    Need advice on how to quilt this sno ball quilt

    Hi, I need some advice on how I should quilt this sno ball quilt that I made for my 23 yr old grand daughter. I was thinking of outlining the inner part of the block or "trying" to do some free motion quilting in the center of the blocks. Should I also quilt on the sashing or cornerstones? How has anyone else done theirs? Thanks for any advice! Nancy

    Personally. I would quilt the sashing and leave the blocks plain unless the batting needed more, in which case I would do something simple in the blocks and something like a vine and leaf on the sashing.

    I do a meandering or large stipple. I love the look and love doing it

    Someone with more ideas will be along later.
    Beautiful quilt.

    You could do SID on the sashing and a continuous line pattern in each center. It's very pretty.

    I like something in each block and then some sort of vine in the sashing. It's a great quilt. Nice fabrics.
