    Don, so good to see your work. Sorry I don't have any suggestions. But I love what you have done so far. Maybe a elongated diamond?

    Wow, Don -- your center star quilting is great; looks very nice with the same stitching in the small pieces of the arcs. If you think it needs further quilting, maybe simply repeat the stitching you did on the smaller pieces, 1/4" around the inner edge of the eye shape. That would complement the wonderfully stitched center stars without competing with them. It's always inspiring to see your excellent work.

    I was thinking a section of what I would call intertwined rope, but I think this suggestion is a better description of what I was picturing.

    Been following your wedding ring quilt - nice squaring up! Love your quilting stitches and the addition you did to the template. Cross hatching in the eyes?

    How about doing one of the long diamond blades from your stencil (the one with the inset little diamond)?

    Both quilts are beautiful !! The wedding ring would look fabulous in my living room. But I want the purple one!!

    Both quilts are beautiful as always. I would just quilt 1/4" inside on the eye pieces. You don't want to take away from that beautiful star design you've done. Your hand quilting is amazing. Such precision and such patience!
