I think I would leave it as it is - I love the differentiation on the back with the empty HSTs.

Otherwise what about a simple motif in each of the HSTs?
I might look as though I'm talking to you, but inside my head I'm sewing.

I think I would leave it as is or just do a 1/4" from the seam line inside each triangle (is that what you meant by echo quilt it?

Did we decide what to do with the coloured halves of the HST's ??  Im a bit worried about them not being quilted when it comes to being washed.

That link isn't working but one of the previous links is, so not quite invisibuble.

For the coloured HSTs how about shadow quilting??  Just one triangle about 1/4 inch inside the seams for each piece.

What's the maximum quilting distance recommended for the batting you use?

The quilting distance for that batting is 8”, so time to check your hypotenuses :-)

If my maths is correct you should be OK to leave the quilting as it is as the longest edge will be just over 7”.

I love the back of the heart as well!

I'm not a PQ expert at all, but personally as the coloured fabrics are patterned in some way, I like the fabric to not be distracted by quilting, plus I also like the wrinkled look the unquilted fabric gets when its washed; it adds its own texture.  As for rules about batting and maximum distances I've no idea, and/but I am a rule breaker generally  :P :P

I only quilt minimally and it's always been ok.
@Iminei you haven't said how your 2 day workshop went.... who was there, what happened etc. Can you post about it, or have I missed it??
