    if you are not confident with free motion, then I would quilt in ditch. free motion takes practice and confidence to be satisfactory to you and since this is a special quilt, my suggestion is not practice your free motion on it. I don't believe those who receive it would apprecviate it any more.

    you can do a puzzle design all over or meandering they both are good because if you lose your place u just keep going and it doesn't show good for new to fmq just play music and dance with your hands

    the point is have fun

    Wonderful job on the quilt. I would just do a large stippling all over the quilt. Practice first!!! Your quilt is gorgeous, so whatever you do, it is going to look great.

    OMG I can't believe you are a beginner. Your quilt is beautiful. I'm more of a hand quilter so I'll leave the ideas on machine quilting to the gals who know much more than I do about it. I just wanted to compliment you on your work.

    Some lucky baby! An all over pattern will look good and won't interfere with your design. I would not stipple or other really small quilting as it might make the quilt a bit stiff; you want to keep it soft. Lovely quilt.

    For the FMQ or meandering, when I do it, I start at the top left and work to the far right dropping down to the next row so to speak, not really stopping but carrying it on. That goes from the right working to the left. That drops down to the 3rd row, working back to the right. Just think of the shape of jigsaw puzzle pieces, not really showing where you start or stop. I hope this helps and is clear. I'm not real good at explaining in words.
    This is pretty much how I do mine, only difference is that I kinda do my "rows" or "areas", as someone else put it in arcs kinda like the rainbow and just work each new "row" or "area" into the previous one so you can't really tell one from the other. "Blending" I find to be a good description. Hope this helps.

    thank you so much for your ideas, sugestions and also for your concerns. I just finished the SID and will now practice for the FMQ.
    Watch out for guardian angels/pinwheel quilt in the picture sections in about two or three weeks.....hopefully

    If you have never attempted FMQ'ing before but still want to try it I would first suggest that you take any kind of scrap fabric and make a few sandwiched squares and practice on those until you get to where you are happy with the results. Then you can switch over to the quilt and go at it.
    I would do in the ditch on the large center with the pin wheels and for first timer FMQ'er I would use a merandering stitch. The best way to describe it is it kind of looks like brain coral, curving lines that run back and forth.

    After hours of FMQ on patches (running out of left over batting and cheap fabric) I just meandered over the fabric with the clouds.............
    I made a mistake with the HST including that particular fabric and ended up having the background of the 3D pinwheel on the bias so I had to somehow quilt it down.
    Other than that ever single ditch is quilted.

    I am a bit disappointed any how. I think the quilting brings a quilt to live and it was hard to go for a very simple live. But still better than a misrable one.

    thanks so much again

    granny_59 My grandmother whom made alot of quilts used to say a quilt isn't a quilt unless there is at least one mistake. The ladies she quilted with always turned something around or made a mistake in the quilting.
    Your quilt is beautiful!!!!
