Milky Way Sampler Quilt

By January 15, 2017Sampler Quilt - QAL

I finally joined Alyce Blossom Heart Quilts at Milky Way Sampler Quilt Along. A free block is available to download once a month or the whole pattern can be purchased at once. I chose to download one star per month so I am not tempted to complete it all in one go and I will be able to have fun together with the participants of this QAL and will be checking their progress on Instagram.

This is how the whole pattern looks:

Impossible to resist, right? Besides I really like stars and FPP and would like to make more of them!
I was thinking whether I should use my stash for the sampler but then decided to use fabrics from Alison Glass 76 collection for it, which is absolutely stunning!

I need to use more fabrics from my stash of course but the sampler was a great excuse to buy few fat quarters from the collection, so I will be using only Alison Glass 76 for it. Here is what I picked and got from Simply Solids so far:

And here is my first finished block from January, a star called Sirius:

I was enjoying fussy cutting here, although it is not absolutely perfect if you can see but I can live with it and very chuffed with the result.

Bring on February and the 2nd star block.
