    Your quilt is absolutely stunning, I would do a lot of SID quilting, you wouldn't want to distract from the quilt top. You could sneak in some celtic designs in borders and such. Please post a pic when you're all done, would love to see it. Thanks for posting, and P.S. if your quilt ever needs a home, it would have a really good home at my house !!! lol Thanks for posting.

    Beautiful quilt! I wouldn't even dare make a suggestion on how to quilt that beauty. I'm sure you will figure it out, and it will be even more wonderful!

    Boy do I wish I could get my hands on this one! I've been sitting here studying it. I think your idea of SID is correct for the colored area. Then you have all that black. You have black diamonds on either side of the main large ones. I would quilt that celtic knot in those, in black. The sashings, I see, with a simple rope winding all the way through. I think I would also do the rope all the way around in the borders. Then you have the diamond centers to the braids themselves. I think I would just do curved lines around the interior. (we longarmers call them pumpkin seeds or orange peel) Then you have around your colored celtic knots. I think a tight stipple would set them off nicely. I'd do a little looser stipple in the triangles on either end of the braids.
    Can't wait to see what you do with this beauty!

    That is beautiful and I don't know enough about quilting to suggest to you except I agree with not to busy so it doesn't take away from the quilt it's self

    Fantastic! I agree that the quilt can, very easily, stand alone. SID is what I would do.
    Enjoying life to the fullest is learning to quilt and riding my motorcycle.
