    This is my second quilt I have made and I need some suggestions as to what pattern to use in the quilting of this top.

    Giant circle feather over each of the blocks? Since they're so angular, the roundness of the feathers might be a nice contrast.

    This was my bargain top. I got the entire kit at the thrift store for less than $4 in Feb. It was packaged in about 3 different bags with the pattern included. All I had to add was the backing and batting.

    That is a very handsome quilt you have there. Myself, I would stitch in the ditch as much as possible. Then cross-hatch a grid between the ditches. No artsy-fartsey flowers or feathers. They just don't belong on something that masculine. My handsome, masculine man-friend would really appreciate that quilt. ;)
