I used the Asian feather design from Carla Barrett's blog. I just meandered the feathers around the outer cream spaces and the larger cream squares. I still can't get over how much fun this design is!
I stared at the Asian patterned star for a while contemplating the possibilities before I decided on a photo I had seen on Pinterest of one of Judi Madsen's quilts. Her blog, Green Fairy Quilts, has some great ideas and amazing quilting.
Then I decided to do something a little more linear on the outer borders to contrast all the swirling in the center. I quilted straight lines on the final border with 1/4" lines in between. I think it helped accent the circles instead of detracting from the design by quilting something busy on top. And the best part was I could follow the circles and quilt the lines without having to mark:)
