    Toile Stars my way

    A while back another member posted a picture of her black toile stars, but said she didn't know if there was a pattern, didn't mention a designer, only that she had made it at a retreat. So, I studied the pic, compared it to accuquilt's Storm at Sea using the GO and came up with my own pattern. Now that the top is done, I need suggestions on how to quilt it.

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    It came out stunning especially with the toile fabric.

    What a wonderful quilt! I so love toile and black and white. This quilt really stole my heart.

    I bought some of that fabric in the quilt you have on the bed. Seems we have close to the same taste.

    Very nicely done. You could quilt almost any way. I might ditch it or meander with invisible thread to avoid distracting from the sharp contrast,

    I remember that quilt and how much I loved it. You did a great job too. How about SID around the stars and doing a feathered wreath in the large squares. Sorry, I am not more creative. I'm still a newbie at FMQ.
