The Ultimate Guide to Machine Quilting – Exploding Star

Exploding Star was my favorite one to quilt in The Ultimate Guide to Machine Quilting. Angela Walters and I each quilted our versions completely differently, showcasing what is possible when quilting either on a domestic machine, or a long-arm.

I used a large continuous spiral, which is only possible to do on a sit-down machine, while Angela showed how quilting the same motif in different scales really draws your eye towards the center of the quilt.

Angela’s version of Exploding Star – isn’t it fun to see the same quilt 2 different ways?
