    I am fairly new to quilting. I have made a bargello quilt top and I am quite pleased with it. My dilema is how do I quilt it. I am still trying to learn freemotion quilting but not very good at it yet. I don't want to ruin quilt top can anyone please help me out with this. Thank you in advance.

    i prefer quilts with illusions to have more simple quilting designs so that it doesn't over power the illusion and cause the eye to focus on the quilting instead of the piecing illusion.

    i've seen many LA ruin a great illusion by not following the illusion pattern.

    here's a link to a bargello on the board that was quilting perfectly to maintain the integrity of the illusion

    if you google bargello and study the quilting designs you might get some ideas that you would be able to do on your quilt.
