Star Sampler Quilt

Rita, from Mochi Studios pieced this beautiful quilt, it's a collaboration of block exchanges and other star blocks that she's made.

The quilt itself is just gorgeous. I was so flattered when Rita asked me to machine quilt it for her and told me I could pretty much do whatever I wanted with it. So, with those large borders and beautiful blocks. I had fun!
The blocks really ended up "popping" I love that result.
I used Quilters Dream Wool batting and that gave it just a little bit more texture.
This photo was right after I had begun the machine quilting, it's always fun to share little snippets of what I'm working on over on instagram and facebook.
This is the quilt back, seriously how awesome is that back. I love the giant star!
Lastly another picture of the back. I really do love this quilt!
Thanks again Rita for letting me machine quilt this gorgeous quilt!

All of the machine quilting techniques that I used on this quilt I teach in my book, Beginner's Guide to Free-Motion Quilting.
