I was able to finish up this quilt during nap time and father/daughter time.  I decided to name it Starburst after one of Cheetah's favorite candies.  My niece Miss S suggested it.  My original name for it was Flamin' Hot, but I decided against it.  I pieced it while the Dollarridge Fire was burning less than a half mile from my father's cabin. I am happy to say that due to the amazing efforts of the firefighters my parent's cabin and those surrounding theirs were spared.

I quilted it on the Bernina Q24 in a new to me quilting design combination.

Spirals and paisleys.  :)

I really like the combo and will be sure to do it again.  My sweet little Bunny gave this quilt her stomp of approval when I showed my husband the quilting design.

It is no surprise that she loved the fuzzy minky backing.

Then I bound it in the same red as the border.

I totally love it! It finishes about 60 by 70 inches.

My sister-in-law asked who it was for.  I said, "Well, it matches my September Decor."

(Complete with rainbow baby gate.)

I think it may be a keeper.

However, my husband isn't that fond of throw quilts.  He likes things put away, so it may stay here until ready for a cuddle.

I now have a post about how I combined the spirals and paisleys in my quilting. 


P.S. I will be linking up with some of the fun parties on my sidebar including Oh Scrap. Check them out to see what other quilters have made.
