Bloggers Quilt Festival Spring 2013 - Throw quilt


This is my second entry into the fabulous Bloggers Quilt Festival held twice a year.  This entry is for the throw quilt category.  I was really excited when Melissa announced she was going to have  a quiltalong for her Starburst quilt. I loved her version as soon as I saw it, so jumped at the chance to make my own version. I wanted to use a color palette that was bright and fresh, but would have contrast against the Kona Snow.  I have used some of fav fabric ranges and designers in this quilt...Lucky Penny, Simply Color, DS, Lizzy House, and Joel Dewberry.


Melissa's instructions were super easy to follow and I love how this has turned out.  For the back I wanted colours that complemented the front so went for a pieced back using Joel Dewberry's Heirloom and Kona solids.  The binding is Michael Miller's Cotton Couture Violet. I free motion quilted it on my Bernina using an all over stipple.  

Some of the family pets are grazing behind us :).
