I just got a new quilting machine and I getting ready to quilt an irish chain. My first! I don't know what to quilt on it. I just don't know what would look good. It is for my son to take to college. So it can't be to girly.
Any Idea????

I think you should post a picture so they can give you ideas on quilting it. Other than that stitch in the ditch who knows. Pictures always help.

Find your comfort zone. Do what you like doing as far as quilting, just don't use pink thread :wink:

Jac, I really like that but I'm not sure I can do that. It is beautiful.
Can you tell me how to do it?
Thanks

Ruth, I like stippling but I have done so many like that I wanted to try something different if it wasn't to hard.

Thanks, Loretta.
I have already made the quilt it is in blue and white. I will post a picture when I can get my camera away from my daughter.
