This quilt is 20x20" and turned out so nice I am making one for myself, albeit in red and green. Sidebar: I have always wanted both a feathered star and a red/green quilt.
There are 4 different blue fabrics playing together and the light blue is also used as the backing. All fabrics are from stash.
Quilting was done on a domestic sewing machine using either a light blue variegated rayon thread or a dark blue variegated rayon thread. The star was ditch quilted and then free motion was added. The center quilted medallion is reproduced in the four corners of the quilt. In the north, south, east, west large triangles I used a quilting pattern called Nordic Cross. The border was filled with a series of straight lines or undulating lines.
Hopefully, my partner will like it.
