The website mentioned has been disabled. Does anyone know of another website with good quilting motifs.
I am also a new quilter. I am confused as to how you know what to quilt. I have a scrappy quilt I am finishing and it has the blocks and a semi-star pattern. I did do ditch sewing in around the blocks, but how much is too much and when should you leave well enough alone. I have never done stippling--could try--but this is a gift. So, perhaps the best is to leave the block outlines on the backing and then just put ties in the center of the blocks, and leave it alone. Now it just has 15 squares on the backing.
If someone, has some general ideas as to what to quilt around I would be interested in hearing from you. Thanks.
