Nancy’s Starburst

~Well that’s not the quilt’s real name. But like I have said before, I love to give all the quilts a pet name, something to help keep track.

Doesn’t it look kind of like a starburst?

When Nancy sent the quilt to me, she requested not too much quilting and yellow thread. Sensing a great opportunity to use some variegated thread, I suggested it to her and she agreed. I very rarely use variegated thread, but sometimes, it just works!

Here is the detail of the back. I warned her that I would have to use orange thread on the back (since that is what was on front) and that the quilting would be very visible on the back. She quickly responded, “That’s why I picked a black back.” Isn’t she awesome!
