Starburst Finish

A few months ago I watched the Youtube video
from Missouri Star for this
Starburst quilt and have wanted to make it since.
I love Half Square Triangles and love to play with them...
forming them into different patterns and designs.

This one was done for me,
so I just had to cut, sew and quilt.



It is a dreary, rain soaked
day today,
so the house is dark.
The colors on this quilt pop more than they do in the photo.



I practiced my feathers in the white areas of this quilt.
 

Some look good and some...
not so much.
Practice makes perfect,
or at least makes prettier feathers!




These colors are so summery to me.
This would be a fun beach quilt.

 

I'll mark this one off of my goal list 
and move on to the next thing.

Linking up to Patchwork Times today.

Happy Quilting!

Very pretty! Aren't feathers fun? And drawing them our really helps develop muscle memory. I've got way too many sketch books with nothing but spines and feathers...but it's helped me so much to free hand beautifully. I was sure...downright positive I commented on the "wedding quilt"....even about the backing as well as the design reminding me of a lace wedding dress I'd seen before. Is it possible old age has caught up with me and I forgot to hit "publish"??? lol Probably....but it was lovely as well. You did a spectacular job.

Oh I love those colors and the design, it screams summer! And you are so right practicing leads to fantastic feathers and it just gets easier and easier to quilt them.

Ramona,
I love your quilt! It inspires me to try it with a charm pack I have as well.
And I am so impressed with your feathers. I have a book to teach it, and have seen several demonstrations.

What is your finished size? I am curious. Did you use a charm pack or just scraps?
But I love the summery bright colors as well.
