The yellow Ohio Star crib quilt which was supposed to be a quick-finish project has turned into the opposite. Like Circe, those feathered wreaths in the centre alternate blocks kept calling my name so I continued the same motif into the setting triangles. I am stopped now to think on what comes next.
The thinking has taken as long as the actual sewing. I am torn between quilting down the white background spaces around the stars to make them stand out more...or leave them as is just outline quilted. Perhaps all the star needs is a little swirl in the centre. I don't want this piece quilted to death, as it is a baby quilt and should be soft and cuddly. It needs space to pouf. After the stars are thought out, then the thinking turns to the outer border.
I expect with all those feathers in the centre, the border motif will be a no-brainer...and my brain could use a little rest!
