Blogger's Quilt Festival, part 2

For my second entry in the Blogger's Quilt Festival at, I am featuring my Imperial Star quilt.

This quilt is based on a traditional Broken Star design, with additional elements inspired by the work of Edyta Sitar.  The applique uses shapes from several of Edyta's patterns.

I am entering this quilt in the Applique Quilt category of the festival.

Here are a few more photos:

The quilting shows up well from the back:

My first entry for this year's festival, in the Large Quilt category, is my Double G Picnic quilt:

This quilt uses Cotton+Steel fabrics, primarily from Melody Miller's Picnic line.

I first posted about this quilt here.  This was a quick and easy quilt to construct; I wrote a tutorial which can be found here.
