There’s still a lot of quilting to do. I need to decide exactly how it will go. I think I need to do rows of stars in the red borders and plain edge quilting in the pieced border.


I’ve got the pattern of curves and stars in the open bars, and individual stars in some open places.


The boxes end up looking like part of the bars where they touch, so I might want to outline the boxes.



The large blue box? I might add more applique, or I might use two or three rows of stars.

#1 Son came over to watch a soccer game and my husband and I grilled burgers for our lunch. Then I got back to the quilting. I’m hoping to finish that up in the next couple of weeks in order to stay on track with my needlework plans.
