DWMonday ~ Vintage Stars

As I was debating with myself about which vintage top to quilt, some things came up which left me very frustrated. No more time for debate, I wanted to get going on hand quilting NOW! 

So I went back to the star top and loaded it on the long arm for basting.


I decided to try a little different method this time. I just quilted large squiggles at 4 stitches per inch. 

I did play a little with my drawing app. I wanted an all over design that I didn’t have to mark. Here are some things I tried.


In the end, I decided to go with this.


I’m so glad that I rediscovered hand quilting. It is very therapeutic! And I got this basted just in time as we ended up heading out of town the very next day to see a family member that is gravely ill.  So that meant travel stitching.

Have a great day!

    Do you hand baste when you are hand quilting? Will this quilting be one block at a time? I’m interested in trying this and your Baptist Fans really inspire me! Thanks for sharing your work.
