This isn’t on my design wall, but it’s on the quilting frame and I’m trying to come up with a nice design to quilt in the Ohio Star blocks. This is a UFO I recently found and it’s big–close to 100” square. I quilted overall swirly ribbons in the sashing strips and cornerstone blocks. Only the star blocks remain and I’d like to do a little custom quilting in them. When I was quilting on my DSM, I would quilt continuous curves on blocks like these but I’m not sure my skills are good enough to do that on the big machine. I need to come up with something that’s a little more forgiving. Haha!
I spent a little time with the whiteboard and I think I’ll try this (fortunately I can quilt better than I can draw!!). It looks like it should be pretty easy and will carry out the ribbon theme that’s in the sashing. I think it will really add a lot if I do continuous curves in the hourglass units so maybe I’ll give it a try. There’s only one way to get better.
