    Just finished the top--looking for suggestions on how to quilt this using my home machine.
    Also--a bit afraid of the colors bleeding onto the white..I hear mention of "color catchers"? do i get those in the laundry soap area???

    I found the color catchers in the soap aisle there were a little hard to find the blend in :)

    Very cute! If I were quilting it, I would use some kind of curl, swirl, or even a heart type free motion(something with motion).
    Yes you can get color catchers in the laundry department.

    Maybe something like this or with a FMQ flower and swirl like I did in the lower corner?

    Thanks :) amazing what 6 fat quarters can do!
    You all are so creative...Candace! how did you do that?!?! Would the quilt police be upset if i draw on it with disapearing purple marker? im not so confident on the free motion yet other than my typical stipple.!

    :idea: Go ahead and use your marker. But, don't get an iron near it or it'll be permanent. The only way you'll get comfortable with FMQ is to bite the bullet and dive in. Your not going to improve if you don't start somewhere. :thumbup:

    oh I'd go with some form of motion, swirlys or circles for the quilting. The quilt top is cute, simple and adorable.

    That is so pretty. Love the color combo. I would use a swirly design on it.
