I tried a search and didn't find anything that even came close to this question but; how do you decide how to quilt your tops? This is a subject that perplexes me. I don't think i've ever seen anything that says how you know/decide what kind of design to use to quilt your tops. Seems I don't recall any books that address this subject either. I'm sure there must be some out there, but don't recall any. So many people make such beautiful designs on their tops and it is as if the design fits to a tee, but when I try to decide I feel lost. Since the last quilt top I actually quilted was a stich the ditch, it was an easy decision. I have a number of tops that need done but am not sure what would look good. I'm also trying to do a lot of practicing with free motion but am still a ways away from actually trying a quilt top.
So how do you know what quilt design will go with your quilt top?
