    ...I don't think it would matter what you did for the quilting; it is beautiful. :lol: I'm sure that's not what you wanted to hear... but great job!

    --i just love hand quilting. Especially on something as beautiful as your quilt. I pd one hundred doillars to rent time on a quilting machine for a baby quit I keep that quilt to remind me. - have stippled a few small quilts but by the time you get the motionbright its over. Sooooooo. good luck whatever you decide.

    You can also just do a straight line grid, which is very forgiving.

    My daughter does a meandering effect with a few loops every so often looks great on almost and quilt. The loops are kinda like long hand e's.

    With some much prominent geometry, try making your meandering a little loopy or swirls, maybe a few small flowers.

    I can not even express what this feedback means to me!! Thank you so much. The making of the 3D pinwheel you can find if you search: 3D pinwheel, how many layers into one seam. Sorry I dont know how to make a link.....

    I am really working my but off on this one and the picture shows how far I got today.
    As suggested I will try the swirl with the according colors on each pinwheel, sorry dont know anymore who recommended that and on the pyramid border I will try what Katier showed me on HST.

    thanks so much Katier

    I just try to fill in with accuracy where I lack from talent :oops: Some kind of swiss precision.
    Did so much of stiching and undoing today knowing that only quilters can tell the difference but I only do want your approval

    First off this is a gorgeous quilt you have done a marvelous job of piecing it, and it is going to be very loved.

    I would first stitch in the ditch around all the blocks, then quilt (meander around all the back ground(things you don't want to stick out) kind of densely. Like the bg of the fairies, and in the pin wheels do one color meandered, leave the other unquilted. The border pinwheels leave unquilted and meander in the back ground. Maybe a leaf vine in the thin solid borders, or just leave them outlined.

    Whatever you do it will be beautiful. Enjoy the process.

    Don't forget to label it.

    Lucinda

    That is a lucky baby who gets that quilt. You did a great job, it is beautiful. Love it! You could do QID in the center and squigleys on the rest. Any way you do it will be fine.

    If I would do FMQ do I have to make a different pattern on the borders or does all over pattern means it is made all over? What (easy) pattern would you make on it?
    Having not much experience with FMQ should I better go with QID?
    Any other ideas would be greatly appreciated

    Hi, love the quilt. so cheerful. especially the border ! this is a great quilt for SID.even easier is the serpentine stitch over the
    seams. fast, cute for a kid. not too wide. you will find that FM all over takes much more time than doing the straight seams. with all the piecing, there are so many seams you could choose, just so you quilt according to the batting suggestions of width between lines. for kids quilts, I always make sure I am no more than 4 inches apart, but just go with your block size. that can change all over the quilt. use your walking foot. smitty
