    Memories of Provence Quilt Top

    I have finally attached the borders to my Memories of Provence Quilt. I'm not crazy about the two borders as I LOVED the original floral border fabric. DH doesn't like flowers in decorating our bedroom, so I let him look at all the fabrics and let him choose. This was a block of the month pattern I did through a local quilt shop. I now have to practice my FMQ'ing skills as I'm going to try to do this myself on my Janome MC6600. I'm rather new at FMQ'ing so I'll be doing a lot of practice before I start this. Any ideas or hints for the quilting would be much appreciated!

    Your machine will be just great for this job! Make sure you practice on a quilt sample so the tension is just right. Try to sew slowly so you have good control. I would probably use quilt stencils here and there...free hand is harder. Don't forget your quilting gloves! Good luck and show us yor work please!
    Life may not be the party we planned for,but while we are here we should dance!

    This is a beautiful sampler. I have LA so my suggestions will probably be much more than you want to do but I tend to always SITD on samplers to help emphasize all the piecing. Then I usually come up with several FMQ motifs I can repeat throughout the quilt to bring continuity. If this quilt came to me I would probably do some sort of feathers in the white areas, changing them up a bit to fit the spaces and curved crosshatching in the setting triangles. I can't see enough of the borders to make a suggestion on the borders.
