OK, ladies and gentlemen. I am in a RUT and can not, for the life of me, get this beautiful quilt finished. I have tried many times and have had to take it apart to start all over again. I know how I want to quilt it, but am lacking the creativity and mojo to do so (I think there are meds that :lol: ).
Anyway, I need a quilter in the Seattle area that isn't going to want my first born. If anyone knows of someone, please let me know.
If you want to keep the person private, you can email me at [email protected]

I am currently working on this wonderful quilt for my daughter and need input from the masses. I would like to get info on how I should quilt this beautiful thing. I do have some ideas, but I would like to hear from you. :mrgreen:
The second picture is of the place of inspiration.
Any and all opinions are appreciated.

I'm not here to help but just to say, "Wow!"
Did you paint the fabric? It is going to be a beautiful quilt. Be sure to show it off when you have it quilted.

Just ditto what Yvonne said, but let us see it when you do have it quilted.

Spectacular! I would continue the natural theme with birds, wind gusts cloud shapes, etc, in the sky, and fishy, watery things below.

but then again, I am a bit odd, using needle & thread to doodle my quilting designs.

That is truly amazing, gorgeous, stunning..... part of me says stitch in the ditch only, because you have done such an amazing job on the quilt top, but, the other part of me agrees with moonpi that some creative quilting designs might set it off even more.... Whatever you choose to do, your daughter is one lucky gal to be the recipient of such a masterpiece! Can't wait to see it after it is quilted :D

Wow! what a great job you did. I also think you should go with birds, fish ripples in the water, wind through the sky. You really did a nice job.
