I'm hand quilting my Stars around the Garden quilt. For the appliqued center and boarder, I'm outlining the applique and cross-hatching. For the sashing, I've made up a vine with leaves similar to what's in the applique. My question is how should I quilt the star blocks. I've had one suggestion to outline quilt the triangles and squares in each block, but I was thinking of doing the same overall pattern in each block or at least in the center square of each block since they are similar in size. Here is my quilt. I've finished quilting the center and almost finished with the sashing. I would like to do the blocks next.
beautiful quilt brenda
fabulous work as to the star blocks, the only thing i could suggest is stictch in the ditch on all seams of the star pieces or radial lines from the center to sides of block
great work roze
Thanks for the ideas Roze and everyone else. I'm just about ready to start the blocks unless I do the boader first. I am planning on cross-hatching there like I did in the center.
