    how to quilt Joseph's Coat quilt

    just finished hand piecing Joseph's Coat pattern quilt that my friend found in her MIL box. As much as I would love to hand quilt it, I do not think that I want to do that at this stage, mainly not enough time and I will be giving it back to my friend who might give it away to her husbands kids.

    If I want to machine quilt it, should I meander or should I outline the pattern? I have new Juki that might allow me to quilt free motion.

    any advice would be appreciated

    I would just outline quilt each of the pieces - coming in a smidge on each seam. That is beautiful and scrappy looking!!

    Beautiful quilt!! I would either STID or echo in the shapes -- it really does not need much fancy quilting IMHO.

    Quilting Joseph Coat

    Lovely quilt, I am not a excellent machine quilter so I would stitch a lot of figure 8 lopes around the petals, stitching in the ditch of all the pieces. Please share pictures of the completed, I would enjoy see them.
