    Any ideas on how to quilt this?

    I have 2 quilt tops pieced together but I am not sure how to quilt these. Any ideas? I do machine quilting, but not FMQ. I have never FMQ and I really don't want to start on these.. so I will machine quilt but not FMQ. I have used the blue painters tape to mark straight lines as quilting sewing guides and I do like that.... so I am wondering it I can use that again for these. What do you guys think? Any thoughts? I am only attaching 1 picture, but the other quilt was pieced the same way just different tshirts.

    Great top with lots of straight lines so I think quilting along painter's tape would be perfect.

    Nice quilt! I would emphasize the diamonds by stitching in the ditch along each diamond T-shirt piece, from point to point along the small squares surrounding them, and along the outside of the large diamond pattern surrounding each T-shirt piece. You may have to so some quilting within each T-shirt diamond as well---maybe just stitch a plus sign within each one, corner to corner?
