stars and stripes ...

















With a bit of "help"? I put together this top. The stars were made earlier. Not sure how to quilt it...

Lykke til med finishen, det fikser du så lett som en plett.

Så nydelig det ble! Jeg ser for meg lange diagonale håndquiltede linjer;) Fargene er virkelig vakre! God helg, Una

You certainly love stars! I have no idea how to quilt it, but in the ditch looks pretty good to me.

I love all of the stripes in this one. You have me thinking....I think the next quilt will have multiple stripes.

I know I'm in the minority but I still like big loose meandering on large quilts.

I like your very cheerful quilt.
Since you have so many straight lines and angles in this one, maybe quilt it with a curvy or circular pattern?

Lovely helper Marit!
I do like that quilt as well

Oh, I love this one! I think your fabric choices are perfect - love the scrappiness. And love the wonky stars! And your beautiful kitty adds just the right touch!

I love to put curvy designs on quilts with lots of straight lines in them. Just my opinion, is all.

What a lot of different red and white stripes. it is great looking. I would probably quilt it with loops and stars.

Janet said...

What a lovely quilt, I love the colors and pattern. I love the small quilt you just finished as well, It makes me smile.

Clever! I like how you are using those stripes.

I'm thinking a baptist fan would look great on this. Another idea would be to quilt diagonal lines in the stars, double them up. Start 1" from the corner, then another a 1/4" away, then another an inch, then 1/4", (clear as mud?), and a feather medallion in the plain block. Oh, and why is it that the cats always need to be on the quilts? I love it!
