    How do I quilt this one?

    My DD is having her second baby and we know it's a girl. DD requested that I make a baby quilt in hot pink and zebra print. After searching my stash and purchasing the baby zebra print on line, this is what I came up with. I think it turned out really cute. The binding will be the zebra print. My question is how do I quilt it? I am open to ideas so please tell me yours.

    I have also made a matching crib sheet in the baby zebra print.

    Oh...I love it...its absolutely gorgeous...so cute
    If it was mine I would probably consider just a stitch in ditch on all the straight lines and around the circles to make them pop. Can't wait to see what you end up doing

    Pretty! I'm not a big fan of a lot of quilting. I would stitch in a ditch around everything and smaller and smaller circles inside the circles.

    What a cute baby quilt. So different. I would stitch in the ditch and I like the idea of making small circles. She will love it.

    I would echo quilt around the objects, until they converge.
    Waves of color give my quilts their splash!

    That is adorable - I would not have pictured a quilt like yours from the fabrics you described - The quilting? I don't know - maybe just an easy stipple so it doesn't take away from the beauty of the quilt.

    This quilt is so cute - I love the colors and fabrics you chose. Maybe outline quilting around the circles? Don't know much about quilting, so I really am no help.

    Your quilt top is adorable! As to how to machine quilt it? I think I would either use my Bernina wiggle stitch to quilt down all the lines to mimic the rick rack and/or do circles in the circles and squares. If I had a long arm machine with the groovy board that did perfect circles, I would cover the whole quilt in them.

    how sweet, but keep the quilting simple, you don't want to smother the baby under a heavily quilted quilt. very nice

    Love the quilt top! I'd SID, inside the circles and then do a little bit of echo quilting outside the circles (but not too close together), to help give the top a sense of movement....lucky baby!

    Very Pretty.
    I like to stitch on each side of the ditch, but very close to it. I like the outline look it gives.
    The color choices are terrif
