With all the trees done I needed to move on to the large white space on the center of the quilt. I had been really torn about how to quilt it. So I sat in front of it for about 5 minutes. And then the design started letting itself be known.
I had wanted to keep the quilt modern. And that is what it was asking for. So I got out a ruler and started marking. I started by drawing 3 concentric 8 point stars. I decided to keep with the same elements I used in the trees – pebbles and squiggly lines. The smallest star got a plain stipple, which didn’t keep with the theme, but I wanted the inside to be tight. The next star got pebbles.
And the final star got the squiggly lines.
Yep. Pretty happy with how it was turning out. There was still quite a bit of unquilted white space next to the trees. And I still didn’t know what I was going to do. So, yet again, I slept on it. Tomorrow, maybe the quilt would tell me the next step.
