    I am working on a quilt for a wedding shower this coming Saturday. I have it ready to quilt but not sure what type of designs to do on it. Please give me your advice on what I should do.
    Thanks

    Feathers would be a beautiful addition to your gorgeous quilt!

    I have this pattern in my "to do" list so have never quilted it - will watch this string to see what is suggested. Hope mine comes out as beautiful as yours!

    would feathers be too much if I did them in each color?

    The nice thing is that you have large areas to work in and showcase the quilting. I would recommend finding a design that works in the widths of the rows and runs continually. Then I would follow that design along the row as if it ran under the pieces that crosses, continuing the layered effect of the pattern.

    I think feathers would be beautiful. Would you share the name of the pattern?

    Labyrinth. I bought the kit from Keepsake Quilting. It was very easy to go together. I just have the hardest time deciding what to quilt.

    Thanks for info. It is a beautiful gift. Add: I just looked up the pattern and it's from another Texan! Her name is Debbie Maddy and I love the patterns.

    I don't think there's such a thing as too much feathering! LOL Check out some of Charismah's work...she does some beautiful things with feathers. There was a log cabin that she did that was laid out in similar fashion to your pattern.

    or even this, feathers alternating with leafy vine

    No suggestions except to second feathers. But great quilt you've got started!

    I LOVE that pattern! Gotta make one!!! Yours is beautiful, and sorry, I don't do any of the fancy quilting, so I can't be much help with that.

    I just finshed this very pattern and had leaves quilted all over because my fabrics looked like fall. I think the feathers would be a good choice.
