Friday Flaunt - Feathered Star

Well I would love to say that I have finally finished my feathered star but alas that is not the case.  However I have finished most of it and so figured I would post a picture with requests for quilting ideas.


As can be seen from the photo (hopefully) I have echo quilted the inner sections but I am unsure as to what to do with the outer sections.  I have drawn several lines trying different ideas but haven't been happy with any.


Now as may be seen from the quilting I am slightly, ok let's be honest greatly, restricted by the fact that I couldn't free motion quilt to save my life or even yours.  Thus the quilting will need to be something that can be completed with a walking foot!


What do you suggest?
PS just noticed that I have posted the photo sideways it should be in portrait setting with the two part lines going across the bottom :)

Hi Cinzia
I love your designs. I think you should work on Tracks next and as a lap quilt.

Straight diagonal lines across each corner block, at about 1" intervals would work. Or, you could echo quilt a series of triangles in the corner blocks, repeating the sawtooth triangles. When I look at the brown block as a stand-alone block, I see a Bear's Paw. Could you machine quilt a Bear Paw in each corner? Then, quilt diagonal straight lines 1" apart in the border, beginning with a triangle shape in the middle of the border strip. Guess I have too many suggestions! Let me know if you want to chat through any of them.
