    I made a true lovers knot quilt for my husbands God son's wedding later this year. Blue is his favorite color. I like the pattern, but really how am I going to quilt this beast???

    Stunning quilt, well done. If you want to stick to straight lines, what about going diagonally through your block corners?

    Beautiful quilt! Even though many like to offset straight linear piecing with curved quilting I would prefer to emphasize you beautiful piecing by mimicing the lovers knot in the quilting. I would do a kind of SID but where the lovers knot is supposed to be going over/under I would quilt it that way just like celtic knots.

    Stunning, and as far as quilting goes I'd send it out and let a long armer do it then you don't have to worry about it!!! Best of luck..

    pattern is available http://tlc.howstuffworks.com/home/tr...uilt-block.htm

    I made a couple of modifications but essentially followed the patter. I removed a couple of strips on a couple of the blocks so that I didn't have the double color line when piecing the four blocks together. I really was an easy quilt to make.

    Most definately do it this way. Highlight your work.. And may I say what wonderful workings.
    I concur - either SID or echo the pattern but with a "weave".

    this is gorgeous. Maybe just some wavey lines in the yellow (to make the blue pop). Really really nice

    Simply Beautiful!!
    I am with these posters - SID and maybe do stippling to hold down the parts you don't want to emphasize (background) to make the knots POP.
