I should be working on bridesmaid stuff for my sister’s wedding, but I would so much rather be quilting. So, instead of doing what I should’ve been doing, I finished a quilt top.
I’ve been wanting to make a big star quilt for awhile. And I’ve been really wanting to use my Simply Color fabrics that I got for Christmas. I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE this quilt. It’s going in our bedroom. I’m going to use it on top of our comforter. It’s going to be 52″ square when it’s finished.
I think for quilting, I’m going to do a lot of straight line echo quilting. I will probably echo quilt the parallelograms that form each of the star points. For the four chevron corners, I might follow every other chevron. And in the chevron triangles, I might echo the triangle. I want it to have fairly heavy quilting, but I also want the quilting to be very precise. I’m still contemplating, but once I get an idea, I usually stick with it.
