Ocean Star, Harbour Lights
by Helen Butcher

Techniques: I used many different techniques to form the stars/half stars including improv piecing, foundation paper piecing and free piecing.

Materials: Cotton fabric, threads, batting and backing

Artist's Statement: I have been wanting to make a modern star quilt for some time and when I found I had a glut of Mediterranean Sea blues and greens this seemed an ideal time. the limited palette would have been a little flat without the warm yellow and deep red of the Harbour Lights.
