Aperiodic was inspired by Ammann-Beenker tiling and is a fun non-traditional block-based quilt. While blocks are used, their placement doesn't repeat in an obvious pattern, making this quilt feel more akin to a puzzle. There are plenty of diagrams, check lists and labels to help you make your own stunning Aperiodic quilt.
Currency conversion estimate: ~$12.49 USD // ~€12.53 // ~£10.75 (as of Oct 30, 2022)
The pattern comes with instructions for either a 2-colour or 5-colour version, and 3 sizes: small throw (50" x 50"), large throw (67.5" x 67.5") and bed (94.5" x 94.5").
Note: The pattern does not include explicit instructions for doing multi-coloured stars as shown in the 5-colour small throw photo, although the pattern is easy to adapt to include them. It also does not include instructions for @thequiltsmith's version - that was her own creative interpretation of the pattern.
Difficulty: Advanced beginner.
There are a lot of flying geese, but I've given plenty of extra room to make trimming a breeze. The pattern also requires organization, but if you use the provided labels, you should have no problem keeping track of all the blocks.

Born and raised in the Canadian prairies, Janice started quilting in 2019 while living near the ocean in San Diego.
Janice comes from a family of quilters but was always adamant about not joining the family Quilting Quorum. After finishing grad school and finding herself with an abundance of time not consumed by needy proteins and experiments, Janice found herself with a whole cloth hand quilting project. It wasn't long before she started asking her mom and aunt about what to look for in a sewing machine.
Prairie and Ocean is a team of hard working individuals. Morale Operations are run by Combo, her German Shepherd mix, and her cat Emma is the QC manager for naps under/on quilts. Both animals share the role of Disruptor of Fabric, immediately seeking their rightful place on any quilt blocks laid out on the floor.
She is supported by her loving #quilthusband Dan, who while partly colourblind, tries really hard to help with fabric selection. He knows some stuff about websites too :)
