You did it again! You are able to think of and quilt out unique quilting that really enhances the quilt. You nailed this one!

Love this and especially your quilting Ardelle. I'm curious as to how long it took you to quilt it. It is gorgeous!

As I am a shop owner and get lots of interruptions, it is really hard to tell how long I actually quilt a quilt. However this one was on the frame for 8 days.

This is my favorite so far, Ardelle.

 

 I love the quilt design.  You even outlined the green before you stitched the block around the big star. The double crosshatching is beautiful. Two questions.

 

When you stitch a line and then stitch away from it, hope this makes sense, how far away?  Do you make the lines 1/4 inch, 1/2 inch???

 

When you stitched the block outline and had to go around the spikes, are you starting and stopping or just going up the spike and back down?

Thank you Libby!

I stitch the lines you talk about, or I call them outlines, 1/2" most of the time. Occasionally 3/4" on larger spaces. And when I do the block outline, I stitch everything ( the outline, background fill etc) as I go and SID around points to get to next section. I avoid spots and starts....
