A Quilt Finish: Supernova

Supernova - front and back
Supernova Quilt Along by Lee of Freshly Pieced
Started:  March 15, 2011
Finished:  October 2, 2011
Size:  64" Square
Fabrics:  Anna Maria Horner Garden Party & Good Folks fabrics on front and back, Kona Celery solid on front, Kona Deep Rose for binding.
Quilting:  Straight line based on Felicity's Oceanic Supernova Full Frontal.
Who is it for?  Me :)

Had to make this quilt based on the pattern and the name and decided to keep the because it fits perfectly.  Knew right away that I wanted to make this quilt with my AMH stash.  If you check out the bottom center block you can tell that I was running out of reds!  My younger son helped me choose the binding color - I had the front and back laid out on the living room floor with my Kona card and he came along and helped me pick out a color that would work - I wanted a binding that would frame the quilt, not disappear.  Brought a block to school last semester to show fellow students and will always remember the remark of how "psychedelic" it looked.

Linking up to Sew Modern Monday, Fabric Tuesday and Manic Monday Linky Party.

Thrilled to have completed this quilt!
Enjoy the rest of your Monday,

  2. Oh my goodness this is BEAUTIFUL, Susan! I love everything about it - AMH was a perfect choice of fabrics. And I'm so happy my quilt helped you figure out the quilting - that's always the hardest part for me so I am delighted I helped someone else with that bit.
