    quilting suggestions for 15-inch blocks?

    Happy May Day!

    I would love to have you suggest some quilting ideas for this 12-block quilt. Each block is 15 inches. I had won a fat quarter bundle of the Bittersweet line at our LQS and came across this simple 9-patch BOM which happened to use the Bittersweet material. I thought about doing an all-over meander but was wondering if there were other ideas to do for each block. Doesn't have to be anything fancy. I recall someone saying that "you really don't have to quilt anything too fancy if you're giving it to a non-quilter since they probably wouldn't have the same appreciation of fancy quilting like a quilter would" which is the case here. I've never done any grid quilting on a large quilt and wonder if that would be OK for this one. Any suggestions are welcome!

    I saw a quilt one time that had the quilting just echo the seams. I thought it looked wonderful. I must say I love the colors of this quilt of yours. I hope the person who gets it, appreciates the work you did. I love it.

    Great quilt top! The blocks kind of read like a Nine Patch. I wonder how an Orange Peel design using the seams would look?

    Awesome border! An overall meandering with maybe circles in the border?
