Now where will this quilting design work best in our quilts?

Desert Sand works great to fill in a space that has already been stitched in the ditch or has a stitched outline of some sort. You use the outline to travel stitch and echo the lines of the design to fill up your quilting space.

We're going to use this design to machine quilt the center star of the Cabin Fever block and fill it with beautiful flowing texture.

What do you think of Desert Sand? Have you ever used this design in your quilts? Share your experience in the comments below!

Let's go quilt,
