    I think stitching in the ditch is harder than stitching 1/4" from the seams. How about stitching on the diagonal like others have suggested and use clear thread. If it is going to be a wall hanging you don't have to worry about the scratchy ends left from the clear thread.

    BTW, I love your use of plaid! You did a great job!

    Why would you accent the squares when you want everyone to see the stars. I would quilt it so that the stars pop. You did a beautiful job

    I think the same way, about your quilt top. It is certainly beautiful. Do keep us posted as you decide how you want to finish it. Good work. :D

    I totally agree with PatriceJ. I make "Bottoms Up" Christmas stockings with similar stars on the seat flap. I find that adding the diagonal lines through the stars really does add just the right amount of pizzazz to the overall design. So, if you're up to it...
