    I have just finished piecing this baby quilt. I believe the pattern is called Chinese Coins. I usually just stitch in the ditch or stipple my quilts but would love some suggestions on another way to quilt this. I recently bought some freezer paper and remember someone talking about using it to mark a quilting design, then pressing it onto your quilt and stitching the pattern. I'm not sure if my memory is correct on that. I would really appreciate some suggestions as I am ready to try something a little more challenging. This quilt is up on my design board. The borders are white and are a little hard to see in this picture.

    I also like a design I saw in a magazine. It was just large random "S"s everywhere and in other directions.

    I love it! How about a vine with flowers and/or leaves?

    Use a verigated thread containing the colors of your quilt.
    Use a binding made with pieces of those same fabrics &
    it will look fantastic with meandering pattern quilting.

    I would meander it personally. And use the brightest variegated thread you can find. It will look great on the white and bring the colors together.

    I think some swirlies/loops/leaves/flowers would look great such as a pattern by Jackie Brown on www.longarmsupplies.net called Leaves In The Wind.

    I am not sure how to quilt it, but I did want to say it is a very pretty quilt.

    I would keep it simple, so it will stay soft. I have overquilted quilts which makes then too stiff. Just stitch in the ditch with a single cable/rope down the white spaces.

    Thank you all for your great ideas. I am in the middle of quilting as we speak - but ran out of bobbin thread so need to make a run into town! I used someone's suggestion and am stippling all over with a verigated thread. Will post a picture when finished. You all are such an encouraging and inspiring group of people!
