    Smile Fanciful flowers piecing complete

    Just finished piecing this top. It is the first one I have done all by myself with no help from my DSIL. It was a kit from Annie's. I am real pleased with it. Now I want to try and quilt myself. Any suggestions on what to do??

    I love your quilt and the only way I could quilt it would be in the ditch and around the petals.

    Oh my, that is so pretty! I agree with Cyn about the quilting part. If you've not done much of the quilting part, you might want to start with something straight forward, simple & enjoyable!

    Margaret... the 1st thing I'd do is sit back and admire! You did a beautiful job!!
    I agree on keeping the quilting simple. The fabric and design speaks for it's self.

    That's beautiful. Are the spirals in the fabric or did you make them?

    You could follow the shape of the petals quilting just inside the edge then again inside that stitching line, and maybe one more time. time. Then echo quilt following outside of the petals for a few rows in the flower blocks. I did something similar on one of my first projects and following a shape is easier than stitching in the ditch. Your quilt is beautiful! Bet your SIL is proud of you!

    I absolutely LOVE this! Great work! Thanks for sharing!
    Sorry I can't be any help with quilting - I'm still learning that myself.
    Here's a picture I found Pinterest that shows some quilting.

    Your quilt is gorgeous! You should be very proud of yourself. I agree with others, stitch in the ditch and echo the flowers and stuff.

    You might try echo quilting the petals ( just a couple lines in each) and stippling the background of those blocks. It would be nice to have a design quilted into each bigger piece. It isn't too hard - you concentrate on one block at a time and it will go well!
