While recovering from my knee surgery, I have been enjoying a lap quilt I recently finished. I saw this fabric, loved it and it has been waiting so very long in my stash. It was so busy I wasn't sure what to use with it. Finally I came up with a complimentary gold. Then I played with this pattern which has half squares in the corners of the blocks.

It's looks like octogons, even if not accurate. The pics are not showing the color good. It is 50 by 69 inches and I named it StarBurst. It is polly filled and long armed quilted by credit card. The back is left overs. Nice utility quilt that doesn't show spills and washes and dries great. I bound it just before my surgery and it is serving me very well.

Hi Katie, so good to see you posting again..*VBS* I've dropped by each day, waiting for your return!!

The starburst quilt looks wonderful! You did a great job with the color, the piecing and the back.
How are things going with the replaced knee? Hope you aren't in too much does get better in a few weeks, but is rough at the beginning...Hugs, Finn

What a lovely quilt to "recover" with. You'll be back making more to show us in no time - but behave and do what they tell you, though, so you don't make it be longer!

I hope you're feeling better and better each day. :)
