Debra sent her Lone Star to me for quilting. I must say she has done a beautiful job piecing it. I especially like her choices of fabrics. They all work together to make the star radiant.
We had decided on the inside of the star to do Continuous Curves which I have done on my DSM but have never done on my longarm so I loaded a practice piece to warm up on. I sketched the star’s diamond shapes on white fabric with a red marker. The thread I used is also red.
My first attempts were, shall we say, less than stellar. 🙂 Don’t worry, Debra, it does get better!
There, that is more like it. It took a while to get the hang of keeping the curves consistant and hitting the intersections every time, but I think I am getting the hang of it.
Now to figure out what to do in the backgrounds.
