Default Paper pieced quilt

I have finished a paper pieced quilt. Any suggestions for a quilting pattern? There are so many pieces on each block I don't think anything too complicated would work.

Sorry, but my crystal ball must be out of commission because of the heat wave!
........ if you'd like suggestions, it's always best to show us a photo of your quilt.

Without having a clue as to what PP you are working with,
I am sure that I am no different than many of the others, with no clue as to what to suggest!

There is a way to attach photos - maybe someone can post the "how to" for you - or connect you to the link.

I know they can't be "too big" - meaning too many pixels or something like that -

Or you could post a link to the pattern you used.?

I will not say what my crystal ball is telling me but will try and thank you for your kind and courteous response.

I do a lot of paper piecing and my choice for quilting really depends on the density of the paper piecing, the pattern and the fabric. A picture of your quilt would be very helpful. In the help center there are several directions on adding pictures depending on your computer's operating system

Since I am not the best fmq'r, I'd probably go for an edge to edge design with swirls and curves in a thread that blends in the best. Most pp'ing is very linear, so curves of your choice can be a generalized design that works.

...... And I hope that you will share a photo,
so that you can get some suggestions as to how you might quilt it.

Depending on how large your blocks are, a good place to start would be to SITD between the blocks. Once that is done, maybe you can stitch in a few of the bigger pp pieces to meet the batting quilting requirements?

Default Voila!!!

Hope the pic is here. Too funny. Well now I know how to do it on the MAC! Its probably too small now. My daughter has the quilt. These are a few leftover blocks. Each one is different so you can see my dilemma.
