I played around with the body of the quilt, keeping it simple since the quilting wasn't really obvious. But I wanted something special in those stars. I first tried this:
It didn't work. I didn't like the gray thread or the way the design turned out. So...five minutes to quilt the design; over two hours to pick it out <sigh> I quilted the majority of the quilt in gray and was hoping it would look okay on the cream. Can you say, "Not!"???
I quilted the entire top before tackling those stars again. I finally ended up with this design in a very light purple thread. Better, eh?? Its kinda hard to see, but its just some nice loopy swirls to offset the sharp points. (Try clicking on it if you want a better view)
The quilt wasn't really all that large, but Carolyn made sure I had more than enough backing fabric. It was beautiful fabric--I may have to institute a new policy whereby I get to keep all the extra!!
Thanks for stopping by!!!!
