I'd originally decided to outline the centers with stitch, but hated the look of the first one. Instead I decided to use fillers to pop them up.

To keep the budget in check, there is no ditching in the quilt AT ALL.
Instead, the quilting fills the space right up to, or over, the seams so they are effectively secured. I call this approach to custom quilting, Down and Dirty! (aka - Fast and FUN!)
Alternating swirls and pebbles in the blocks added interest - swirly designs seemed to work with the space theme of the quilt!
|Pebbles in the next...and so on!|
Even though the quilting in each block varies, framing all of them with wishbones makes them feel like they belong together!
Swirls and wishbones from the blocks are repeated in the borders - larger in scale - but they further unify the parts of the quilt.
|Repeating motifs in a different scale adds a sense of unity|
Simple S-curves were used in the striped sashing...they are impossible to see from the front of the quilt - but they're there, I promise!
