Quilting Ideas for the Birthday Quilt May 28, 2013Posted by Pam in KC in Uncategorized.
Several years ago I participated in a birthday block exchange. I was given the blue and white Pennsylvania blocks and combined them yellow and blue stars I made. The quilt has been in the stack of tops waiting for quilting inspiration. I also had to be certain the quilt did not want borders. It still has not told me what color binding it wants.
I found the perfect backing, believe it or not on the clearance aisle at Wal-mart. Two 100% cotton 60 x 120 tablecloths.
I’ve decided I want to quilt feathers in the star blocks, but I’m at a loss on what to do in the setting triangles and Pennsylvania blocks. This is what I have drawn so far.
It’s hard to see, but I’ve quilted feathers in the corners of the blocks. I’m not sure what to put in the side triangles either. Does anyone have any ideas?
