    ​Gorgeous quilt top! SITD would be fine if that is what you are confident doing. You could price out how much a long armer would charge to custom quilt it.

    I can't stop looking at this quilt. Everything about it is stunning. Trying to get my courage up to do this pattern. One of my main problems is what color to use and the placement of those colors. Love the celtic knot motif. This would be a great quilt for my sister. She does Celtic dance and loves anything Celtic.

    Beautiful quilt! Look on Googlel, click images and type in Celtic quilting stencils to get some ideas. There are some simple ones that you can custom/modify to your quilt by tracing on paper and quilting over it on your quilt. Love to see what you decide to do and please post your finished quilt

But would love advice from experienced quilters.

    Your decision to stitch in the ditch is a wise one. All you need is right there!
    Thank you for sharing this amazing work of yours, Carolyn.

    Beautiful quilt no doubt! No matter how you decide to quilt it, it can only make it more beautiful. Can't wait to see if once it is completed.
    Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most...

    I would personally do stitch-in-the-ditch so as not to take away from the pattern itself. Can you tell me what pattern you used?
