Summer Sampler Turns 10 – Block 10

To celebrate the 10 year anniversary of the Summer Sampler, Faith Jones, Lee Heinrich and Katie Blakesley are rereleasing their summer sampler from 2011.

The tenth block, Evening Star, was originally released in 2011 by Katie Blakesley of Swim Bike Quilt. The refreshed blog post was published on March 17, 2021. The tutorial can be found here. I’m using fabrics found in Quilted Connection’s shop:  Aquarelle from Art Gallery and White Modern Geo Class by Violet Craft for Robert Kaufman for the background.

This block is another paper-pieced block which I’m super stoked about! Easy Peasy.

If you need a refresher or are looking for a tutorial on paper piecing, I linked the YouTube tutorial I used when I first started paper piecing in my last blog post. You can find it here.

Choosing the fabric for this one was a bit challenging; I knew I wanted the center circle to alternate so I chose the same print, but different colorway. In the end, it worked out nicely.

When sewn together it really does look like an Evening Star.
