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..
