    Can you just "stitch in the ditch"?

    you can make it really simple and do "stitch in the ditch" sewing along certain line in the quilt ,maybe all the dark purple lines,a simple straight stitch,it can be as simple or as complicated as you want

    I think it would look good with a loose, swirly freemotion quilting - curves to contrast the straight lines of the piecing.

    I'm with Cathe...I think swirly free motion would be pretty. Is there anything that she aboslutely loves, like flowers, lighthouses, etc. or something that you could get a template for and quilt that design?

    Beautiful quilt!! I agree with curvy/swirl designs, and I'd do it on the diagonal (with the color scheme).

    A swirling design is so right for this rail fence quilt... A year ago I made one of those and it was a swirling design the quilting lady suggested for it... and did it... looks lovely.... you have done a good job... great looking quilt.

    What a beautiful quilt!! I'm like the others, I think the swirl would be a complement to the quilting! You've done a beautiful job!
