This is a tablecloth quilt I'm making and not sure what to do about quilting. I've started around the center block and have a sketch of what I'm thinking of doing for the rest. What do you think? Do you have any other suggestions for me? I'd appreciate your input.

I think I would agree with the other gal on chat and do the "stitch in the ditch" on this one - it is so geometrical and that would work fine. You may be capable of doing some fancier stitching - but it is not a fancy type top - and meant as a table cloth - I think the straight stitching would be perfect. You might do some squiggles on the sashing part....?????

I don't know what to suggest, but I am sure what ever it is that you pick out, it's going to look just lovely. I really like your colors & the pie in the center. To cute!! :D :D :D

Maybe a diamond pattern for the main body of the quilt.

I agree with the diamond pattern. I think that would be so easy to do around the pie, and stitch in the ditch on the pie square.

Nice quilt! Looks fun.

Too much of a beginner to offer suggestions....but I just wanted to say that it is a wonderful quilt.

I would cross hatch the nine patches and then alternate the plain squares with little mini pies, blueberry sprigs and more cross hatching. I like lots of quilting in a quilt, especially if someone else is doing the quilting! :lol:

I have a friend that quilted an Apple Pie quilt for one of her customers. She wrote the ingredients around the center block in big pretty cursive stitching...."Sugar" , "Cinnamon","apples", etc. Then incorporated that into the other quilting. It was pretty suttle but looked very nice. :lol: Wish I had a picture for you, but I don't. :( I'm sure whatever you decide will be beautiful. :lol:
