Community Quilt 233

1 11 2015

This quilt had odd-shaped motifs in the blocks. How to quilt it? I started by stitching in the ditch around each half star while I waited for inspiration to come 😉

Eventually I decided to stitch half circles ‘behind’ each half star, with a quarter-inch echo — I used my semi-circular Handi Quilter rulers for these. I filled the background with a large meandering stipple.
