The Summer Solstice star was designed using 3â€ strips for the strip piecing. It incorporates a paper pieced New York Beauty (NYB) block and the general assembly process was designed with no Y-Seams. It uses yardage very efficiently at just over 7 yards of fabric for the top. NOTE: The original version of Summer Solstice is out of print and the new one references a different Quiltster Template and is not compatible with the old pattern. Unit Names and Fabric References have changed as these units can now be mixed and matched with many others in our pattern inventory and we needed to make everything consistent. You will need to purchase a new pattern if you want replacement papers for the old design as we donâ€™t have any of the original papers left.
