Over the long weekend, I worked hard on my hunter’s star quilt. It was all worth it. I am pleased with the results.
Now comes the contemplation of how to quilt it. I would like to show off my piecing on the stars, I am very proud of how well I was able to do on my first star block. And I would also like to try to emphasize the secondary arrow blocks.
I think I want to do some straight stitching with the walking foot as much as possible maybe with some free motion in the borders. I’m thinking I will start with some stitching in the ditch along the straight lines that go all the way across the quilt but not go into the borders. I will avoid the lines that cut into an arrow block.
Once this is done, I’m going to try to continue stitching in the ditch on the stars and along the arrows. Possibly without any fillers inside the stars so that they will stand out. However, in the arrows, I am thinking that I might do a couple echo lines inside to accentuate the arrows so they will stand out as well.
It’s way too early for me to decide what I will be doing on the borders. I just saw Angela Walters do a wavy V design on the border of her “Frequency” Rainbow Star Quilt on YouTube. This idea I will be thinking about.
I am open for suggestions. I am very new to this and anything is helpful.
