Last week, I showed how I quilted the background of the star blocks. This week, I will show how I quilted the center butterfly square.
I pulled out my Quilter's Preview Paper to see what design might look nice.
Maybe a star over the block?
No! Maybe some continuous curve over the block?
No! Maybe some cross-hatching over the block?
No! Maybe some swirls over the block?
No! Maybe swirls behind the butterfly?
Yes! The Preview Paper saved me from a lot of un-stitching. That stuff is worth it's weight in gold!
And a view of the finished block:
