radiating star finish

a YEAR LATER, i finally have another finish! i was inspired by this photo and wanted to make a full size version. i used bella porcelain and opal owl by tina givens charm squares for the half square triangles. the opal owl prints have a whimsical nature-y feel to them.
finished dimensions 70" x 78"
i used a flannel burlap print from joann for the backing, flannel-backed quilts are so cozy! i also used joann fabric for the sashing and binding, i tried to focus on browns to masculine-it-up some.
while i was photographing this quilt over my fence, i was enjoying the awesome scent of the jasmine that is exploding into bloom right now.
and always under the supervision of my constant companion, of course.
