    Help, need quilting suggestions

    A friend brought me four articles of her mom's clothing after she died around Thanksgiving. They didn't have anything in common...this is what I have done with them. I added the black and white from my stash. I am thinking about using pink varigated thread and putting either feathers or flowers on the wide white strip on the left, leaves and vines on the other three white borders and probably just stippling on the rest of the quilt.

    What do you all suggest? I would like for this to look really good for my fried.

    You did an amazing job of turning clothing into a beautiful quilt. Your friend will treasure it forever! I agree with feathers leaves and vines, please show us a picture once it's quilted.

    The first quilting I would do is straight lines to connect the 2 angle sections through the white up to the black border around the center. I think it would look like sun shining through the window/quilt. Vines/feathers would look good or stippling on the rest. Wonderful job on the quilt top!
