    Usually people feel like you should soften the angles however, after looking at your quilt I think I would go with enhancing the angles and consider using varigated thread to make the lovers knots accented and the focal point. Whatever you choose I know it will be beautiful...happy quilting :thumbup:

    That is absolutely gorgeous! If I ever pieced anything that beautiful, I think I'd let a long-armer do the quilting for me - I'm not confident enough in my quilting and don't have the equipment to do it justice!

    I looked up the pattern that you suggested, but it does not give the dimensions of the pieces. How wide did you cut the strips ?

    I cut 1.5 inches, finish 1 inch. Lots of cutting, labeling and organizing!!

    Ogham lines, to emphasize the celtic knottyness. Look in Quilting Arts under the artist profile of Diane Savona. You can see it on Domestic Markings #2 in the cream border.

    Stunning, stunning. No opinion on quilting, but I wouldn't want anything to take away from your beautiful design.
