    Best way to quilt top.

    Well, I've finally resolved the backing issues and now I'm stumped on how to quilt the top. I've watched the Craftsy course on split batting quilting for a small machine (Pfaff 2170), which was helpful. But I can't figure out the best way to quilt it. I'm using Warm and Natural for the batting. Do I do Stitch in the Ditch, or free motion something; maybe outline the leaves in the border, but what to do with the 25 blocks. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. What would you do?

    A picture would be nice. Well that being said, For me a quilting is different every time I quilt something. It is as personalized as the making of the top. The quilt will kind of talk to me and say where it needs to be quilted, and then there are areas that I want to put something a little more special.

    There are tons of books on the quilting design. Try lookng at the library for one or two. It is just another skill to be researched and played with like the top you made.

    What pattern did you use? It would help to get some ideas that way if we knew.

    I also use a Mac & have no problem posting pictures. Check your file size - it may be too large.

    Why does having a Mac make a difference?

    The largest your pictures can be is 800 pixels on one side. If you shrink your picture down (I use GIMP, a free program, though maybe not available for Macs?), you can probably post it.
