Quilt Layout

I started doing a basic layout with the star blocks.  Obviously this isn't going to be lap sized even with an extra row or two.  EQ6 insists that it is, but it would need some very wide borders.

I've pulled some more pug pictures to make into blocks.  I figured today I'd work on the star blocks.

Part of me wonders if there should be some sashing in between the blocks to make a border/picture frame of sorts.  However; I don't want it to be overkill.

I need to pull out my Topaz and see about creating a tapered satin stitch that would work for the wrinkles on the pugs.  It does have the taper satin stitch; it's just a matter of playing with the settings.  I'd FMQ them but it just makes a mess.

Back to making star blocks!
