starburst quilt – the munki version

Well, at least I got one thing checked off my list this weekend! While I didn’t manage to start anything new with that fun stack of fabric, I did find the time to get this little quilt quilted, bound and washed. (I was hoping for better weather for these photos, but I guess I have to take what I can get!)

I decided to use a lot of my favorite Heather Ross & Munki Munki prints in this quilt, along with similarly colored basics. I love that it makes for a really bright and colorful quilt, with lots to look at!

I used the Amy Butler Sunspots in green for the backing, and quilted it with lots of great straight lines. The lines meet in several spots to form a starburst pattern with the quilting. I couldn’t decide on the binding, but ultimately went with a purple solid to pull out the bits of purple used in the quilt top.

This quilt measures about 36″ square, and I can really imagine it as a great playmat for a little one. It is listed in the shop now!

    this is a really fun quilt! I love all the cheerful colors used in these great blocks. I love the backing and binding fabrics you used to finish this. I’m a big fan of various line quilting, so I think the quilting works great for this design!

    What a wonderful quilt! How do you prepare your quilts before quilting to avoid crumpling at the cross of the quilting lines? I tried to make such nice quilting grids like yours but there is such a lot of crumpling?

    Maybe you can help me?

    (Sorry for my bad english, it isn’t my home language.)

    Thank you

    Fun – that is the word that came to my mind when I saw it. An adult size one for a picnic would be fun as well. You are a master at choosing colors that go together. Carolina
