This is another one of my favourite quilts.  I pieced the top in 2006, and quilted it in 2007. 

This quilt really pushed me out of my comfort zone.  Whilst I had made scrappy quilts before, it was never quite on this scale, with the number of different fabrics.

I was trying to get the effect of an explosion of light towards the top right; toning the brown fabric from there, with shadowing of the star blocks.  

I used left over pieces on the back.


  1. I love everything about this quilt, the colours, design and quilting!! Beautiful use of scraps.

  2. Well, you succeeded brilliantly with your explosion of light! I love the back. Pieced backs are so much more interesting, although every once in a while I want a full-fabric back.

  3. That's really beautiful Desley - I love it!! I should do that more with the backs - its a great idea!!
