    BETH'S QUILT paper pieced, how to hand quilt it now

    Here is the next one i am going to quilt, my first paper pieced top. I am thinking maybe feathers in the border, and then just 1/4 inch in from seams for the rest. Am open to any and all ideas.

    Your quilt is beautiful. I am in awe when I see a paper pieced top, because I have only done very small pieces, and know how much work they are. Great job.
    A home is built of peace and love,
    and not of wood and stone,
    a place where happiness lives
    and memories are sewn.

    Great color/fabric combination in that quilt!!

    I would quilt it to make the red stars stand out on top. Perhaps feathers in the white star background and micro stiple the black star background. Outline the red star with SITD.

    Beautiful!!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.
