Star Burst

One of our Sweet Peas, Debbie found this quilt pattern on the Internet:
Star Burst Quilt
Ever one for a challenge Debbie just had to make this quilt. Not a quilt for the faint hearted. That centre piece surrounded by the first round of stars has 273 pieces in it!

I was itching to stitch this quilt so I was thrilled when Debbie asked me to quilt it for her. She gave me cart blanche to get stitching.
Here it is loaded on the frame:

First I stitched in the ditch around the stars and coloured squares. Then starting in the middle I stitched out through the the stars with star burst flowers, scaling them to fit the different sizes.

Then the fun commenced, fantasy feathers in the background working out to the edges.

What fun I had! I used Superior Threads Fantastico Variegated thread.The thread  was perfect  for this quilt. It’s hard to see in the photos but the thread is purple, lime green, aqua, blue and bright pink. This thread sparkles against the black background.

Debbie also made some back art:

BTW, if you like this quilt you can find the pattern at Gourmet Quilter. The designer is a New Zealander. You may like to poke around her site, you will find some very different quilts there.
