    What a gorgeous quilt! I love paper piecing. It can be tedious, but the results are worth it.

    Yours is the most stunning ~ breathtaking ~ paperpieced version of Karen Stone's curved designs I've EVER seen. I think such perfect points scream for curvey feather quilting. This quilt will win prizes when it is finished! Thank you for showing it to us!

    Love it, love it, love it. Get it in the show! It is absolutely stunning, you should do very well at the show.

    Good luck, if this were a public voting system at the show you would get my vote for sure!

    Great job, hugs Gail

    Beautiful - It would take a more experienced quilter than I to advise, but I know you will find a way

    I agree with the previous posting that you should outline stitch in the ditch to emphasize the main points pattern, In the big pieces maybe you could just stitch 1/4 inch apart in an echo all the way to the center. The geometry might be nice.

    The quilt is beautiful, it needs to be in the show. I liked the idea of SID around the points to bring them out. Good Luck and let us know how you did.It really is stunning.

    How about some kind of design in the background, gray, on-point squares for starters? If you can figure out feathers or something to put into those areas, maybe the rest will fall into place. Good luck - great quilt! I love Karen K. Stone's quilts and have done one myself!

    I just went to a class given by Helen Squire. Her rule is if the design is geometric it needs flowing quilting design. I think the feathers are a brilliant idea for you amazing quilt. In flowing cables maybe along the sashing lines. And a larger flowing feather design in the larger blocks. Don't forget the borders.

    Ooops, just went and looked again. No borders, so skip that recommendation. Find something beautiful and flowing and audition it over the blocks. Whatever you choose will be lovely.

    Wow, can't help you with the quilting either, but do get a quilting pattern that matches your quilt design. Maybe star patterns. A professional quilter would really help, and yes do enter it in a quilt show, a job well done.

    That is gorgeous!! Haven't a clue about the quilting,
    but I'm drooling too much to even think of something
    like that. I had no idea that people could do such
    marvelous work in quilting till I found this forum!!

    I'm in awe of such work!! And I'll bet that you win
    whatever event you enter this lovely thing in!

    Actually, I've been thinking the same thing - but maybe you are one of those talented people who produce their best work under pressure!

    It's beautiful! I also made Karen Stones McCommas Beauty and can't believe how different they look with different fabrics and color placement!

    It's beautiful. I can understand why you would hesitate. It's so lovely you would hate to mess it up.

    I would want to accentuate the points. And those open areas just call for a beautiful design.

    Please share with us when you get it quilted. It's so stunning.
