Thanks for the comments but the sad thing is I DID start quilting from the center. There’s some outline and ditch stitching in addition to the stars and I was going to see if I had a small button for the door but I guess what’s bothering me is the difference in the density of the quilting between the center and the fans in the border.
I’ll have to go back and add quilting to the inside….I’m just not sure what to put so I’ll have to think about it some. I can pull out Sandy Bonsib’s book on Folk Art Quilts and Gwen Marston’s Liberated Quilting book and see if I can pick up any additional ideas.
I’m sitting here looking at it now and it doesn’t look as unbalanced – I think trying to get an angle that showed the quilting in the photo last night also exaggerated the puffiness.
I’ll continue on……I can do this!
