Supernova Quilt-Along Quilt COMPLETE!

I'm happy to announce that I completed the Supernova quilt that I have been working on in the quilt-along with Lee at Freshly Pieced.  Lee did a great job.  Hats off to Lee.  My colors are bright.  Besides one baby quilt this is the first BIG quilt I machine quilted... and I did it in RED!  It has it's character spots, but I am very very happy with it.  It's perfect for watching fireworks, going to a ball game, or having a picnic in the park.  Here are some pics:

Look how nice it looks on the grass

Then there's the pieced back.  I still love those picnic ants.

All those half square triangles made super cute pinwheels for the back.

I haven't done a binding yet, so I stuck with pillowcasing it.  Maybe the next baby quilt I'll try to have perfect mitered corners.  LOL.  You can also see the McD's fabric I thought was fitting for this because of all the red, yellow, black, and white.  I was calling my McSupernova for a while.

The quilted stars turned out okay too.  It was ALOT of turning and turning and pivoting.  Whew.  After about three of them I wasn't sure if that is what I wanted, but I was already committed to it.  I am really happy with them now that it is done.

This star isn't as crooked as it looks.  Must have been the wind and the angle.

The finished quilt is 81 x 99.


  1. What a fabulous quilt! You're going to love using it for fireworks. It *looks* like fireworks! Way to go.

  2. Swoon. It's perfect. Perfect! I love that it has it's "character spots." I need to remember that one!
