Printable Templates

Posted by on January 1, 2012 in blocks | 3 comments

Kristin enlarged and re-arranged the Eclipse templates so that they are printable on “Letter” (8 1/2 by 11 inches in the US) paper–one template per page–and ready to use.

Thanks, Kristin!

You can download them using these links:

As Julie pointed out, these templates are used in the Eclipse quilt pattern to make larger blocks, but, because of how you use them, you can use the same templates and start with a smaller square.  The arcs (which become circles when four blocks are sewn together will be the same size, but, in our 9 inch (finished size) blocks, there will be less fabric around the outside of the block than those in the Eclipse quilt pattern.

As I was making the blocks, I thought about using them with some 10″ fabric squares that I have from a swap (with dog themes) to make a kids quilt.  It would add some interest without completely chopping up the novelty fabrics.


  1. Thank you Kristin. I was putting off starting this one but have now printed off the templates which you made much easier for us.

  2. Thank you for doing this Kristin!

  3. And thank you for including the one-inch measurement so that we are sure we printed out the correct size! Thanks Kristin!
