The Radiant Star: Nine Ways

Radiant Star QuiltOne of the great things about going on a quilt retreat, is seeing how a single pattern is interpreted by different quilters.  Under the guidance of Rhonda Rannow-quilt instructor, extraordinaire, many of the quilters worked on The Radiant Star Quilt from Eleanor Burns.  (See the book HERE)  The quilt above was created by Rhonda.  Isn’t it gorgeous?

I also love this modern interpretation on a white background.

I think this is what we all love about quilting:  one quilt and endless possibilities!

I hope you have enjoyed the Trunk Show from our quilt retreat.  There’s still more to come…

  1. That is exactly why!! Beautiful quilts! I was at a workshop this past Saturday. It was really fun seeing all the different fabric selections and how that translated into the workshop block.
    Have a great day.
    Always, Queenie

  2. Loved it! I have always wanted to make one of these. Do you know if there is any difference between the 1st version of this book and the newest one?

    • Several people in the class had the old version. I believe that the new version has added a small star pattern. Also, someone in the group had a hinged mirror that was very useful when auditioning fabrics. I think you could improvise without purchasing one, but it was very helpful.
