    It looks like feathers would be great on this one if you are up to the task. If not, simple echo stitching and a diagonal grid might look really nice on this one too.

    love the quilt top
    it calls to me that it needs outlines around the big hear shapes and a stipple design of some sort in the white areas.

    Looking at the quilt (which is beautiful!) against your trellis shows what cross hatching would look like. I would echo quilt around the hearts to accent them and then do cross hatching in the white. Just my humble opinion plus the fact that I suck at feathers. Can't wait to see it finished.
    I pray for peace today and hope I don't have to tomorrow.

    You can't quilt too many feathers as far as I'm concerned!! I love them and there are so many variations you can do!!

    I agree. Beautiful quilt. Be sure to post a picture when you are finished.

    I was thinking the same as this!
