    I just finished doing my first OBW. Have it sandwiched and ready to be quilted. My problem is, what do you guys think I should do for the quilting? I am thinking of a stippling stitch and then maybe some feathers on the borders. But wanted some other opinions before I decided. Thanks in advance.

    It is amazing how you got it pink on one side and blue on the other. It is beautiful.

    I love your OBW! It is wonderful and cheery.

    I have no suggestions as to how to quilt it, but I'll be watching this thread, as I am hoping to start my first OBW after the holidays.

    I would do a FMQ leaf design in the borders instead of feathers. I'd mimic the leaf design used in the fabric. An overall meander or stipple would work. If you could find a variegated thread to match-that would be awesome.

    I just have a such a hard time on decided on the quilting. I never have a problem on deciding fabrics, patterns. Just when it comes to the quilting, I have this mental block.

    I really enjoyed doing this OBW. It was really quite easy. Went together really fast and I love the way it turned out. I have a bright yellow for the back. Can you tell I love bright colors. :wink:
