    Need advice PLEASE

    I love this quilt top i made. Love it so much I'm keeping it for myself.( most I give away)
    Here's my problem How should it be quilted. Did I mess up by adding the flowers and buttons before quilting it?
    Its not real big and was hoping to send it to someone to quilt when I saved enough $$ since my quilting sucks. LOL!!

    My advice isn't worth much but I give it anyway. LOL I don't know how I would quilt the blocks but the flowers are fine. Charisma quilted one for me that I had appliqued flowers around 2 corners like you did. I didn't have as many flowers and they were a little bit larger than yours but she outlined them and quilted in the border around them and it was beautiful. She does such good work and know exactly how to quilt each pattern. I love her work.

    A good longarmer could do this but will have to pay attention and stay away from the embellishments. If you want to do it yourself you could stitch straight lines.

    A good machine quilter can do gorgeous work around your applique' work and teh buttons... I did a cute quilt for my great nephew and put a prairie point edging between the appliqued little blocks of animals and the border and she did beautiful work quilting it - never touched the prairie points and yet got the border quilted too - very nice.. so it can be done if you hire a good quilter to do it for you.

    What a great job. No help on quilting. But I agree this is one you should keep your self.
