Challenging Quilt Pattern: Reach for the Stars

In this installment of our series quilt we give you instructions for blocks one, two, and three. Part one of Reach for the Stars appeared in the October/November 2013 issue of Quilters Newsletter. We'd like to sugest that you keep the issues of Quilters Newsletter with all the parts of the series so you can see the quilting when you are ready for that step. Designed by Terri Krysan, Page Johnson of Rosemount, Minnesota, quilted Reach for the Stars. To work on your own version, look for first three blocks in Quilters Newsletter December/January 2014.

Reach For the Stars--block 4
Finished center and blocks 1-6. Anyone else have trouble with block 4? Made it twice----still not quite right.

This is a beautiful quilt...and challenging. But the editors decided to make even more challening by not printing a large color coded desin. The postage stamp size color chart is just too small to decern the differences. Then to make matters worse a shop owner recogized the fabric and asked why they were using two year old fabric. Even worse the pattern in second edition was up side down.
Material Brand
Marterial for this quilt is Maywood Paisley collection and I have searched everywhere and can't find this fabric. I was told it is discontinued. I was so disappointed. It was what sold me the magazine.
Material brand
I can't find the fabric anywhere! My research shows it from 2009? Why would you use a fabric nobody can find?
Material brand
I would like to know the line of material she used.
