Welcome to my stop on the hop! I was inspired to finish up a quilt top from the Starburst Quilt Along earlier this year. The top was completed in February, so it didn’t sit around for too, too long before quilting…
This is the second time I’ve tried other free motion quilting designs besides stippling. I used wonky diamonds along the outer border & stippling in the negative white space. Inside each star I quilted a swirl and then rays emanating out toward the points of the stars.
I used Angela Walter’s Free Motion Quilting book for design inspiration.
And where are the flowers? On the back!
Normally I like to take photos before washing the quilt, but this time I washed and dried it because I am donating this quilt. I wanted to make sure all the seams went through the washer and dryer with no problems.
I also used a flower print for binding—House and Home by Bernatex. I love these happy little flowers!
This quilt is going to a group who provides quilts for breast cancer patients. I didn’t have any specific person in mind when I started the quilt along, so hopefully it will provide comfort to someone who needs it.
Make sure you check out all the other stops on the hop today!
Thanks so much, Carol & Madame Samm, for organizing this hop and cheering everyone on!
