A Lone Star Throw With A Dramatic Border.
This throw with a dramatic burst of color will become a feature in the room. Using shades of the same color, the quilt will be striking in a room that requires an accent.
If you love quilts with floral bursts this wall hanging provides the perfect display. The poppies are made using fusible raw edge applique, while complimentary poppy prints in contrasting backgrounds are used to piece the star. Black for the background fabric provides the perfect support to make the star pop. Or make up your own combinations and contrasts, perhaps using a light color floral bouquet for the backing.
If poppies are not your favorite, or not easy to find, Moda’s Farmer’s Daughter would be striking, or Franny and Janes Bloomsbury.
The dramatic eye catching border is surprisingly easy. Match fabric to play up the star.
