QUILTING: Summer Solstice with a Twist

The Summer Solstice was designed by Bradley and Judy Niemeyer. The instructions teach a strip piecing technique that expands on a traditional foundation paper piecing approach to complete lone star units. Strips are sewn onto foundation paper to complete what is called a "Strip Set". After the strip sets are completed, they are cut apart, rearranged, and resewn into a diamond star point. The technique evolved from seeing some common assembly approaches between the Summer Solstice and Bali Fever Backgrounds. Judy began experimenting with ways to speed up the creation of a lone star block with a strip to eliminate cutting, while also minimizing fabric waste. The Summer Solstice star was designed using 3.5" strips for the strip piecing. It incorporates a paper pieced New York Beauty (NYB) block and a general assembly process designed with no Y-Seams. This class will be taught by Josephine Keasler.
