    Quilting a tumbling block quilt- suggestions

    I'm working on a scrappy tumbling block quilt top. Any suggestions for quilting it? I saw some on the board that stitched around each block but not sure that is what I want. Would meandering detract from the blocks? Thanks for your help.

    I don't see why you couldn't do a meander on your blocks. Try Google Imaging it & see what they show.

    I would not meander. It wouldn't add anything to your design. This is a quilt I saw at Machine Quilting Expo West in Portland last year. It's a simple design, but every effective. Straight lines on the up sides of the blocks and curved lines on the tops.

    Oh Dunster, that is lovely. Well done.

    Thanks for the help. Think I'll do sometime similar to the quilt here.
