Supernova Quilt

Supernova Quilt

When I first bought my Quilting Modern book, I saw the Supernova Quilt and knew I had to make it.  And I knew that I would be using my stash of Washi to make it for my sister Kara.  She has seemed a little down lately and her birthday is coming up, so I got to work.  A few months ago I asked Kara what kind of quilt she would like and she said "black and white."  Um, I didn't go that direction ;) so hopefully she still likes this.

I LOVED making this quilt.  Washi is so gorgeous and I love it even more after making this quilt.  I had a really hard time putting this in the mail to Denver.  It almost didn't happen.

For the back I used a couple of Washi prints with some solids.

I added a little fussy cut piece of Echino because it reminded me of Kara and I thought she would like it.

I quilted it with random straight lines.  The essex linen has such a great texture with dense quilting.

Lately I have been trying something new with each quilt I make, so this was the first time I used Aurifil thread (it was just as amazing as I was afraid it would be) and I tried hand quilting for the first time.

I just did an outline of the center of the quilt with some orange perle cotton.  I enjoyed doing it, but it was not very good for my carpal tunnel. 

My daughter Harper had a hard time letting this quilt go too.

The quilt is scheduled to arrive today so I am hoping that Kara loves this quilt as much as I do!
