Bloggers Quilt Festival-Starburst

Amy's Creative Side



There are heaps of very amazing quilts over at The bloggers quilt festival.  I thought I would add mine as I love it and thats what counts!!

This is my very recently finished 'mystery quilt' - a QAL put together by the very talented Sheila at Bluepatch quilter
I hand quilted, by stitching in or around the stars using variagated perle cotton

 This was my first time paper piecing and thanks to Sheila I discovered that I love it and have gone on to do more-the mariners compass in the top left corner is my favourite
I would probably have never picked these colours out, but as I was on a strict fabric diet at the time, I used a small fat quarter bundle that I have been given (I did end up buying more fabric later, but ssshhh)
So, this is my Starburst quilt.  If you have popped over from Amys, thank you for taking the time to visit - and if you havn't been over there yet, go on over and take a look at all those lovely quilts!
