    I am thinking about your question. Brain is not functioning how. However, suggest you go to www.quiltingstencils.com and look at their catalog to see designs that might give you some inspiration. There might not be anything there other than the 4 patch centers that would be a useful design due to the irregular shapes but could get you thinking. Will you long arm or domestic machine quilt this?

    Long arm, but if I was to do stitch in the ditch I would much rather do it on the regular machine.. Thank you for the suggestion. This quilt top is still sitting waiting for me to get brave and also continue practicing my feathers.

    I think I would do continuous curve in the points with some type of background quilting (pebbling, peacock feathers ...) in the white background. Then do feathers or a special design just in the curved grey pieces. This is LOVELY! Where are you in SD? My DD es stationed at Ellsworth in Rapid City. (she is deployed at the moment tho)

Just a crazy idea.

    Great idea, I will have to try it.

    One suggestion. I took a class with Carla Barrett. It was called Quilt Whisperer. She sometimes takes a picture of a quilt top and will 'doodle' on it to show how she would quilt it. She might take yours and use it for a class sample. Her designs are over the top! here is her website.

    I think she just finished another Quilt Whispere class, but plans to repeat it.

    Last quilt I made I used a wool batt. It was like quilting in buttah! Just have to remember not to put it in the dryer tho. They can be machine washed (in cold if I remember right), but air dried.

    Thanks, Judy
