Starburst Quilt

I'm finally getting to post about this quilt!  I was trying so hard to finish taking pictures on Friday, but a group of children on a field trip crashed my photo session and I didn't finish up until yesterday.  Thanks, Kelly, for your assistance!

This quilt is for a little girl who is moving into her new "BIG" girl bed.  I made her a baby quilt a couple years ago and now she is growing up.  Her new room is going to be brown and green with a touch of aqua.  Her mom wanted a quilt that was fun on the front and somewhat neutral on the back.  This is what I came up with.



The mom picked the fabric that's in the middle star and she wanted solids for the rest.


For the back, I pulled all my scraps into this one to make it come together.

 
I did cheat a bit on the binding and went with this cute patterned print for an added touch.  I hope she likes it!

  9. wow what a great quilt and the pictures are unbelievable, so awesome. The back is just as spectacular as the front. Do you have a pattern for this star quilt? I think I really have to have one, although my venue for photos won't be anything like yours!!

  10. Beautiful! I love the way you did the back with the scraps. Makes the quilt reversible for use! I have started dong that too! All that work, might as well get double the pleasure from it!

  12. I know all of the solids and the brown were a stretch for you, but I really think it's a beautiful quilt. I'm so happy I got to see it in person, AND help with the photos!

  25. That's lovely. I love that green and would probably have the back showing as often as the front. It's all really clean and fresh. You've done a great job.

  28. That is so cool that you got to make her a big girl quilt. I love the colors and how they pop in the quilt design. I've never used a patterned print for the binding but I love how it looks on this! Definitely an inspiration!

  29. WOW! What more can I say? The mom is sure to love it! I know I do! I do love solids, but that binding just adds the little bit of sparkle that was needed to pull it all together. Great job, Janet!
