Virtual Quilt Show: Dorothy Smith, NZ

Dorothy Smith, Starburst
There was a discussion on the list last year about making the stars in this quilt. I decided to have a go, and ended up making 12 of them from a heap of fat quarters that I had! I really loved doing that. Then there was the question... what to do with them? This is the result. Hand appliqu├ęd flowers, leaves and stems, stars hand sewn onto background. All the rest machine sewn. My own design. I was really pleased with the result, so entered it into the Quilt show. I got 2nd!
