How to quilt it…

I made these beautiful paper pieced blocks and wasn’t sure how to quilt them…

(I made 1 for a pincushion, but who wants to sew just 1?  So I made 5 and used 1 for the pincushion and 4 for a mini quilt…)

This is the final picture of the star center…

IMG_0787I started with wavy quilting radiating out from the white star.  Then I used a tape template cut into a circle

I stitched around the tape circle and then removed it…

IMG_0791Then I add pebbles in the center using the figure 8 method…

I filled in all of the spaces between the pebbles and ended up with the above block.

I still have to work in my threads, but I really love the way this makes those pebbles pop!

Thanks for stopping by!

    “Tape templates” sound like a good thing. I fear all marking pens. The quilting design fits the fabric design very well.
