Design Wall

Lava Lamps is almost completely quilted!  Check back later for more pictures.  But as always I can't finish one project without looking toward the next one.  Remember this one?

It is from McCall's Design Star Challenge.  I need to quilt "Viola's Jewelry Box" but I am having issues with how to quilt it.  So I need some advice!  How would you quilt this if it was yours?  To give you a reference the pieces in the nine patch blocks (look in the corner of the star blocks) are one inch pieces.  Thanks in advance to any suggestions you have!

  1. Glad you're getting to quilt this! initial idea that I see is to DITCH the diagonals and quilt within them, and then come up with some type of star pattern that mimics the star in the arrowhead block and quilt it into the remaining block which is kind of the background. Or maybe intead of a star, bring the flower pattern in the border into that 'background' block as a complete flower. Enjoy the process!
