1987 OHIO STAR BUNDLE
... another design request ... she wants the stars to pop. I suggested ditching the star patches and using thread to match the burgundy with some fairly dense quilting to help the puffy pop happen ... and ... here is what we came up with ...
There are 6 designs in the bundle and her layout includes an additional border which allows for the "shadow" blocks to continue into that space. The patchwork is done with a horizontal setting, but when the stars are used for quilt design placement, an on-point effect is created fooling the eye and allowing the stars to pop even more.
