    Thanks everyone......I think I will crosshatch the large border for sure........I have quilted some stars on the small border~and the middle border sounds like maybe some decorative stitches.....or maybe just some parallel lines Thanks for all of your suggestions.

    Oma ~ I will try and get a pic posted in the next few days. I have a boatload of company coming in for the weekend, so it may be Monday. I have already put it away for the next couple of days!

    Of course you can quilt all three as one.

    I took a class with Melody Crust, and for one of my quilts she suggested edge to edge quilting across 5 borders.

    Cheers, K

    When added together you have 18" of border. I'd go with an edge to edge across as many borders as it will do, most are ~14" or less wide. It could be a scene of trees, sky/clouds, other birds, a nest, etc.

    A real simple quilting that looks nice is horizontal lines about an inch apart... like piano keys. I did this on one of my quilts and it looked great. I don't see why you couldn't go through all three borders with it.

    I just used horizontal lines 1/2" apart for the first time in triangle borders...looks great! It was a bit labor intensive, but I love the result!
