    I do sit down machine quilting, so I scribble and do puzzle pieces all over my quilts, that would look terrific on this scrappy...and by the way...I LOVE IT !!!

    Love the quilt and colors. Could you let us know the name of the pattern and if in a magazine or book the name also. Thanks. Wish it was for me but after 50 years (feb 2nd) I don't think I would get married again.

    I would echo stitch inside the stars, put hearts in the little diamonds between the stars, and play in the big white areas with wreaths or celtic knots or words or stippling, or some of each!

    I agree with quiltE......There is a lot of color action in your quilt. sid in stars and a heart in the plain white areas would be a great finishing touch.

    I would SID along the sashings and do a medium size grid, about 1 inch, in the white blocks. Since the quilt is rectangular, I wouldn't add curves. However, I really like the look of grids and find it is easier on a DSM than feathers or wreaths.

    I too would stitch around the inside of each star, and I would also stitch around the inside of each square block. This would have the same design on the back that is on the front, only not in color. I often do many of my quilts like this, so they seem reversible. Then perhaps do some stippling in the center of each square. Maybe just echo the squares, that way it doesnt look too busy. I do not do feathers, and do not have a long arm, so I just have to rely on straight stitch in the ditch, some free motion and plain stippling. Whatever you do will look beautiful.

    Love your quilt! Definitely SITD, but I'd handquilt a different design in each group of 2 white squares. A heart, a few different flowers, the date of their wedding, their names, a wreath, a sun & moon, etc. You can find lots of things to quilt in those blocks, and that would make it extra special for the happy couple. If you don't want to handquilt then I'd stick with something easy, like a large heart in each of the 4 block squares.

    Name of similar quilt

    Four Patch Star

    http://www.mccallsquilting.com/conte...atch_Block.pdf

    I found this pattern at McCall Quilting, while similar it is not the same. But the star could be done in a scrappy pattern.

    This pattern was used as a mystery quilt project in our guild...they called it a Mexican Cross.

    Many thanks for your input. This was my first time posting a question on this board and was really surprised at all of the responses. I am going to spend the next couple of days thinking about your ideas before I start anything. I do like the idea of echo quilting the star and possibly using a heart in the squares...or yes, I could do a grid because that sounds doable on a domestic machine. Or, the pumpkin seed quilting design sounds like something I could handle. Oh...decisions, decisions....for " Mexican Cross" quilt.
