    I finished making this quilt top awhile ago and now want to get to the quilting part...I just need some ideas on how to quilt it. What designs would you use?

    Wow! I have to agree! That top is very pretty! I think it would look nice with an allover floral design!

    I'd be tempted to quilt a different design in each colour block; do the continuous curves in the black squares; and in the white sashing, some sort of feather or fern design.

    For the colour blocks, you can get lots of ideas from Leah Day's blog http://freemotionquilting.blogspot.com/.

    What a gorgeous quilt! Have fun quilting :)

    Very beautiful, would be quilting on the outer parts of the colored triangles. Hope you show the finishing.
