    Stack & Whack Wonky blocks - How to quilt?

    I was thinking of just SID so that the design will show on the back. But also thought something curvy would soften the sharp angles... but do I really want to soften it? After all, the wonky angles are the main focus of the pattern, right? Can you tell that I'm conflicted??? LOL Any and all thoughts are gratefully accepted. Thanks [the colors are not as bright as shown]

    I have never seen anything like this. I have just been looking at it for the longest time enjoying it. Sorry no help on the quilting.

    I'm not too familiar with quilting designs but I think a medium meander would do. Will not over power your hard work. Just a thought. Love the top and color combo.

    How about a couple rows of echoing each shape?

    I agree with the echo quilting. I think that would work nicely for this pattern. Cute!

    I would use a large, sharp pointed zigzag, all over meander to keep with the wonky edge design theme!

    I think the spiral out from the center would be great. Instead of doing circles out though I would do a straight line spiral to stay with the anglular look. I would start in the center of the center blocks and stitch straight to the center of each wall on the center block. I would move out from there to the center of each outer block wall until each block is quilted. It will look great whatever design you decide on. Great quilt top!

    this is a link that was posted here a couple of weeks ago. she didn't put sashing... her blocks look good without the sashing. I thought mine looked better with the sashing

    oops, the link http://www.fromthebluechair.com/2010...-tutorial.html

    Great quilt. If it were mine, I would do a zig zag medium fill stitching in the back ground of each square and outline each inside shape. Sandy 64

    I LOVE the modern look of this quilt. I immediatly thought of a Zig-zag like some of the others suggested...that would keep the sharp look and keep with the modern look. Sometimes on my own personal quilts I don't like to soften the lines either...I think sometimes it's good to keep them sharp.That's just my opinion.

    I would suppose it would depend on who it is for. If it is for a guy, I would say wavy lines (kinda like a brook). But, if it is for a woman, I would say concentric circles would be wonderful.

    I agree with echo quilting to reinforce an already sharp quilt.
