    Hi Ania,
    That is agreat looking quilt the colors are beautiful. I would do stich in the ditch and then put the feather wreath in the center of the large blocks and in the side triangles. It is a very busy quilt but does need some ornate quilting in it not just stich in the ditch. You did a great job!!!
    What a beautiful quilt top.

    That is a BEAUTIFUL quilt!!! One of the guilds I belong to just completed one using the same pattern (I think it is called the Garden Path) for our raffle quilt. It was kind of a pain in the neck to do as a collective project, and we wound up undoing and re-doing many of the blocks, due to the differences of sewers (experience level, mostly). It did turn out wonderfully in the end, though.... I will try to get a picture to post for you all here.

    In the mean time, keep up the GREAT work, and please do post a picture of your whole top! :lol: :wink: :lol: :thumbup: :thumbup:

    I bought this magazine when I was in the US....
    Its call Garden Twist Quilts
    from In The Beginning fabrics

    They also have a web site: www.inthebeginningfabrics.com

    It was a bit difficult in the beginning (he he)....But once you get used to the pattern it goes smothly....I ripped only one square....(Its a full full size....may be more)...

    They do recommend the stitch in the ditch.....but I am sure I have to do something with the big blocks too.....How to do it without pushing this flowers back again..This is the problem I am facing now......

    I need all your help.....

    I have a friend who just completed a lattice & large flowered top very similar to yours. She is not going to stitch in the ditch as recommended. Instead she is going to hand quilt a simple, large, circular flower motif in each flower square.

    Thanks again...I knew you will all be a great help with this project...
    I am really scary....Its really big...
    I admire those of you who makes hand quilting....I am afraid of it too...Much, too much time...I will have to use the machine....
    Both of you suggesting actually to quilt something in the center of each big square.....I believe I will do it....(even so I am afraid the flowers will loose their affect of "getting out" from the squares....
