Bright and cheerful. Love the colors. Can't wait to see how you quilt it.

I bet you are so glad that you have accomplished something that you thought you couldn't manage to do. What a great job you have done, your daughter must be so proud too!!

I mostly do a large meander, FMQ. Straight lines take much longer and much more wrestling with the quilt.
Beautiful quilt, I like the 3-D effect.

You did a great job. It should now be inside your comfort zone.

Not sure of your level of quilting, but the rule of thumb is if the design is angular, quilt curvy. I was thinking waves or clamshells.

I love, love, love it. The bright colors are great and optical illusions pop out. Great work. I only do free motion quilting but I would hate to mess up the illusion you have going, maybe stitch in the ditch of the seams running across the blocks. I am sure other quilters will have good ideas for you . Good Luck.

I agree.... What a great quilt, you did an EXCELLENT JOB
