    Default Finally finished Exploding Star Queen Size Quilt & Shams

    I've been working on this quilt for a long time. Completely scrappy from my stash. Thanks to all the advice I got from folks on the board. Because there were some problems with points meeting around the stars, I couched yarn with quilting which made the stars pop nicely. I'm pleased with the results. I also made the pillow shams (they are really rectangular, but the photos came out looking a bit uneven). Thanks for looking!

    Awesome quilt. I was drawn to the exploding star the first time I laid eyes on it. A great scrap buster quilt. Yours turned out great.
