    I think a geometric outline with sharp corners would make it look uber modern, while a meander would make it look very traditional and cosy. I would fit the recipient into either category based on their tastes and quilt accordingly.

    I think it would look great either way!

    I think outline. because of it's geometric straight lines. The meandering I think would make the quilt look out of place because of its flowing lines. Just my opinion. It is very lovely!!!! nice colors too.

    I do almost all of mine with a large meander,stipple,FMQ, whatever you want to call it, I think it is the perfect quilting design for 99-1/2% of my quilts.
    It is beautiful and you did a great job on it.
    Good luck quilting it.

    I love your quilt. Have you considered straight lines throughout? Perhaps the size of the small white and red small fourpatches. Is that an inch?

    I think I would do a straight diagonal through the little squares. And a pretty motif or meandering in the larger diamond shapes.

    I think that I would use a combination of meandering and outline. I would need graph paper to sketch the quilting pattern before I could make up my mind what went where. No matter what you choose, I know it will be beautiful!

    I would stitch in the ditch if I could sew a quilt like that! It is stunning. Superb use of colors.

    What if you just did straight diagonal stitching over the whole quilt....in one direction only....and that being perpendicular to the diagonal lines formed by the small 4-patches? If you did that, I think only between the 4-patches where they meet, not through them. The diagonal lines formed by the 4-patches and larger squares is so strong visually that quilting lines in the opposite direction would balance out the movement somewhat.

    It IS a lovely quilt and you did a fantastic job on it!!! Karen
