    Option 2 in the ditch. It's so pretty, I wouldn't want to take away from the design.

    I think I would use QITD in black so as not to detract from the lovely colors.

    Here's my options at this moment:

    1. Put it on the Little Gracie Frame and FMQ an all over meander with black thread.

    2. Pin it (or spray baste) and do straight line quilting (with black thread)in the black 1/4 inch from both sides of the seams and then 1/4 inch from the seams in the colored rectangles with matching thread. (I have a walking foot to use on this)

    3. Go to my air conditioned bedroom and procrastinate some more......


    I'm looking for something easy as I still have 9 days of school left and am limited on my evening time as the lawn and garden are calling me, too.
    This is a gorgeous stained glass pattern -- whatever you decide, I hope it doesn't take the eye away from that (i.e., I would stitch in the ditch, myself).

    I was thinking this same thing.

    How about meandering it with a multicolored thread? OOOOOPs didn't see the precvious comment. I agree with DebbieKT, it would be a show stopper.

    Option 2 as the black thread in the different colors would take away from the beauty.

    Your quilt is awesome. Love the pattern and the color selection.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    I vote for this idea and if you can do a vine or leafy thing instead of a meander, that would be perfect.

    I personally love meandering, and in black or varigated colors would be beautiful. The time constraint that you have would make me go with meandering. I'm not sure what a "Little Gracie Frame" is, but if it helps speed up the process, that's where I'd go. I suppose you could always do loop-di-loos in the black sashing using varigated thread. That would make the window panes pop. . .

    I'd do # 3 - but the meander would win the toss up between the other two options! Beautiful quilt top!
