Playing with Quilting
This is more exciting. What does it look like in combination with other Ohio Stars?
What if I stipple the white background?
This will make the stars stand out. I like it.
There are 2 kinds of quilting in this design - foreground quilting and background quilting. This is a common occurance in piecing; the purple fabric forms stars in the foreground, the white fabric exists as background. This is not common in quilting, usually the quilting creates a background texture and is secondary to the pieced pattern. However in this case it's different; the echo quilting is dark and combines with the purple fabric to create the foreground image; the stippling is light and creates a texture on the white background.
