This brightly coloured scrappy quilt was very puffy — I think there were lots of bias edges in the blocks.
I started by stitching in the ditch with a thin Deco-Bob thread around all the large blocks and their yellow borders to stabilise the puffiness as far as possible. For the main part of each block, I stitched a large ‘wonky star‘ in yellow, with a secondary smaller wonky star inside the square made by the larger star.
My aim was to keep the geometric look of the blocks while stitching them enough to flatten out some of the puffiness.
I left all the borders and sashings unstitched.
