Solstice ~ Ready to Quilt

Late last year after I finished the Stargazer Block-of-the-Month run by Rebecca Bryan, I said I wasn't going to do another one. Stargazer was a lot of work, and I was still feeling tired from it.

A few months later, when Rebecca revealed the 2020 Block-of-the-Month, Solstice, I decided that yes, I was going to do another one. Rebecca's quilts are never easy, but they're super interesting and unique. I certainly don't have another quilt like Solstice in my collection.

After 8 months of block making, I finally got ready to assemble Solstice.

Solstice wasn't too difficult to put together as it consists mostly of 60 degree triangles assembled in rows. There are no bias edges on the outside which is good news for me. However, some of the seams are very, very thick and I found that the most challenging part. The end result definitely has a wow factor! I would never have thought to use these colors, but they work so beautifully together.

Solstice is the first block-of-the-month I finished this year, and I couldn't be more pleased with it. One down, 3 more to go!


  1. It glows and radiates; I look forward to seeing how you really bring it to life with quilting.

  2. So pretty, and such amazing colors!

  3. It reminds me of looking at glowing embers in a fire. It is just dazzling, Liz. Can't wait to see how you quilt this one!

  4. Yours looks perfect 👌 great job.i like what Wendy says about glowing embers that is a good comparison. Mine is coming together but it’s so big.

  5. Fantastic! I made Stargazer, but have not made Solstice. I'm sure you will love this quilt!

  6. That turned out absolutely beautiful and interesting.

  7. That is stunning! They do move along nicely and it always seems to me I fall in love with them the more I work on a BOM. I love this one.
