Exploding Lonestar Finished

It's been a while since I've had a quilt finish on here. Believe me, there are lots in the works! I just have to get quilting. That seems to be my sticking point! But, here we go, I have a finish.

So you've seen bits of this quilt on my blog before but it's finally finished! This quilt is the result of a class I took at Round Bobbin Quilts in December. I haven't taken a class in a while and it was fun to have the camaraderie and collaboration in a class. And most of all it was fun to see the fabrics others selected. Unfortunately I can't find the photos I took of the different fabrics everyone chose. But there was a good mix of modern and traditional. We didn't finish the quilt in class so I never got to see end results.

All the fabrics were picked out at the Round Bobbin. And I've decided this quilt is going to my grandmother. She's 93 and was the one to teach me to sew. She taught me to cross stitch when I was six. And she was a hand quilter (not a piecer though) herself!

You can see the quilting better on the back. It's "v" shaped around the four quadrants of the quilt.
