Contemporary Lone Star Quilt

Finished an interesting quilt -- I made the Spiraling Lone Star top a year ago and decided it was too traditional. So I offset it, to make it more modern and interesting.
No the picture isn't cut off, it's offset

The finished quilt is 60" x 80", and it is machine quilted on my mid-arm Juki and Grace frame.


All of the colored portions of the quilt were made from leftovers from another quilt I made, which used up some stash!  I quilted the white center portion in a McTavish type design, the borders were a freehand feather design using multicolored thread, and the star was just outline quilted.


 I still can't decide if I need more variegated thread quilting in the borders, but think it's finished :)
