    Help! Help! Help!
    I have looked and looked at this quilt top I made almost a year ago and am unable to come up with an idea on how to quilt it. I would like to enter it in our local quilt show( in 3 weeks) but am in a brain lock!! Please if anybody has ideas I'd love to hear them. It is a pattern from Karen Stone Paperpiecing called McCommas Beauty.

    Your quilt is breathtaking. I can't help with the quilting design, but I sure hope you can find one you like and get this into your quilt show because it deserves to be there.

    It is stunning! Can't help with a quilting pattern, but would like to see the finished product.

    Your quilt is spectacular. Given the amount of work in it you should do custom quilting. I would SID all of the triangles and star points to get them to pop. Then you can do fancy feathers, leaves, whatever in the big light spaces to kind of mush them down and the triangles will stand out.

    Beautiful, I agree with the feathers, ect in the light areas, and the outline quilting would really make your hard work on the piecing stand out.
