    I agree, not more leaves, but bigger ones. Will have to experiment with the vein as I want to do it continuously. Will try both ways! Thanks for the input!

    Oh, how I love that quilt! Black and white, my favorite. I'm sure you'll figure out the perfect quilting design. Good luck.

    What I would do is just outline the pattern that is already of the material.

    This is beautiful, don't over quilt it, I think that would spoil it's beauty. Good job.

    What a gorgeous quilt! I love the modern fabric with traditional blocks. There are several good suggestions here, I can't wait to see which way you take this. Please show us when you're finished!

    Well, the good thing about free motion, is that you DON'T have to turn it and turn it. Just move it the direction you need it to go. You could do a big flower in the big blocks and a soft line diagonally though the other blocks, which could also be free motion. Make it purposely not straight, and then it looks like a design decision rather than a straight line gone off. Love the quilt! Good luck!

    Kitsie,
    I definitely like the leaves on the outside curve. Looks more natural as in nature.

    Charismah is a fmq artist - creative, talented and excellent. She has a web site too.

I love studying Charismah's work to see what designs I can make a stab at. I would say duplicate but no way am I ever going to be that good.

    Beautiful quilt-I would probably just handquilt around the flowers themselves & echo the flower pattern in the SB blocks! Love your quilt!

    Wow!!!! and wow some more..that is dramatically drop dead gorgeous..what a palette for an longarm quilter. I'd love to get my hands on it to quilt..What a great job you did on it. Don't underrate your ability to quilt it, take your time, maybe pick up a stencil or make your own, plan it out carefully and I bet you can make it shine. Way to go!!!!

    I just read all 5 pages hoping someone had asked the name of your pattern. Your quilt is absolutely wonderful and I'd love to try one similar but not in black and white. Would you mind sharing the name of the pattern if you didn't create it yourself? And if you did, it's lovely and I'd love to know what you call it.

    I was also wondering the name of the pattern as well. I love the simple color scheme and fabric selections. I FMQ and I sometimes have a hard time deciding on just the right quilt design. I think a small flowering vine similar to the design on your fabric would be great in the larger blocks and stitching around the block design in the star blocks would look great.
