    Glacier Star quilted by Andi

    My customer brought me the most gorgeous Glacier Star, a paper-pieced pattern by Judy Niemeyer. She wanted custom quilting, not too dense, thread to match, but other than that it was up to me.

    I wanted to play up the circular area in the center of the quilt so I quilted a circle with flame designs around the center star. I know she doesn't like dense background fills, so I wasn't sure what to do in the rest of the cream area around the flying geese. Then I decided that 1/4 inch outlining would be just the thing.

    I like to have continuity in a quilt, so I repeated the 'flame' stitching from the center in the around the black spikes of the large star, and repeated the 1/4 inch outlining in the outer New York Beauty blocks.

    Feathers would have been the obvious choice in the black areas, but I wanted to do something unexpected - so I chose an orange peel fill.

    She was very happy with how it turned out, and I had a lot of fun quilting this one. Hope you enjoy the photos.

    I love what you have done with this quilt but particularly enjoyed the orange peel quilting in the navy blue area. And pass along my compliments to the maker - great piecing job as well.

    It is absolutely gorgeous and I am glad you didn't do the feathers. It seems that is the usual fill in but I think the orange peel goes with the quilt much better.

    Incredible quilt!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.
