This is a tablerunner that I have just finished piecing. Now I am ready to machine quilt and I am a relative newby and am not very good at free motion quilting yet. I am comfortable doing boxes within the squares and then echoing the flying geese with a free motion stitch but was wondering if you thought that would look too "boring"? The back is white - would you suggest a pastel multi-color thread or white thread? As I said, I'm not very experienced so my work is NOT beautiful...(yet)! I would appreciate some suggestions! Thanks.
