    NOW, what to do for the quilting part?

    I just finished a class on the Stack and Whack and am not sure what to do for the quilting part. It is a gift for some very dear friends and want it to be special for them. The background is a beige/gold (even though it looks white in the pic) and I did a double red stop border and then the original material for a wider center border. I am open to any suggestion. am hoping the pic is attached.

    I really like the colors, but no idea on how to quilt it. Good job!

    I sure hope this post goes through 'cause I'd like to applaud your quilt! It is scrumptious! I'm thinking that echo quilting around each gorgeous star or perhaps a very small stipple to make the stars pop. Hoping another quilter has some better ideas.

    Beautiful quilt. The quilting in the print area won't show up too much, but you have some lovely lighter areas for designs if that's the way you want to go. I would probably google "stack and whack quilts" and look at the images to get ideas on quilting.

    Beautiful prints. I love your design, but don't know what to suggest for quilting.

    Absolutely beautiful! Do you plan to quilt it yourself? If not, we have some excellent LA quilters on this board-I have used Charismah, and if you check out the many, many quilts she has done and posted photos, you can see the work she does, or get ideas if you want to do it yourself. I do think you should use gold thread, though.
