I have had this made for awhile & I am a little stumped as to how I want to quilt it. It needs to be finished!

Do you have suggestions for me, please? (Please keep in mind that I am a hand quilter!)

TIA! Riley

WOW!!! That is beautiful! So many ways you could quilt it. Just doodle some ideas on paper until you come up with a winner. :D

Wow! What a gorgeous quilt! I'm no help on the 'how to quilt it' problem. I have the same difficulty with my quilts. Decisions!!! Meanwhile you've got a beauty there! Have fun!

Beautiful Quilt. As for an idea on how to quilt it. I'm sorry I fell in to that trap recently of giving an opinon or thought, And I got politely snubbed, so I won't make that mistake again. But your quilt is beautiful, and I'm sure what ever you decide is best.

Oh, I am so sorry Rebecca! I am sure that was not the intent to snub your suggestion?

Perhaps I should not have ask for opinions, did not mean to stir the waters.

I read a lot, admire more than a lot, just don't post much. Surely do enjoy the talents here.

Oh, I just love it. Since you hand quilt, I would suggest showing off your skill in the white areas. Something floral and frou frou? It's lovely as a top, I can't wait to see it hand quilted. :D

I think with this quilt, I'd bite the pocketbook & have it machine quilted with a large overall pattern. The quilt pattern itself is so detailed & so colorful, I wonder if all the work put into hand quilting would be overlooked.
