Erin makes some of the prettiest quilt, and this one is just no exception. It is called Monterrey Medallion, and measures about 72x90". The colors are soothing, and the piecing is so nice and flat. She asked for a custom. This is the last of the quilt tops she sent me back in the early spring...Yea Me!! Love when I actually get to the bottom :-)...especially since she has sent another one already too!
I knew I wanted to do mostly a filler around the smaller stars to conserve the budget a little. It is so easy to let the time get away from you when you are custom quilting when there are a zillion little designs here and there. Because she tends to press seams open, I limited the ditching to hardly at all, and chose designs that diverted the eye from the lack of ditching. With stars, my first inclination is that every point must be outline stitched to preserve the crispness, but not always is true.
