    Suggestions needed! Please! 🌟

    Hi everyone! I just finished piecing this lap quilt together and I am looking for quilting ideas. I am a hand quilter and I feel like I always do the same things! Take a look and let me know what all you talented quilters think! Thanks and have a great day! 🌻

    You might get inspiration thinking about who this is for...and hand quilting a personalized motif in the white sashing. Then use your normal techniques on the blue border and the pieced strips.

    if you want it to be more modern, you could do large circles and or straight lines. Or perhaps flowers and vines.

    depends on the look you want... Traditional fancy feathers in the white, or try the new fad of curved crosshatching?
    Modern? straight lines all the way across, then maybe some simple applique sprinkled on the top?

    Just my thoughts of what I might do.

    I hand quilt everything. I would echo stitch each "piano key" and use a design from a stencil in the borders...sometimes you can create a border pattern using ideas from stencils...This is where I order my stencils from- cheap and lots to choose from or look for ideas http://quiltingstencils.com/viewallblocks.aspx

    Yes, the white sashing and the borders are excellent places to show off your talents. I love cables; feathers; vines. I think something very 'flowing' in those areas would 'soften' the straight lines of the quilt - if that's the look you'd like to go with.

    Not knowing who this is for...
    I'd quilt vines/leaves in the white.
    Zig-zag in the floral print.
    And go with outlining the border.

    Whatever you decide, it's sure pretty!

    I don't know, but it's a cute quilt!
    If a woman's work is never done....why start?

    Egg and dart would be pretty in the white border, and I would quilt around designs in the fabric for that different look you want.

    Do you like to cross hatch. You could do a diamond pattern for a slight change.....

    I see a chain design in the colored areas and cross hatch in the white.
