    Need suggestions for quilting

    Here is my latest Reflection quilt. The top is finished, now need suggestions for how to quilt it. I can hand quilt, though it's not my favorite thing. Can't afford LAQ. Any suggestions for motifs/patterns on a domestic? I've done a fair amount of fmq. TIA. I'll be waiting for your expert ideas.

    beautiful! i would probably just do some squiggly lines radiating out from the center- have to really think about this one- but it sure is beautiful!

    Very pretty. I would do a diagonal cross hatch. I've done several small quilts like that and have become fairly fond of it.

    OOOOh, I can see some quilted lines in the same color up and down beside the designs. I wouldn't change the design by quilting in a different direction. It seems like if you quilted in the same directions it would puff it out. Just my opinionl It is so beautiful! Also, on the flower I would go beside the designs. I wouldn't quilt along every petal. I would pick out a few designs and quilt around them. Now I don't know how to do this! LOL

    How Van Gogh like! That is outstanding. I think the quilting should be simple - perhaps an all over large stipple.

    I agree. Maybe a star burst radiating from the center could work as well. Nothing that would compete with your flower. Beautiful quilt. Thanks for sharing.
    The bad news is - time flies.
    The good news is - you're the pilot!
