Default Starburst made with a "mini-wedge' ruler

I have had this packet of mini-wedge rulers for several years. I finally used the smallest one for the first time today.
I am going to do another one similar but with a brownish center and orange/yellow for the wedges (for a sunflower.
Anyway, this is the results. I put tape over the feeddogs to do that little bit of free motion quilting in the center (not very well done).

I got the wedge rulers about a month ago, and this is one of my goals to do something like yours. It is just beautiful. Great job.

Thanks--it went together quicker than I expected. Wasn't at all hard to do.

It's beautiful, the colors are so rich and warm-looking.
(I know you didn't ask but IMHO, if you aren't happy with the center, add a bit more meandering.)

I think I will when I get back Home and have a machine I can FMQ on a little easier. My makeshift way of doing it on my featherweight left a lot to be desired! I finished a second one but am waiting to do the center on it until I get home, too.
