    How to quilt this??

    I made a top but now it's finished and I have absolutely no idea how to quilt this. The pictures are not the best but you get the idea of how the top looks like. I would love to have some advice!

    A balanced quilter is one with a project on each finger
    Eat, quilt, sleep, repeat

    I'm not very creative when it comes to choosing quilting designs. I would probably do an all over or use a pantograph. Someone will have a better idea. Although the LA quilter at the LQS says some quilt just look better with an all over design.

    I was thinking an all over design, too. How about Baptist Fan?

    That's a lovely quilt. I see 3 different "blocks" for your custom quilting. I'd doing something that followed the "arrow" shapes (the light areas that point to the corners). Maybe adapt something from a table runner or a diamond pattern (I have a book of quilting designs that I use for inspiration, and that's often what I do - look for a similar shape and go from there). Then the crosses - I might even go with straight line quilting in the ditch on those, or maybe a cross-hatch. And the "circles" - dark center, light, dark rows. I see something loopy that radiates out from the center of those blocks.

    Having said all that - I have a really hard time picking quilting designs. But I'm sure something will come to you, and the board members are really good at helping.

    I'd do large circles of feathers in the area that looks like a big circle (centered in the 2nd pic), and something smaller in the squares where the corners of your blocks meet. Does that make sense?

    I would quilt grids in the light fabric areas and do feathers in the darker fabric areas.
