    Beautiful colours, I'm drawn towards earthy tones. sorry I'm new to quilting also so not too sure where to advise you as to where to start. One of the experts here will though I'm sure - Good Luck.

    This quilt could take any kind of quilting or be tied. It's all according to what you like todo. Are you a machine quilter or hand quilter :?: stitch in the ditch or meander :D I'm not much help I guess lol Anyway it is very pretty, i like the colors you chose..they go well together :D

    That is gorgeous!! I, too, LOVE earthy. I'd do a fairly large meander to not distract from the deisgn. I'd use a variegated gold-brown-thread. Oh, I mean that's what I'd ask my quilter to do. :lol:

    Personally, I would either tie it with a varigated pearl cotton floss or stitch in the ditch. Gorgeous quilt and great job on it!!!

    Beautiful! I think I would stitch in the ditch on the diagonal lines, then step back & look. If I was on a roll, then I might do the horizontal & verticals too. :)

    How cool. You have a clothesline. LOL Haven't seen one of those in years. I love the colors in your quilt. Nice job too. Find a stencil you like and size it to fit your blocks is one option.

    I love the colors you chose. I usually quilt in straight lines.

    Sometimes I stitch a quarter inch from the seam instead of stitching in the ditch.

    Thank you everyone for your kind words and ideas on quilting.

    Jacquemoe,.... I had to laugh when you said"a clothesline" haven't seen one of them in years. I have to have one, just love the smell of fresh dried sheets and towels. Hubby wanted to take them down, but I won't let him.
