    I wish I had seen this sooner. I did my first feathers just last night on a table runner. It turned out ok but now I see how they should be done.
    I have to admit I cringed when I saw your quilt on the driveway. Of course, I am thinking of my dirty driveway!
    Your quilt is gorgeous!

    I recently completed one (handquilted) that was 98x85 and did the simple outline stitch in each log and center....1/4 inch from each seam on all seams. It was very simple but in keeping with the barn raising design used. Loved it. It was for a fundraiser and raised $1050. Yea!

    Magnificent quilt, love the colours will be interesting to see how you decide to quilt it, I would keep it simple, the design has its own beauty.

    Since you have a quilt robot...I'd Choose a pretty design for the white areas...feathers or a meandering flowering vine...and then a motif for the center in a matching design. The blue areas are not going to show quilting as much...so maybe a wavy ribbon around the dark blue area. A ribbon effect is easy to achieve..do a meandering line, and go back over it and cross over the curve in the meandering line at the same place of each curve...try doodling one. I have one that I did in my software..added a bow I found online to each corner...worked up nicely. Even ditch stitching would work in the darker area...especially to seperate the white from the prints. Extra work, but it's for your mom!

I've tried to find other log cabin quilts for ideas but still nothing is catching my eye. I have a robotic system which I use most all the time.........in fact all the time as I had an 18 inches machine and just got a new 26" Innova this past Tuesday. I still have lots of practice to do but that's all the fun of a new toy. I'll be getting the robotics installed on her in December so I won't be starting the log cabin till the new year. Any suggestions would be helpful. Here's a photo of it. Sorry if the photo is so large. Haven't posted much here to know how to do it correctly. It was so large I had to lay it on the driveway to photograph it back when I lived in Florida. I'm now in Iowa.

    Thanks,

    Your quilt is awesome. As for the quilting I like what crazythread suggested. Have to admit I'm not into lots of heavy quilting but it would seem a shame to me to detract from your beautiful quilt

    But if you'd like to use a more traditional design, the Baptist Fan was commonly used on these quilts over 125 years ago.

    Shoot, wish the photo was larger.
    I too like the Baptist Fan the curve with all the straights. But I like the feathers also.
