Shooting Stars

Tannis Fahlman, Regina, SK

Dimensions: 61" x 73"

Materials: Cotton and cotton-poly batting.

Techniques: Machine piecing and longarm quilting with a stitch regulator.

Credits: I was inspired to make this quilt from Christmas ornaments.

Artist’s Statement:
I designed this eight-pointed star pattern to look like a star with long points shooting outward. I wanted a nine-patch of stars with four stars interlocking. To get the interlocking feature needed, a great deal of math and many templates preceded. I paper pieced the top and bottom of each star.
