As ever I am using my walking foot for the quilting. Usually I use the seams to keep the quilting lines straight and this usually ends up being about a quarter inch from the seam. This time I decided to quilt in that way but also close up to the seams as well. I love the tram tracks look I created on the squares which are making up the sashing.
For the foundation pieced stars I wanted to emphasise the star shapes. I have done this by quilting just inside and outside the seams. I love the way in which this makes the shapes stand out and it also creates a nice texture. As ever, I am quilting with Aurifil thread. I opted for white throughout to add to the crisp feel of this quilt.
The backing is a fabric I've only recently discovered, Holly Hobbie by Spectrix in Pretty Flowers White. I think it is ideal and has the right blues and a touch of green to match the front.
There is still plenty of quilting to be done, binding to add, ends to sew in. But surely I can manage a Friday finish!
Today I'm linking up with Lily's Quilts.
