On the quilting front, I finished a quilt top yesterday.
I've had the fabric for more than a year, and had designed the quilt around the fabric. So it's been on the to-do list for a while. I've been experimenting with different settings and decided to set the blocks as a square-in-square so I could stitch up as a straight setting (rather than on point -- which can be a pain IMHO). I hope that the secondary star pattern surrounding the corner blocks comes through in the design since that was my intent.
I've developed a new appreciation for negative space in quilts because of the amazing quilting that can be added. Hence the light blue and pink triangles surrounding five of the blocks. I can just imagine some great quilting in there -- perhaps feathers since this is a fairly traditional quilt.
Don't ya just love basket quilts?
