    Need stencil source or ideas for Turning Twenty quilting

    I don't wan't to stipple or meander or SID or do diamonds and will be quilting it on My Janome (not long arm).

    I could figure out something for the 10" squares, but can't figure out what to do about the rectangles.

    it is all Neptune Batiks if that helps with the ideas.

    The biggest risk is the one not taken

    You could duplicate some of the patterns in the prints, like the starfish, shells or swirls.

    I would do "waves" across the quilt, which also happens to be very easy. See my post in this recent thread:
    Quilting suggestions for Yellow Brick Road

    Here is a website that shows kind of what I have in mind:

    This one adds bubbles (have to scroll down to the very bottom of the page):

    Here's one that is more evenly geometric:

    I use "quilting made easy" for blocks of all sizes. It feels like cheating, but works like any other pattern. you are just sewing through paper.

    I know that the Crafty Gemini does something she calls a sea urchin that she free motions and is a fairly simple design. Sorry I don't have the link saved. Hope you find something that inspires you.

    If you use a block design for the square, then I would consider a border stencil for the rectangle. These designs can be adjusted for length. However when using distinctive designs such as this I would set the block units in a structured way to give a uniform overall design.

    Have I read your post correctly that you want to quilt individual units and not all over?
