Don't look at it too long or you might lose your vision. I am at a loss as to how to quilt this. I thought to echo the lines on the prints but that seems like an awful lot of work for a quilt that's ALL prints.

It's made mostly from Hawaiian shirts and skirts. It's making me dizzy every time I look at it. And yes, that's an raggedy old blanket I'm using as batting.

I think an all over meander would work best. The quilting isn't really going to show up much with the quilt so busy already.
I like the way you have used the fabric.

I vote meander, too. It doesn't need anything but to be held together.

Cool prints!

I'd do an allover meander as well.

I'm going along with everyone else as far as meandering pattern, it'll give some movement to all the angles of the piecing. Gotta love those great Hawaiian prints!
