Default For Hubby, need quilting suggestions

For hubby. I'd love suggestions on how to quilt it on the long arm. This is "Allegiance" from Fons and Porter.

Oh how pretty! I am in love with your stars. Hubby is going to love this one. Since you are taking it to be LA talk with the LA'er for her/his thought on what will work best with this quilt. It deserves something that will make these stars pop!

Great quilt top and congratulations on loading your picture! I might SITD the stars and repeat that star outline in the strip block or if you have a star pantograph, that would look nice too.

That's awesome!

Is it just me, or did anyone else see the illusion of the bars as the wood flooring?

I'm another one who really struggles with the quilting design, but the meander with odd drawn stars works well with things like this and what I ended up doing on my star based quilt. Don't think I have any pictures showing the quilting so much but it's my quilt for July so I think I'll pull it out of the closet.

Whew! back in time to edit (hope)

Both quilts are beautiful. R,W &B are my most favorite colors.

Beautiful quilt and I love R,W & B quilts. I don't have any ideas for quilting design. I just take my tops to LA quilter and she always knows what would look good. Maybe your LA quilter will make some suggestion for you.

I'll be quilting this on my long arm, myself.
