It's a finish!
Sunburst pattern is from the book Making Quilts by Kathy Doughty.
The rooster fussy cut centers were cut from a fabric in my stash - Bohemian Rooster Click by Susan Winget.
I then found enough stash fabrics that I thought were boho enough to coordinate with the centers. All sunburst points are yellows from stash.
The quilt was started in November 2017.
I hand quilted a flower in the middle of the blocks in aqua thread. I used a stencil and the eight petals extend out into each sunburst point.
I hand quilted in yellow an eyeballed 1/4 inch inside and outside each starburst point. I made a template for quilting in extra sunburst points between each sunburst point. I also used yellow to quilt an eyeballed 1/4 inch outside the inner circle. I hand stitched in the ditch in red around the outside circle.
I used the same eight petaled flower stencil and hand quilted in red in the area where blocks meet.
I used some of the same fabrics as used in the blocks for a scrappy binding.
Even though I've been on "no buy" for over a year I did have to buy batting (Hobbs Heirloom Premium Cotton Batting) and backing fabric (deeply discounted) in order to complete the quilt.
I've spent months of Slow Sunday Stitching (and every other day of the week) so time to celebrate with other hand workers at Kathy's Quilts.
And on to the next one...
