Lone Starburst Quilted Pillow



I posted about my first paper pieced project, a Lone Starburst out of Joel Dewberry's Aviary 2 in Lilac as well as some Kona Solids Olive and Violet. I decided to turn that 12.5 inch block in a larger block and quilt it.

 I added 3 inch borders... Although after I quilted it I wound up trimming them down. I used a high loft batting and muslin for backing.




I followed the seam of the star burst and then I decided to venture outside of my comfort zone and use my walking foot to follow the outline of the star. I think it turned out very nicely. The high loft batting caused the star burst itself to "poof" up a little and it looks nice.



I loved the way the back of it turned out, unfortunately that is hidden inside of the pillow now. I will definitely be making this block again and quilting it the same way so that the back can be seen because I really love this. 




I used Pond Kona Solid for the back of the pillow. I used recycled stuffing from an old pillow that we weren't using... and Voila!



A simple matching pillow for the Lilac Diamond Quilt.
