    I have hand quilted, on a hoop. I have heard that some just place the quilt in their lap and go for it. ( I would check out techniques, though as it means lots of basting.) I know what you mean about paying a LA to quilt it as it can be expensive. It is a beautiful quilt. I suggest making some blocks pop by using circle quilting around the stars. Feathers are very appropriate for this one. Look at your picture. You could do some straight line quilting too. Good luck in what you decide.

    As a beginning quilter, I do not have the experience to offer quilting suggestions, but it sure is a beautiful quilt. There's obviously been a lot of time put into that quilt. Congratulations on a great job!

    Goreous quilt, I usually do a large meander-large stipple, like that.

    Great quilt. I think you should handquilt it if you already have experience handquilting. Or machine quilt it yourself. Sometime LAers overdo the quilting. That quilt needs quilting that will not overshadow your beautiful work. All the best with whatever you decide. Happy quilting!
    PS love your country, have been there a couple of times. Good memories.

    It's beautiful. If you like to hand quilt, it would be a keepsake. Even something as simple as quilting 1/4 inch away from the seams, with this intricate a design, would be sensational. You can't really go wrong on this one.

    I love your quilt Sharon. It is big so if you haven't got a long arm then coping with it under an ordinary domestic machine would be a real challenge in MHO. The patterns are quite intricate in the centre so I would quilt a minimal amount there, and then in the ditch nearer the edges. I wish you luck whatever you do and it really is lovely.

    I think if you hand quilt it could take forever. It you machine quilt it could be really hard unless you have a long arm or mid arm. In deed it is a beautiful quilt. Keep us posted. I would love to see it when you are done. :):):)

    I'd machine quilt it . I would go around the basket blocks& the samplers in the middle. I would also quilt thru the middle of gold/lt brown diamond sqs on the outside of middle. then I'd fill in from there. very lovely!

    Sharon - what a beautiful quilt. I would do somthing simple because this quilt is busy with all kinds of interesting blocks. Just a meander or outline and something a little more elborate in the border area.

    What a wonderful quilt. I haven't a clue how it should be quilted but couldn't pass up the opportunity to comment on this beautiful quilt.

    Have you considered an all over cross-hatching? That might bring the long-arm costs down and still be awe inspiring.

    Cross-hatching would be my first suggestion. It would be easy for you to do either by machine or by hand. It would look very traditional as does the quilt. Great Job!!

    Absolutley gorgeous - love everything about it - colors, patterns, etc...
    As for quilting, when I get stumped I make a etching of it and start doodling in the various areas. Doing feathers, flowers, SID, etc... Surprising what comes ups. Whatever you decide, have fun with it.
