As quilters, we seem to find inspiration for quilt patterns all around us. As early as 1845, quilts called “Seven Sisters” have been part of quilting history. Seven Sisters designs are made up of a grouping of seven stars in a roughly circular arrangement with one star in the center. The name Pleiades comes from a group of stars named for those seven sisters - the daughters of Pleione in Greek mythology. We hope that you will enjoy making our more modern rendition of this 175 year old pattern.
