    [quote=Celeste]I have absolutely no opinion on how to quilt since my experience is slightly above how much opinion I have, :lol: , but I must chime in here that that is a gorgeous quilt![/quot

    My sentiments exactly! That is one fabulous quilt! Colors are just spectacular and I love the applique border!

    That is a truly beautiful quilt! I would quilt diagonally through the triangles and do a smaller flower similar to what you have in your border in the white areas, and then maybe sprinkle in some butterflies randomly for good measure whever they might be needed. Do let us know what you decide on!

    I deeply appreciate all of you giving your opinions & suggestions. I will consider each suggestion.
    I also appreciate the very kind praise directed toward Spring Beauty. I really enjoyed making this quilt, probably because it was made in 1930 Repos, one of my favorite fabrics.

    Rebecca, you & I are fine. I appreciate your apology, even though it was not necessary on your part. Takes a big person to step forward & do an apology publically. (If I ask again on something else, I would enjoy your opinion? I always consider each suggestion, whether I choose to use it or not)

    Many Thanks to Everyone! Riley

    When I saw you picture I said "Oh, wow!" out loud! I just love this quilt! I agree that whatever quiting you do, you should keep it simple. Your design and your colors are the stars here!

    Such a lovely quilt. I am in awe that you hand pieced it :shock:
    I think I would "Cross Hatch" it. I love cross hatching!!! Then in the border ummm, ...well I looked back on your top and I would cross the body of it then I would do vertical lines in the border. Just a thought! I think it would be in keeping with the style of your quilt.

    Please let us all know what you choose either way it will be stunning!

    IMHO , do that four way feather design in the open white. It would reflect the pattern of the colored piecing. Then SID the triangles.
