Blue & White Ohio Star

You know how I love two-color quilts, well this blue and white Ohio star came in and I got real excited!  Those big white areas are perfect for quilting.  It was pieced by Marianne Murphy, for her daughter.  She selected a Celtic knot design.  The edges will be scalloped, except for the very top.  Another big quilt (99x99).

 The knot design was quilted in the center of each square.  Echoing around the design several times created a secondary, braid-like pattern.  It connects it all together.  The blue stars stand out, with simple quilting to outline all the points.   
 This is the bottom and I modified the quilting to fit in the scalloped edge.
Hope she likes it!
