    I don't have any suggestions but wanted to say that your quilt is beautiful. Wonderful job and use of colors.

    Will you be machine quilting this top? If so I would recommend a very easy and elegant way to quilt this top. I would serpentine all the seams, on each side of each seam. Much faster than SID and it will give a lacy look to the finished top. It can be stitched continuously with very few stops and starts. Work out you quilting path before you start and you will be able to stitch all the way across the quilt and fill in each block until you need to change bobbins. This is a quilt that I would love to quilt!

    As for the borders, they look to be made with 2 inch strips, so I would do the same with them. Just serpentine (or zig zag) on each side of each seam.

    I agree. I would do stitch in the ditch diagonally along the sides of the diamonds.

    It's a very pretty quilt. Would you consider echo stitching the white squares around the edge and then adding the diagonals through the squares and stitch in the ditch with the coloured squares? Otherwise, a small wreath in each of the white squares and stitch in the ditch with the coloured squares? I wish you all the best and look forward to seeing the completed quilt. Thank you for sharing.

    Just wanted to say what a lovely quilt top. Colours and pattern are great.
    Home is where the heart is, and a few scrappy quilts.

    You ALL have been so helpful and encouraging....I forgot to mention this is for a 3yr old little boy, but, I also have a bigger one for his Daddy....a Daddy and Me quilt. I am still thinking - actually a bit intimidated to start. LOL Just got back from a long vacation.
