    Lightbulb How should I quilt this?...all ideas appreciated

    I am making this quilt for a wedding gift and need ideas for quilting it on a domestic sewing machine. I know how to do some free motion quilting ...need to keep it simple since it needs to be done in less than a month. If you have seen this same quilt finished elsewhere, please direct me to view it. Thanks so much.

    ​I think the first thing I would do would be SITD between the the star centers. That would stabilize the whole quilt with a large grid pattern. I would then do feathered wreaths in each of the large white squares. The top looks beautiful!

    I also agree... some curved feathers would look great

    I agree 100% with tartan, that is the way to go. If you don't feel comfortable enough to do feather wreaths a "pumpkin seed" flower would also look nice in those squares. It is easy to quilt it is 4 arcs and the bow of all the arcs meet in the middle. So an arc would take up one half of the square. When they are all quilted it forms 4 pumpkin seeds that meet in the middle.

    What a pretty quilt you have made!

    As suggested, SITD around the stars for your first step.
    Then ... Being that it's a wedding gift ... in the white space, how about a heart?
    Outline it and leave as is, or do echo quilting ... or outline and stipple outside the star.
