Opinions gladly accepted.
Well I finally finished the "4 hour quilt". Only took me a little over a week!!! Now I'm in the "oh no, how do I quilt this" stage. It measures about 60X72. I've rarely had so much area plain to quilt in. The background is a faint yellow green allover dot pattern. Despite the photo it's a rectangle. Photographing with an old iphone on the floor isn't great.
Some thoughts are, vining leaves on the border, echo quilting the center shape then something else in the interior green space??? Alternate thought, echo the zig zag in the floral border, but then what do I do with the rest?? I'll me machine quilting it.
The reason for choosing the star pattern in the first place is that it's a gift for a dear lady who is an Easter Star. Thought if I did floral or leaf motifs in the green space it might detract from the star. This sweet woman drives my 93 year old Mom to lunch after the gym twice a week and then I pick her up from lunch. That may not sound like much, but my mother has increasingly severe dementia and the free time for my husband and I to "do lunch" or whatever is great.
Anyway, didn't mean to get so wordy, would just like input.
