I have been looking at this Twinkling Stars quilt for some time trying to decide on the "right" quiting design for it. Something curvy to go in around the stars. It has been sitting in the sewing room being a weight on my mind.
I finally realized that there is no one right design. Whatever I do will be right as long as I am happy with the result. The quilting process should be fun and not stressful.
So I jumped in with a mini swirl pattern to fill in around the stars. I am leaving the stars unquilted so that they will "float" above the background a little. I like the result so far.
I'll try not to think about how big the quilt is and just concentrate on the part I am working on.
This is going to take a LONG time.
But that is OK. I enjoy the process.
I'll have plenty of time to think about how to quilt the wide border area.
