    This is the finished top for my son's quilt. He went with me to the LQS and he picked out a moss green for the back of it. But here is the question----since this is so busy would it be better to just stitch in the ditch as opposed to having it quilted?

    you could do some simple diagonal stitches through the squares.that would give it enough movement and be simple enough for a male's taste. great quilt.

    It is a beautiful quilt and I don't see any reason why you shouldn't stitch in the ditch. I really like stitch in the ditch myself.

    It is definitely personal preference, but an all over quilt pattern would make those lovely patterns pop. IMHO.

    What I would do with this quilt is SitD, then a bit of ornimental quilting in the gold blocks and border. I used to quilt everything heavily, but I am more laid back these days.

    I think it does need a little more than a stitch in a ditch.

    I think stitch in the ditch. That is how I do all of my quilts. Heavier quilting would detract from the beautiful florals in this quilt. IMO

    This was my first thought as well. I love diagonal quilting.
