I wanted it to be super easy especially for beginning quilters. I included this handy tip at the end. If you're a new machine quilter and just comfortable with stippling, but want to create a custom look - change your thread color to match the fabric you're sewing on. I did a simple star in each of the small squares, but then stippled everything else. By stopping a few times to change to matching thread, I got a custom look with simple quilting.
