Esther's whole blog is worth spending some time reading. And her quilting is magnificent. Looks like a little McTavishing going on there, doesn't it?

I'm known for just doing grid quilting so on one hand I want to step out of the box but on the other, I think the blocks would look fantastic quilted in a grid but I also want to do some quilting Love the way Esther did hers.

I really like the way Esther did her quilting using the teardrop echoing. Judy in AZ

I've been collecting pictures of quilting designs I like. I am needle turning and now I've seen someone who quilted lines on leaves and flowers on their applique that I love. I've never done that on my applique so I'm thinking of doing that. And then I saw a teardrop shape that had 2-3 echos as background quilting on an applique quilt. The teardrops molded around the applique in different sizes and was really beautiful. It was on this blog which I probably got from somewhere on this site so Esther if you are a TQS member, I hope you don't mind me sharing this.

Okay, I am NOT really an overachiever--really I'm not! I have already quilted Jan-July on my machine appliqued blocks. Here is my thinking--if I am going to get both quilts done before next fall--I have to start now. Since the black background one is all done on machine, I decided that machine quilting would be perfect. I have gone around each piece, close to the piece with either clear or black thread. Then I have done a cross-hatch (diagonally) behind everything (I did not go over the applique pieces). I may do the same on the other but it will be done by hand.

I'm thinking about cross-hatching, too. Sue, I will probably cross-hatch outside of the stars. I think I'm going to try to find a design that might look good on the points of the large stars. Lynn, I like the "quilt as you go" idea. Judy in Torrance

Well, believe it or not, I am all ears on how to quilt this quilt! The first one I made, I let a friend quilt for me. She did large stippling in the background behind the applique, and then did a beautiful feathered vine in the outer white border. I have made the blocks for a second quilt , and will be quilting it myself. Yes, I'm a glutton for punishment - my quilt is committed to be in two places at once, so I decided to just make another quilt. I am leaning toward echoing or cross-hatching the second quilt, as you all have mentioned -- but I'm still trying to figure out if cross-hatching across those big background stars will look good... or should I just do the cross-hatching outside of the background stars? Sigh... decisions, decisions!

I have thought a little about the quilting on these blocks and it's not going to be easy to decide. Cross-hatch and close stippling or other close filler have come to mind. I'll be really interested to hear the other suggestions that come out of this forum discussion.

Has anyone out there decided on how they might quilt this one?

I was just looking at it and thinking I might like to begin and do it 'quilt as you go' as in Georgia Bonesteel, and thinking, hmmmmm. Now what would look good.

Course my old standby is 'cross-hatching' and Alex Anderson as she often does that in the background of blocks. Then of course there is 'echo' but it is a bit too busy for that I think.

Any other ideas?

I actually haven't even determined my sashing fabric yet! ha
