Your llama farm is beyond incredible.  It amazes me how quickly you got it finished.  My granddaughter would adore it.

Amazing quilt - beautiful collection of thread.  The way you have your thread displayed would draw me into wanting to quilt.  Inspirational!

Oh my word, look at that scrumptious thread.  I got rid of most of my embroidery thread thinking I wouldn’t use it. Now I am quilting with rulers and slowly replacing the thread collection! Your color wheels are amazing. 

Texas flag quilt almost done.  I am deciding whether I want to quilt it before attaching the star or not.  This is a commission quilt and honestly I've already spent too much time on it, I decided to add two more rows/columns to make it bigger since I had enough fabric and that cost some time.  Now I'm not sure how involved I need to get on the quilting.  Do I do an all over design, even over the star?  Do I change thread colors, etc etc.  so I'm going to spend this evening practicing some quilting ideas, hoping that will help me decide.

I think it would be great to just put horizontal wavy lines in the white and red sections, and maybe echo quilting for the star section.

Jonna & I are thinking along the same lines!    wavy lines!

Or, what about point to point lines, echoing the outline of the star ... put the lines about 1" apart?
