I replicated the "star" shape from the piecing with quilting in the blank squares. By using some dot-to-dot quilting, I ended up with diamond shapes, which I filled with ribbon candy, and also used orange peal and serpentine throughout the small squares.
I used one layer of Quilter's Dream Poly Select batting, which is very thin and drapey. So, even though it's pretty heavily quilted, this piece is still somewhat cuddly.
My quilting is all free-motion, hand-guided on an APQS longarm quilting machine.
