    Stack & Whack Wonky blocks - How to quilt?

    I was thinking of just SID so that the design will show on the back. But also thought something curvy would soften the sharp angles... but do I really want to soften it? After all, the wonky angles are the main focus of the pattern, right? Can you tell that I'm conflicted??? LOL Any and all thoughts are gratefully accepted. Thanks [the colors are not as bright as shown]

    I have never seen anything like this. I have just been looking at it for the longest time enjoying it. Sorry no help on the quilting.

    I'm not too familiar with quilting designs but I think a medium meander would do. Will not over power your hard work. Just a thought. Love the top and color combo.

    How about a couple rows of echoing each shape?

    I would also suggest echo shadowing

    I agree with the echo quilting. I think that would work nicely for this pattern. Cute!

    I would use a large, sharp pointed zigzag, all over meander to keep with the wonky edge design theme!
