Starburst Wall Quilt


Quilter Jennifer Houlden has a passion for colour and creating secondary designs within her patterns while giving the illusion of movement in the design. The Starburst Wall Quilt was inspired by meteor showers shining brightly in the dark, night sky she gazed at together with her husband when camping. This piece achieves the illusion of movement with the curved outside circle despite being sewn all with straight lines along with the gradation of orange fabric in the starburst. Perfect points are required with this piece and what better way is there to achieve perfect points than by paper piecing? A combination of paper piecing, strip piecing, and regular piecing is used to create this stunning starburst quilt. Step-by-step photos are included in the instructions. Finished measurements: 38” x 38” [95 x 95cm]
