Star Pulse {Finished Lap Size Quilt}

The cleaning my husband gave the foot pedal for my Juki has continued to be all that I've needed (no more accidental use of the thread cutter), and with a plan in place for the free motion quilting of my lap size Star Pulse quilt, I was able to get the quilt finished this week.
