    I LOVE this quilt! I want to make one of these, but with only one knot for DH and I.

    I would agree...I don't think you should do any all over or circle quilting....simple is best to make your work stand out. SID. Or I would a tight micro-stipple or pebbles in the yellow (with a loftier batting) to make the blue pop out...as that is the favorite color.

    I have always read that geometric patterns should have 'curvy' quilting. I don't totally agree. I like the quilting to be like the geometric pattern with MAYBE a bit of a swirl here and there for interest. That's just me. Here's a similar pattern at Quilter's Cache. It's called Interlaced Blocks. Maybe you can get some quilting ideas there (page 3)

    Looking at the photos, you can't see the quilting much in many of them. I do like the quilting on Carol's block.

    Robyn's has swirls.

    What a beautiful quilt and you did an amazing job on it. I agree that maybe something curvy.
