to a copy shop that can print in large format. 
  •  This will be an additional expense for you. However, a Pattern PDF is priced at 25% off the print pattern price because of this additional expense to you.
  •  Please check in your area that you have a copy shop that can print the pattern for you before purchasing.

This Pattern has four pattern pieces. Patterns print on paper that is: Pattern set 1(Blocks 1 - 5) - 36" x 40"; Pattern set 2(Blocks 6 -9), Pattern set 3 (Blocks 10 - 13) and Pattern set 4(Blocks 14-17) - 30" x 36"
