    Fifi & Fido Top

    Trying to decide how to quilt this. SID is obvious, with something in each of the squares, but I'd rather do an allover design. Do you think large squiggles would do it? I'll be using a Sweet 16. Not a great picture, but you get the idea.

    ​Nice quilt top! How about a dog house quilted in the big squares and bones/paw prints/bow wow or squiggles in the sashing?

    How about diagonally through each square one way or both ways. Tell fido and fife it is the fence to keep them safe.
    Love the quilt.

    The pink fabric already has squiggles in it and the border flowers are kind of squiggly, so all over squiggles makes sense to me. Cute quilt.
    I promise not to buy any more fabric until I see something I really like. Or it's on sale. Or I think it might match something.

    I do a lot of diagonal quilting these days. I love it. So classic. I vote for diagonal lines in the blocks.

    Thank you all. So far I have done SID around the large blocks, and plan to go back and do the rest of the straight lines. Then I guess I'll squiggle or something in the centers. A friend said that taking the time to do the rest of the SID will get me spending more time really looking at the blocks, so I'll figure out what will go best in them.

    I just made this pattern into a quilt and quilted it with diagonal lines.
