Making Visual Choices

Vary Techniques
To Create Interest
This quilt design calls for 5 Ohio Star blocks to be pieced and then outlined several times with heavy stitching. In addition 4 Ohio Star blocks are stitched between the pieced  blocks. The background would then be quilted with a textural design.

Using piecing, and stitching make this more interesting than of it were simply 9 pieced blocks.

Piecing, embroidery, applique, embellishing and quilting are just a few of the techniques you can combine to make your quilts more exciting.

  1. Oooh, this really appeals to me! Looks quick and easy to create a top of any size for practicing some FMQ on something more functional than a sample sandwich.
