    I need your advice and help

    Hello everyone!
    I need your advice and help.
    On Monday we bought a new dressoir to place next to the front door of our House. The top is lacquered wood so it should be a way for protection.
    I designed one runner with my EQ7 and finished sewing last night. We show some photos.
    The top measures 8.25" x 29,25" and each block 6" x 6".
    Today I have to attend a photography course, but tomorrow I want to do the quilting.
    Intended to make only a stitching in the ditch, only around the blocks, but it occurred to me that someone could give me some simple idea in this regard. Remember that I only did straight quilting.
    I would appreciate your help and thank you very much for looking!
    A large and strong hug!

    I love it....i know you say only straight stitching - i am mostly the same with my quilts -- but.....i think a stitch in the ditch along the "curved" edges, continuing around the center square, would not be too difficult if you went slowly.... I have stitched around many curved pieces this way and it works as long as i go slowly. With or without this -
    Es muy muy bonita !!!!
    Of all the things i've lost, i miss my mind the most.

    Nice. You can do curly quilting on it. Something like this pic. It's a little different in the block shape, but you should get the idea.

    I was going to suggest this as well, with echo quilting between the these two lines, sort of like sun rays with a curve.

    I think SITD would be my choice. The pattern is intricate and I wouldn't want the quilting to distract from the pattern. It will be beautiful whatever you decide!

    I'd go with circles myself, it would be complimentary to the shapes but still interesting to the eye and bit dramatic in a bold thread. Perhaps a spiral circle design. Can't wait to see what you come up with!!!
