    How Would You Quilt The Dark Gray Sections Of This Quilt?

    I posted this picture before under the thread, Give A Mouse A Cookie? How About, Give A 7 Year Old Your Design Board! I've quilted the mini stars and spiderwebs with SID. I'm not sure how to quilt the dark gray section, though. I don't know how to quilt it so that it doesn't take away from the mini stars and the center spiderweb panel. I plan to do some FMQ in the outer purple borders, though I haven't decided which pattern to use yet.

    Sorry I can't give you any advice on how to quilt the grey area but wanted to say I love your quilt.

    I would put small spiderwebs around the stars and once in a while a spider.

    I think I would do diagonal lines -- 1/2 to 1" apart depending on the size of the area. It would not take away from the spectactular design and might add a different texture

    I would do pebbles. They are subtle but also add to the texture of the quilt.

    I love that pattern! I think I would keep with straight lines in the grey areas.

    Beautiful. I would have to agree with Mim and Dunster, using straight lines. However I would probably take it one step further and do diagonal cross-hatching. Your quilt is beautiful and I'm sure whatever you decide on the quilting, it will only enhance it.
    Quilting is my PASSION not my pass time.

    I agree with adding something circular....either the pebbles or spiderwebs. Well done!
