Default Finished quilt top

Finished a quilt top to be donated for auction at fair later this summer..would love suggestions on ideas to quilt it..I plan on quilting around the stars with a decorative stitch, shown in picture..going to attempt to machine quilt on my Janome..it would add too much to cost of donated quilt to send it out for professional quilting.

A really nice quilt. I think the decorative stitch around the stars would look very nice.

I have no idea of how to quilt it. I just wanted to tell you how pretty your quilt is. Love all of your fabrics.

I donít have quilting ideas but your top is lovely! I like the focus blocks in the middle of the stars.

Just chiming in on how beautiful your quilt is, love the simplicity of your barn pictures with their barn quilts. As far as how to quilt it, I wil leave that to someone who has more experience than I. I am still at the meandering stage for quilting

Itís really pretty. Did you embroider the barns or are the barns a print on fabric?

I would probably just do a meander or FMQ. Since this is mostly what I usually do.
