    This is what I've been working on. It's going to be a secret pals christmas gift. Any Ideas on quilting will be appreciated. I think an all over quilting will take away from the blocks...any ideas???

    That is a very nice quilt and your secret pal should be thrilled when Santa comes.
    Are you using a whole cloth backing? It would be unique if you stitch in the ditch around each center square and windmill square in the blocks then around each side of the complete block(s). What thoughts have you had about it?

    It will be whole cloth on back...I am leaning towards the SID idea to make the blocks stand out. I love the feathered wreath idea but there is no way I would try that on this quilt. I've tried them on a pratice quilt before and they were not to pretty.

    I done this a week ago...might try something like this.

    Wow!!! What a great job. Sorry I have no ideas. I'm sure whatever you decide will just add to the beauty of your quilt.

    This one would be fun to hand quilt, if you do that. I like to and just have to see a pattern emerge for me. I would cross hatch the center reds and 1/4 inch for the 1/2 triangles and a long easy pattern for the long pieces.

    I would SID most of it and put a beautiful design in the solid centers. Great job.
