This week's puzzle quilt, Birth of a Star, was created by Wendy Butler Berns.  She writes, "As a star is born, I imagine a gigantic embryo writhing through the universe. I picture gases building until the pressure is so great a huge explosion occurs, creating fiery, neon colors that shoot and dance across the sky."

The quilt has Machine applique, bobbin drawing, embellishing and machine quilting. It was completed in January, 2002 and measures 44 1/2" x 44 1/2."
