Star-Crossed {Starburst Quilt Top}

It's time to show off my Starburst quilt top before I start quilting it!

Taking a quick rewind, here are my blocks before adding my sashings.

I moved around the locations of some of the blocks from this layout slightly while putting together the quilt top. I used the simple sashing option without cornerstones for my quilt top.

I used the tan mottled batik for my smaller inner border and the dark navy/teal print for the border.

For the backing, I am planning to use a chunk of the solid batik fabric provided in our most recent Ambassador box; save the pretty fabrics for the quilt tops!

Now I'm ready to quilt this beauty! What color (or colors) of thread do you think I'll be using?

Get your own copy of Starbursts on Etsy! As an Island Batik Ambassador, I am provided with samples of various lines of Island Batik fabrics, Aurifil thread, and Hobbs Batting to use and share with you


  1. It looked nice with just the blocks. Then you added the sashing, and it looked great. And then you added the borders...what a difference. Happy quilting.

  2. Great job! The inner tan border really pulls all the different stars together.

  3. Oh, thanks for the reminder of how powerful this kind of simple layout can be! The common background and spacing gives each pretty star room to breathe and shine :)
