On The Frame 1/12/15

This is a quilt for a customer, It is a series of large and small stars with some plain blocks in between. After talking through various design options we decided on quilting that would allow the stars to “pop” and an all over thread color of white. Although the quilt has some pink in it she wanted to stay away from “girlie” motifs and try to keep the design friendly to her husband and teen sons as well as her and her daughter.

The same design is being quilted in both the large and the small stars. I decided to frame the star with a loopy border and then accent the points of each star with curved lining inside the white.

Here you can see the borders taking shape. I plan to quilt a swirl/star pattern inspired by fireworks. Once the borders are quilted I will go back through the quilt top filling in the plain squares with quilting that is not too dense but that will stop these areas from puffing up and detract from the stars.
