Jenny’s Starburst: A new quilt with a classic look. This one can be made with only two fabrics or planned scrappy with lights and darks.

Oh So Bright!

Oh So Bright!!: The Quilt finishes at 74″ x 86″. You can pull all the fabrics from your stash or use three-jelly rolls, one light and two dark. Your fabric should be lights and darks. There should be a definite division of colour depth; blendy-blendy mediums that can go either way should not be used. I used a light for my background with very bright colours for my other pieces. If you wish to use a dark for your background and lights for your other pieces you will need scraps to reflect that and if you wish to use jelly rolls you would use one dark and two lights. You will need border fabric once you have your centre quilt done. Leave that choice until the end. You will need an easy angle ruler to make this quilt.
