    I absolutely love this! It always gives me a beveled illusion look! That is my story and I'm sticking to it. I always think of beveled glass and mirrors when I see this pattern!

    Your quilt is really beautiful. I looked on Pinterest and did a search for Kaffe Fassett quilts to get ideas on how to quilt it, but I don't know how to post a picture from there to here! There was one that was similar to yours that was quilted very simply in the ditch. Others had swirls quilted. Both styles looked wonderful. Your quilt will look stunning no matter what type of quilting you do.

    Love it! Teri, for quilting I'd be putting some wandering feather design in (like this... http://www.annebright.com/shop/produ...-feathers-b2b/). I suspect you won't see much other than texture, and I'd want to do something curvy to soften all of the lines.

    Or this ... http://www.annebright.com/shop/product/cock-s-comb-b2b/ - one feather frond in each quarter of a square.

    Either of these should freehand fairly well.

    (No affiliation with Ann Bright, just a fan!)

    I don't do lines, strips, or such....at least I haven't until this one....this one has many!

    I love this quilt! I have a bundle of fat quarters that I'm saving until I can find just the right quilt to make out of it. You did a great job!

    I too think that some curvy quilting would be good. The quilting will probably be hard to see but something curvy will be a nice contrast with the lines.

    I saw a quilt similar to this and it was quilted in circles. HTH
