This quilt was made for my parents' 40th wedding anniversary that was last month. I wrote more about it a couple weeks ago, if you're interested. The supernova pattern is from Freshly Pieced, and my color scheme was inspired by Lee's finished quilt that can be seen here.
Here's a closer shot so you can see the quilting better:
I did figure-8 type loops in the diagonal and straight color strips, spirals alternating with spiral flowers in the center 9-patches, and (sort of) straight line quilting in the gray triangle background pieces. The border is quilted with names. Our family includes me and my 5 siblings, our 6 spouses, and we have 16 kids all together. 16... is that right? Everyone's names are quilted in that outer border. But not my parents' names. I put them on the back:
I'm so glad this is finished. One day I think I might make another one for me to keep. These colors were so fun to work with and it was fun making a secret project for my mom and dad. I've been working on some other projects and I'll be back to share more about them soon!
