This is a detail shot of a JN pattern called Desert Sky. I used BL gold thread top and bobbin throughout.

The paper-pieced stars were quilted with a design in the spikes and no quilting in the opposite spikes. That made the circles the focus.

 I figured with the odd-shaped background--the L-shape, squares and rectangles for the border, I needed a meander-y overall and decided on ferns. Not very desert-y but a graceful choice.

She was very happy with it.

Love the ferny feathers for the background, it created such nice texture and the circles do pop!

I love these Judy Niemeyer  quilts.  Every time I see one, I want to make it.  And, I have a Glacier Star of my own waiting to be quilted.  This is a very pretty quilt, and I love the look of the ferns in the squares.  Very pretty, as always.

You're right the circles do stand out and they look nice that way.  Always a new idea from Linda.
