A Quilt for Lucy

Lucy McKie, Granny Sassy Designs, Duvall, WA
Lucy received this gorgeous top as a thank you gift. She said it was wonderfully pieced and was looking forward to quilting something for herself.
It had a lovely white area where she wanted to showcase some quilting. But what would fit? First of all she thought octagons, but then with a bit more thinking a square would do, but it could not be a regular square - it needed to accommodate the triangle tips which were intruding.
In the end - a completely different option was used. A circle - rotated carefully to take account of those pesky triangles, and then little add-ons to take the design out into the corners.
from Lucy:
I have included a close up of what I did around the black stars. I divided your pattern and used just the corners to put in the white "arrow" part and used the crosshatch in the two white squares on either side. Now just to bind it in black.
Again...I thank you so much for the designs. These were just what I wanted and it turned out perfectly!
