    About a month ago I posted a picture of some fabric that I needed to finish my Hunter's Star quilt top. I'd been looking for more of the dark blue bali and when I finally accepted the fact that it just wasn't going to happen, I found something else that I think works well and even though it's not as large as I wanted, it's ok and I'm happy with it. Now, how to quilt this? That is the questions! :-)

    Joanne-what a beautiful quilt. I too am in the process of making one and have had so much fun with this quilt. I used batiks also and I have to say ours are so similar! Did you frame it in black? I'm watching this post to see what suggestions are posted for quilting. Very curious with the finishing details! You really did a great job! :thumbup: :thumbup:

    This is a really hard type of a quilt to quilt plan...I think anyway.

    For me...or my personal opinion I think there are two ways to do this....

    One would be to play up the lights and darks. I would go through and quilt all the white areas in one design. Then I would go through and quilt all the dark areas in another design...then I would pick a complimentary border design.

    The second option would be an all over type of design to soften the points. I am interested to see what others think. :thumbup:

    Looks great. Black (or dark) narrow border is perfect.
