A Modern Star

A new client Susan brought me this beautiful quilt to finish. Susan is another student of  Berene of Happy Sew Lucky.  She worked on this quilt in a workshop on translucency. I think she did a great job with her colour selections.

I love it when my customers know exactly how they want their quilt stitched, Susan came with a few sketches of her ideas.   The star’s separate units were all stitched with thread that was at the other end of that colour spectrum, an idea I was not sure about at first  but it really worked well.    Lots of ruler work balanced with some freehand swirls in the background.
