Peppermint Burst Quilt is Finished!


My Peppermint Burst Quilt


Tiny on the Peppermint Burst Quilt
I just finished tucking in the last of the thread ends, so Peppermint Burst is now officially a finished quilt.  I love the feel of a brand new quilt and I'm clearly not the only one.

Everyone always wants to tell you how to take a picture of a quilt, and I was worried taking these pictures in the evening but as I spread the quilt out on the couch I knew it would be okay.  Just look how well my quilting pops in the pictures.  When I said densely quilted I really meant it.

I also flipped up the corner so you could see the way all that quilting looks on the back.  As well as a detail pick below.  That with the heart square with the heart quilted into it is 1".  Yes, lots of people have quilted more densely, and that's okay.  This is a cosy quilt, just right for those chill winter nights.

I'd like to offer up a special thanks to my friend Sue who wrote and published Pick Four.  This is my version of her quilt Starburst.  Her directions for making flying geese were easy even for this hardened anti flying geese fanatic.

Stunning. You did a great job! The quilting is fun but the way you tied the pattern and the quilting together is great.
