About Radiant Collection fabrics for this pattern The blue, red & yellow quilt shown above is made with fabrics from the Radiant Collection I created for Blank Quilting in 2005. The starburst fabric and Navy panels are still available at www.ranaemerrillquilts.com. You can use Navy panels for the background, then make the compass part of the pattern from regular fabrics. BTR-3760: Panels, Navy blue only. These panels are 24” x 44.” The point where all the radiating lines meet is the “center point.” This design goes through light, medium and dark as it graduates from one color to another. BTR-3761 Starbursts There are dark, medium and light starbursts with radii of up to 5”. Parts of the pattern ask you to choose light, medium or dark circles.
