I am hand quilting an applique quilt (my first one). I cross-hatched all the main blocks. I was going to cross-hatch the setting triangles and do one line of stitching in the sashing between the blue and pink batiks. I have a 4 petal dogwood stencil that I was going to center on the border. The border is 6" and the stencil flower is 3" x 3" (I guess I should have taken a picture of the stencil, too.)
But now I am not sure at all what I should do. Will the cross-hatching work in the setting triangles? Should I do something different with the sashing? I single line of stitching looks pretty plain. Should I continue the cross-hatching through the sashing? I think the stencil is okay for the border but maybe someone has a better suggestion. Thanks for all you help!
