    Hot Chocolate BOM

    I have had this quilt as a UFO in my closet for about 5 years. I have been working straight on this for about a month to finish it up. Well I have the top done anyway. I haven't quilted it yet because I honestly don't know what to do with it. I am debating on sending it to a long arm but I would need custom quilting and that tends to be costly. My free motion is not the best. All I have is a small cheapy brother machine. Its fine for the most part for all over patterns but I worked very hard on this quilt and I don't think it would do it justice.

    First of all, welcome to the board. Secondly, what an adorable quilt! I love snowmen anyway & this top is too, too cute! I wish I had some suggestions for quilting but I don't. Maybe just echo the appliques? Or go with an all-over snowflake pattern? Whatever you decide on, please post it again when it's all done!

    Great quilt top! You can start saving your pennies for a custom LA, wait until your FMQ skills improve or hand quilt it. I don't do a lot of hand quilting because I am slow but this fall and winter might be a good time to hand quilt your top.

    I love your quilt. If it was my own quilt I would take it to my favourite longarmer and ask what the cost would be for custom quilting. It is not a huge quilt so you may be pleasantly surprised at the price. Whatever you decide please let us see it again when it is done. Thank you for sharing.

    You've got stitching within each block that shows. What about simply stitching in the ditch for all sashing and borders?

    Your quilt is just adorable! I agree with burchquilts...echo much of it. I'm of the opinion that less is more when it comes to quilting and don't like to see quilts where the design gets lost in the quilting

    Very Beautiful!! You can outline the applique about 1/4" from your stitching and do some echoing in the backgrounds. Quilt some stars in the sky. Practice first on sample blocks with your DSM. As long as you have a FMQ/darning foot and feed dogs you can do it. In the early days of quilting for me I couldn't lower the feed dogs and just FMQ without putting them down and it worked fine. Good Luck.

    What a lovely quilt.
    I love it. I would go with the outline quilting around the applique.
    Thanks for sharing...

    Welcome from Northern California. Love Snowmen and this is one of the cutest I have seen. Looks like you put a lot of time and effort into this panel. Whatever you do be sure to show us again when you have it finished. BrendaK

    I am fairly new at this, but I see shadow quilting around all the appliqued items if that is close enough for your batting. Your quilt top is adorable and I would think that the shadowing and nothing more would hi-lite your beautiful work.
