    A picture is worth a thousand words. Beautiful doubleknit quilting Bobbielinks! Was the white doubleknit also or just the star?

Also I would recommend quilting from the front of the machine so you can see where the seams are and maybe be able to bypass the heavy seams.
    Here is a picture of a Lonestar doubleknit that I quilted.
