    Chasing Wholeness in Koi Ponds

    I just finished this quilt cover and can now cross off the Oriental Garden design from my bucket list, which is rather long since I only first started to quilt 5 months ago. I am now debating on finding a LA to quilt the top ( don't know if its good enough for the expense ) or just do it myself as I have done with my other quilts - by sewing machine. Your thoughts?
    BTW, A big thank- you goes out to Yarn or Fabric who gave me a heads on the erroneous pattern measurements.

    Beautiful top! I would do a water meander in the fish part and SITD ditch on the frames?

    I am just finishing up the binding on one I did. Here is a link to the pictures of how I quilted it.

    I have the luxery of a LA though so I could go as fancy as I wanted on this. Yours turned out beautifully. I love your Koi fabric. LAing can be reasonable if you choose an all over panto and I think this particular koi panto would look FABULOUS on this quilt:

    Awesome job! It is great enough to send out if you want or figure your own design.
