This color block quilt makes use of a clever design element; an appliqued star vine in opposite corners. This, however, creates a large empty space in the alternate border corners.
I could feather the space, but I already envisioned a funky feather in each of the color block areas. So, how about copying the star vine into the space in thread? Like the ghost of a previous star vine?
I traced the original star vine on vellum, cut out the full piece, pinned it into place, and traced it on the space with a piece of chalk. Stitched in black thread, with a medium meander around it, and it just floats there, seen or not seen depending upon the lighting.
Here are a couple of views of the funky feathers, that radiate out from the middle of the piece. Another idea that worked. Yippee!

it is only the imaginary ones that are unconquerable.”
