Starring You measures 75 inches wide and 90 inches tall.
Working within a modern aesthetic, I choose high contrast fabric for visual interest. I limited my colour palette to black and white to bring attention to the large graphic, yet striking minimal design from which exudes a bold sense of masculine energy.
I arranged 5 diamond shaped units together to form the partial star and took the remaining 3 units and cut them up into 90 pieces. I used turned edge appliqué as it provides the greatest freedom of composition in creating the explosive star burst.
The expansive negative space is densely quilted with a variety of custom, hand guided quilting motifs. To highlight the large graphic design and add definition throughout the quilting, I used a heavy weight black thread to create the large circles, stars, double ended arrows and boarders that frame the asymmetrical design.
