I totally caught up on my baskets for a few days until I get the next group in the mail!
I decided to get busy and quilt the Ohio Star donation quilt made out of men's shirts. This quilt will be for a teen aged boy.
I did a cinnamon roll in each square of the stars. I saw this type of quilting in one of Kim Diehl's books.
In the inner border made out of brick size blocks, I tried some different quilting designs from the book, Free Motion Quilting by Angela Walters. She has some really good "modern" designs for filling in areas. It doesn't have to be a modern quilt, but I probably wouldn't use some of these on a CW type quilt.
I have found a lot of good ideas in Angela's book. The swirl that I used in the outer border is a lot easier than it looks and she has great diagrams on how to do it. Once I get the binding sewn down, I'll take another picture of the whole quilt so you can see that border better.
