Triangle Tree Skirt – Quilting the Center

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.
