I used the spiderweb tutorial written by Elizabeth Hartman from Oh, Fransson! for the Sew, Mama, Sew! sew along. Her technique uses a fabric foundation rather than a paper piecing.
I first quilted on both sides of all the diagonal seams and felt that it still needed more but was worried that the center would have too many intersecting lines if I kept on going. My husband suggested stopping the vertical and horizontal quilting just short of the center, and I am pleased with the results - much less busy than if I had continued the stitching straight through.
I added linen borders and bound the edges like a quilt.
I love this guy!
