    If you "google" verona quilt by heather finnell" it takes you to the web page for blank quilting and it's one of their free patterns.

    What is it you really want to emphasize in this quilt? Is it the embroidered flower in the center of the stars? Is it the piecing? Is it the stars or do you just want function and not form? The design is so striking and prominent you can easily do an all over on this beauty and it would work quite well. If this quilt came to me, the first thing that came to my mind was feathers in all the white background areas (except the embroidered flower that would be echo quilted) to make the piecing pop. But it will need more then that so I would echo the sawtooth star in quilting in the center square of your squares on point. I would probably do the outline shape in a double quilted line 1/4" apart or I would do a heavy background fill like pebbling to get the shape to pop out. A double continuous curve in the rectangle unit that is formed from your star blocks and your square in square blocks meeting. Border treatments, in the dark blue I would put squares on point to echo that block. A nice feather in the outer border and maybe just SITD on the white border, leaving it unquilted. Hey you asked!
    Wow, thank you! I like a lot of your ideas, esp feathers in the white areas.

    It was a free pattern I got from my LQS many years ago. If they are offering the same pattern, there is an error in it so if you can find it, beware.

    Well does Lambert know a good thing or what? That is a lovely quilt. Know how ever you finish it that it will just add to the beauty. Be sure to show again when you are finished. BrendaK
