    Mystery Quilt top finished

    I did this back at the beginning of the month. Now I am just brain storming on how to quilt it (while I work on some other projects ... never just one project going! LOL)

    I'm leaning towards a SID, to let the design speak for itself. I'm open to suggestions, though.

    This is a beautiful modern quilt! Yes, you could do SID and the quilt will still be beautiful, but you could also spice it up with some designs that would make it fabulous. Look at Angela Walters' tutorials for some really good ideas. http://www.quiltingismytherapy.com/t...free-patterns/

    Great top! I would start with SITD too and depending on how much FMQ you want to do, maybe a different quilting background design in cream thread in all the cream squares. I think it would be a great place to do different Leah Day like quilting patterns.

    I can't really offer advice on quilting, but I can tell you it's a lovely quilt. Nice, soft colors.

    Tartan, it is funny you should say that. I was just now looking at her sight for inspiration! LOL

    Thanks for asking this. I have my mystery quilt done but haven't sandwiched or quilted it yet. I'll probably do SID on mine since I don't do FMQ. Like your color choices. That was the hardest part of this quilt

    I'd do echo quilting, following the seam lines 1/2" away - I think it would add to your design. Lovely quilt!

    Well, anything I add will be redundant, so have fun with it. I love the pattern and the fabrics. Don't forget to post finished pics!

    I did this same mystery quilt and am wondering how to quilt it also. Glad to read thru the responses here. Your quilt is very pretty and modern looking!

    Great Looking top ! I recognize that one I like SID so you don't take away from the quilt design

    I agree, her designs would really enhance the design.

    I would outline quilt, echoing the angles in the design.

    I think cross hatching would be good too. Diagonal cross hatching.

    Thank you for all the suggestions! Hard to choose just what to do! I may have to make another one just so I can utilize more than one option.

    I'm going to mull it over further while I finish my 4 yo's quilt and a quilt for a new nephew. If anyone has done this quilt AND has it all quilted, I would love to see a pic!
