I've finally quilted and finished it.
This was my original quilting plan
I did them in the centre of the star as planned, in a toning blue.
The background I split into sections using a pale blue to give the effect of the star bursting
I then quilted parallel matchstick lines outside the starbursts. The lines are parallel to the borders so go horizontal and vertical.
I echoed the centre of the quilt by quilting two parallel lines filled with bubbles in the border.
It was bound using the pink from the star points.
This is one of my finishes for FALQ4 and there is a list to the sites that I'm linking to HERE
