Summer Sampler 2017 - Alchemy

Today is my day of the Summer Sampler 2017 Quilt Along - the Summer Star Medallion.  I was so happy when Faith, Katie and Lee asked me to take part designing a block again this year.  And everyone loves a good star - so fun all around.  Scroll to the bottom to see the entire collection of star blocks and the layout.

Meet Alchemy.

With all the challenging paper piecing in the first few blocks of the Summer Sampler, you may be happy to hear that this block is just regular piecing.  Yay!  I know how much Lee and Faith love paper piecing (wink, wink), so I knew I should go with some good old-fashioned straight-up-now-tell-me traditional piecing.

But.... it still may be challenging if you're making this as a 6" block.  The one I made above is a 12" block.

I thought this butterfly from Rashida's first Cotton + Steel line, Moonlit, was perfect for fussy cutting in the center of the block.  Maybe something to keep in mind depending upon your fabric choice for the quilt along.  Enjoy!
