The Summer Solstice pattern is 60"x60" which teaches a strip piecing technique that expands on the 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 re-sewn into a diamond star point. 

The Summer Solstice star was designed using 3” 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.

The Summer Solstice pattern can be increased in size to 68" through the addition of a 'C' border (8 options) It can then be increased in size to 99" through the addition of a 'D' (Queen) border. (10 options). Email papers.thread@gmail.com for more information.
