Being a longarm quilter for a profession always offers creative challenges. When a quilt walks through the door for custom quilting and there is a lot of blank space it offers a lot of design opportunities and a chance to push myself.  Verna brought this striking quilt to me made out of Oakshott fabrics and before I could put it on the frame I had to work out a plan for what I needed to do.  Sometimes this takes longer that the actual quilting, but the planning is always worth the effort.

Above is a detailed picture of the centre of the quilt where I have replicated the eight-pointed star block in dense quilting.  I used this design technique to draw the eye into a focal point and it was the centre piece to a four pointed star that I designed for the quilting, to sit behind the main piecing that Verna had done.  The photo does not show off the special quality of the Oakshott fabrics, but with the texture of the quilting, it really brought it alive.

And below is a picture of the back of the quilt where you can probably see more of the quilting that was done and shows the overall quilting design which I added to the quilt.  You can see the colour thread changes and the structure that quilting can add to a quilt.  I think this quilt maybe heading to a new home, but for now I think Verna is hanging on to it.
