    It would depend on how much more work you want to do on it.

    Wow, what a lot of hours you have put into that quilt. It's gorgeous!! Do you hand quilt or quilt on your DSM? Speaking as a longarm quilter, heavy custom quilting with tons of SID, background fillers stitched in etc. But considering that some areas are pretty "busy" you certainly do an edge to edge design. Whichever design you choose your quilt is going to be a knockout..it already is!!

    This looks like an award winning quilt - I'd take it to a long arm quilter if I could afford it. In my mind I see lots of different designs going into it's many beautiful elements.
    Hope you can share the final results on this one with us :P

    I think lots of feathers in and around the blocks and background would be stunning.
    Also taking it to a long arm quilter might be the best idea. It's very large to tackle on your own domestic machine.

    Considering the variety of the quilt-a border to border design might work well with it.

    This is really spectacular. If it was me, I'd be ditch quilting the straight bits, with free motion on the cream and borders. Whatever you decide, I'm sure it's going to be beautifully enhanced.

    To hand do would be wonderful and you would for sure have an heirloom on your hands however a long endeavor as well. Start in the middle and let each area speak to you is my thought.

    Unless you have a long arm, I wouldn't try to machine quilt it. It is so big. It is so beautiful. Charisma puts up pics of quilts she has long-arm quilted and they are always exquisite. I would try to find some of her posts.

    Your quilt is really beautiful. If you're not going to hadn quilt it, it will be too much of a struggle to quilt it on a domestic machine. It really would be better on a long arm. Charisma's work enhancesthe overall apperance of a quilt. She is excellent.

    Unfortunately I stay quite far away, otherwise I would have sent it to her. I love to see her work and admire her abilities.
    thanks for your comments, they are greatly appreciated.

    If I couldn't sell something to have it long armed I would definatly hand quilt it. I love hand quilting especially on a traditional looking quilt as beautiful as this one. What about the "big sticthes" and some of the turkey track sticthes? These would make the quilting go faster and fit in with the country look.

    Can I please ask what turkey track stitching is? I haven't heard of that one. Ta

    I see lots of stitch-in-the-ditch around the baskets and blocks. Feathers in the background....

    I just love every thing about your quilt! If you are as good of a hand quilter as you are a piecer you should hand quilt it. If you have more money than time sendit to a la quilter. Hope that helps you decide. I love your word "scoobie".

    Greetings Sharon, Absolutely Stunning. A little bit of old fashioned tying off might add interest to some machine quilting. Auntie B.
