    Suggestions for quilting Warm Wishes?

    I have an appointment this Thursday to use the HQ longarm at the LQS. I'm looking for ideas for quilting this warm wishes quilt. I would love your suggestions.

    My abilities are pretty limited...overall design would be easiest (swirls, loops, mctavishing, general doodling) but have tried some feathers. I'm really not very good about retracing lines. What do you think? It's a twin-size quilt.

    Ooooooowow! Your quilt is amazing! The fabrics themselves may suggest an allover swirl, something along the lines in the paisley. I'm going to be starting a Warm Wishes and will be following your progress. Have fun at the LQS!

    Even tho I don't LAQ, my suggestion would be loopy swirls, as suggested by the fabric. This is gonna be FABULOUS! I already love the top so it can only be even more beautiful when you get it quilted! Please post again then, OK?

    I agree. The fabric has wonderful swirls in it and will enhance this beautiful quilt even more so. Great choice of fabrics for this pattern.

    There is a video on u tube called Dwirling, it is a very simple technique, i think it would look cool on your quilt. By the way love your quilt.

    I have no ideas on the quilting but that is a very pretty quilt. Love the colors and the focus fabric. Is it fussy cut or paper pieced?

    Wow, thanks for your suggestions, and the pointer to the dwirling video. Perfect -- swirls and echoes, as recommended. And it looks (operative word) easy. I'll try that!

    Medallions were fussy cut. Very quick, simple quilt. I fell in love with the medallion fabric and bought the green at the same time. Shopped later for the turquoise, and found a good cream to go with it.

    The backing fabric is sort of a beige on cream swirl...will show it after the quilting is done and I take more pictures.
