    I'm not very imaginative, when it comes to quilting designs, but it's an awfully cute quilt!

    Thank you!

    it took me 1 month to embroider the squares.

    now i just need to think of what quilting pattern to use on the green squares??

    i am going to stitch in the ditch around the blocks which are 12" by 12"
    i am going to sew a outline with my sewing machine around the animals on the blocks

    if you have any ideas for what kind of quilting i should do on the green squares please post them on my other thread in the main section here's a link

    I'm not sure what you should quilt in the green squares but I would think something fairly simple so as to not take away from those darling embroidered blocks. They are DARLING! Some little guy is mighty lucky to get such a special quilt!

    would maybe half a dozen bubbles work? i was just sitting here and bubbles popped into my mind.

    Love this quilt! I would stipple around your animals so they pop and bubbles for the green sounds good too!
