I learned a starch method on a blog of Erin Russek. Here's a link if you are interested. She uses mylar but you can use freezer paper, too.

Your quilt and quilting are beautiful. I made a pattern similar to this one but left off the applique as I didn't know how at the time. It turned out pretty boring. The applique you did is so pretty and makes the quilt sing, along with your amazing quilting! And I love the border!!

Thanks, everyone! It was a really fun quilt to make and since everyone in the guild had an opportunity to work on it, everyone feels pride of ownership. Hopefully that will translate to high ticket sales!
