    How would you quilt this?

    My new DIL asked me to use the napkins and table toppers from her wedding reception in a first anniversary quilt. Using the Chopsticks pattern I made this quilt top. Now.....how should I quilt it? I will be using my dsm and limited skill! Lol! So far I am pretty good at loops, stippling, and using my walking foot. Suggestions? Each triangle measures about ten inches.

    This was posted last month...I love how it's quilted. You can also see others in a search on Google Images.

    I would continue with the skills you already have. Use your walking foot to stitch in the ditch around the large print pieced triangles. Then do loops in the unpieced print triangles, and stipple the small white ones (or vice versa!)

    Using your 3 preferred quilting motifs, I sketched a couple of ideas for you. If you feel like trying something different, the stylized flower would be cute too.

    Whatever you decide, it's such a pretty quilt! And I love the idea of using the linens from the wedding - that will make it even more special.

    Love the two suggestions so far! Seeing the awesome quilting on a previous post paired with a simplified version for my skills so helpful. Thanks!

    Walking foot, stitch straight lines 1/4 in from all seams. Letting them cross at intersections. I've seen it quilted like that and it looks great!

    No help on the quilting, but wanted to say you did a great job on the top. I know she will love it and what a way to up-cycle.

    This is exactly what I decided to do. It's great to get a second opinion,though! So far I've only done the top row. Slow but steady!!!
