Erin Russek & Ashley Slupe | Runtime (5 min)


Congratulations! You’re ready to assemble your quilt top, layer, baste and machine quilt, and bind your version of the Bursting Star quilted wall hanging. McCall’s Quilting assistant editor Erin Russek and photography stylist Ashley Slupe take you step-by-step through adding background corners to your quilt center and discuss quilting and binding ideas for the Bursting Star quilt, designed by Cindy Lammon.

Bursting Star is a lone-star-variation quilt design perfect for taking your piecing skills to the next level. With no set-in seams to manage, you can focus on perfecting your strip and diamond piecing, with the help of our videos and download patterns. The quilt finishes at 42″ square.
