    This lap quilt is pinned & ready to quilt but I am at a loss as to what to do. It seems to me, with all those sharp points the quilting should be softer, circular or wavy. What do you think? Any suggestions appreciated.

    Beautiful quilt, I agree, circular or wavy quilting would enhance the gorgeous colours.

    Very pretty, great job! Yes, just some sort of soft meandering would look nice & not take away from the design, love it!

    You're right on, I should have mentioned where I found the pattern. A member previously posted a smaller bright colored buzz-saw quilt. I'm sorry I don't remember her name.

    Your quilt is beautiful. Meandering would be perfect. Delectable mountains could also be done with this method. I did one making each piece separately, this would be SO much faster. Thanks for the link.

    I think spirals would give it the 'saw' look very pretty and nice color combination.
