This was the second step in quilting the stars in my quilt. I used the same colour thread and curved my way through the beige plaid squares in these blocks.
I changed to blue thread, and stitched hearts in the larger red triangles.
Then red thread repeated the curves in the small blue plaid squares.
I stitched a "square in a square" through the blue plaid rectangles in the full blocks, then petals in the blue plaid space in the connector blocks.
I hand guide-machine quilt, using a Juki machine set into my sewing table to make a smooth work surface.
