Default looking for honest opinions!

i thought i would just quilt this with simple nested squares, but then the cable idea occurred.

i REALLY don't know if it's awesome or terrible.

I think it looks good. But I do understand your struggle with wanting to get the right quilting. I have felt like I have ruined a quilt by how I quilted it.

You have to be happy with it... but I do like it. How are you going to quilt the rest?

It looks super nice to me. I would have put double rows of the cables in each section to add more interest.

The rest will have very minimal sid. It's so linear there's nothing else to do without destroying the lines.

Thank you so much!

It is not bad but it would have been better if it could be a little wider to fill the space. Just my honest opinion.

I like some curvy quilting on geometric piecing. But it does seems like it needs a little more quilting to fill in the space between the outer edges of the cables and the black lines. What about another couple of curvy lines to echo the cable curves? Or some narrow straight lines of matchstick quilting on either side of the narrow black sashing lines? I really like this quilt!!

To me cables don't really go with FLW, but you did a nice job on them.
