Star Struck

by Cristyn Merry of League City, Texas

Artist Statement:

This quilt was created primarily to show off the automatic pattern-generating capabilities of the IntelliQuilter. Computer Art was used to generate the stars and spirograph designs; Path Pattern created the feathered wreaths and rings as well as the edge of the quilt. Echo Pattern created the inner echo of the quilt edge and curved crosshatch in the Feathered Star. Line Pattern was used for all stitch-in-the-ditch and continuous curve.”
