She finishes at 12" square.
I used 13 different colored fabrics and 10 different kinds of fabrics to create this Sun.
I was directly inspired by this picture from NASA.
You can find the picture and lots of information about it at NASA's website. I should mention here that NASA has a free use policy on their photographs as long as you're not selling anything.
The back. I may even like the back better than the front.....
Also, make sure you stop at Elizabeth's Blog, OPQ, Leanne's Blog, She Can Quilt, and Betty's Flickr Page for their reveals.

Rachel, the more I look at this mini the more I like it - it just sings out somehow! I wondered how you came upon this idea so thanks for sharing the NASA mention. And yep, the back is just perfect! Great job!
I love it! It is a great representation of your inspiration picture too. I love how it suggests the diversity of the things that make the stars or the world and that they are all parts of what makes up the light.
The back of this piece took my breath away!!!! It really captured the essence of the sun for me.
Brilliantly executed, marvelously expressed. I like how you branched out of our usual cottons, and went for different textures, reflections, and variety of fabrics--a true art quilt if I ever saw one.
I think your quilting really shows off the radiance of the sun, as we are the beneficiaries of all its rays and warmth and sunlight. I like that you chose the sun as your fire inspiration--it really is the primal fire in our universe.
Bravo! Such a terrific quilt!!
The FMQ really makes this quilt. I love the back too.
This is so beautiful and creative....nice quilting too : )
This is stunning and the fabric on the back is absolutely perfect for a sun :)
I love it! Great idea Rachel and well executed. Very clever!
