Love the quilt but, sorry, but I don't like the quilting. FLWright was all about the linear. I would have used a derivation of the upper pattern.

I really like it. I agree that some curvy quilting looks good with all those straight lines. Someone said a little wider or two rows of cables to fill the space and I think that would be good, too.

I'm glad you decided you were not happy with them. I think a more linear approach is needed on the quilting, something a little more modern. I am guessing you posted already knowing what you should do. Sometimes for an unpleasant task such as taking out beautiful stitches such as yours we just need a little push from others to validate our own thoughts. Pinterest probably has this pattern with many different types of quilting for you to review. Can't wait to see your next version!

I love it.....it gives it just the right amount of quilting and not take away the beauty of your top.

I like a minimum of quilting and this seems to work....too much quilting takes away from the lovely design...IMHO

I like it........and would also add stitch in the ditch on all the seams.....would be the finishing touch. Also, would make it so there wasn't so much space between the quilting -- which can lead to problems when it's washed.

I agree whole heartedly! In my honest opinion!
