i was missing a few pieces and so it took me awhile to get started. once i secured all of the missing prints, i delayed on choosing a pattern and a background fabric. finally, i decided on the moda love quilt (big huge blocks) and the navy background to match the one navy print in the collection.
since i wasn’t super duper in love with this quilt, i was able to let myself experiment a bit with the quilting. usually i’m terrified to mess up a quilt that i love or that is for someone else. but, i had time and wasn’t worried about ruining it, so i opted for some various techniques. it might be hard to see, but i echoed the star in the navy background. and did some starbursty type free motion quilting in the star parts.
