I'm making a quilt for my sister's friend Carla. We settled on Ruby Star Rising after some gentle arm twisting on my part. I then came up with the idea of the quilt being a wall of pictures, framed with Kona charcoal on a Kona coral painted wall. I've taken five of the blocks and photoshopped them into a mock up of the quilt so far just to give Carla an idea of how it's looking.
I am going to quilt as you go on this one so I can quilt around all those frames individually without having to turn an enormous (100" square) quilt round and round and round. Here's one block I quilted already - I'm just wondering whether to add squiggly quilting on the red bits (to flatten them down because the quilting on the frames is making them pouffe up a bit) and diagonal lines (to suggest glass) on the picture bits. Any thoughts? Also, is "pouffe" actually a word and, if so, is it the proper quilting term?
