    I just finished doing my first OBW. Have it sandwiched and ready to be quilted. My problem is, what do you guys think I should do for the quilting? I am thinking of a stippling stitch and then maybe some feathers on the borders. But wanted some other opinions before I decided. Thanks in advance.

    It is amazing how you got it pink on one side and blue on the other. It is beautiful.

    I love your OBW! It is wonderful and cheery.

    I have no suggestions as to how to quilt it, but I'll be watching this thread, as I am hoping to start my first OBW after the holidays.

    I would do a FMQ leaf design in the borders instead of feathers. I'd mimic the leaf design used in the fabric. An overall meander or stipple would work. If you could find a variegated thread to match-that would be awesome.

    I just have a such a hard time on decided on the quilting. I never have a problem on deciding fabrics, patterns. Just when it comes to the quilting, I have this mental block.

    I really enjoyed doing this OBW. It was really quite easy. Went together really fast and I love the way it turned out. I have a bright yellow for the back. Can you tell I love bright colors. :wink:

    Wow! The transformation is amazing! I think stippling and feathers in the border would look nice. Please show us what you do when it's done!

    This would be good. Just a thought, I dont think the quilting will show against the center, so something simple unless you plan to use both sides.

    Definitely do something outstanding in the borders. The center is so busy that you are going to lose a quilt pattern. Unless you have a plain back and the quilting will show there. I am doing one for a board member and hope to be done tomorrow. I will post it then.

    Stipple in the middle and then some echo design of the fabric in the boarders would be nice. A lovely quilt

    You have a very exciting quilt there. Love it. I am a beginner. I did do an alphabet one in red, white and blue (squares). Messed up the binding though. I also did the beginner rectangles. Messed up the binding on that one too. But, this all a learning stage. I would love to get good enough to do some like the easier ones I have seen posted. The harder ones....well may be some time in my life time.
