    I've just made a top using pattern BQ from Maple Island Quilts with all aboriginal fabrics. I need suggestions for appropriate quilting design/designs to use on the quilt. I don't do long-arm quilting myself, but would prefer to describe something that enhances the spirit of the different fabrics.(I don't think feather wreaths are going to get it! ;)
    Thanks ever so much - talk about being lost in the bush!

    I usually reflect images in the fabric with the quilting.

    If you're hunting through Google Image, try putting words like "stencil" or "embroidery" into the search string.
