Ta da... my mystery quilt is finished!! And it has a name - starburst. I love the zingy colours that I went with and love how it has turned out
The mystery quilt along was started by Sheila back in April 2011: so its taken me a year from start to finish
I hand quilted this, stitching around the stars in variagated green or orange. Its been hard going as I used an old duvet for the backing and on further inspection it was egyptian cotton (a charity shop purchase)
The hand quilting shows up really well on the back
And I also included my tippa canoe block that I did all wrong, which Sheila renamed 'capsized canoe'. Luckily I only made one!
I will make a label for this quilt and sew it on the back. This was also the first quilt that I spray basted and I will never use safety pins again!!
A great big thank you to Sheila for putting this together and getting us to try new things.
This also counts as my 2nd finish for Rhonda's FAL!
