    Echo quilting so as to not detract from the beautiful design and fabric. Love your quilt.

    I think some echo quilting would be lovely. Your quilt is stunning!

    Whatever you do to quilt it, it will need to really play off your awesome appliqué work! I have a Morris appliqué book and would love to try this someday. I can only dream that it will turn out as beautifully as yours has!

    I love your quilt, and although I am not as experienced as the others about quilting, I can invision the echoing or stippling around the appliques so they will pop. Oh it is beautiful -

    I know it would look better to have a LAQ do it, there are some awesome quilters on this board. Charisma has worked her magic on a couple of mine. But, due to finances, I will have to muddle through. I would just have to pack it away if I didn't try my hand at it. Wish me luck.

    Wow!! What a beautiful quilt-maybe your quilter will have suggestions - I have none for the quilting.
    This too shall pass.

    Your quilt is stunning. I think I would look at a few books or pics online before deciding on quilting. It is sew gorgeous, you really need to give it some thought.

    Your quilt is absolutely stunning. It would lend itself to echo quilting around all those wonderful flowers. It would make the flowers pop out. That is a traditional application.

    I can't give you any tips on the quilting but anxious to see it when you're finished.

    Can't help on the quilting, however, your applique blocks are exquisite - great job.

    OK so it sounds like you need/want to do this yourself. You don't indicate if by hand or machine so I am assuming domestic machine.

    Don't know how comfortable you are with FMQ but SITD around all the applique would be in order here. There is no reason you can't mix hand and machine. Back before I got my LA, I would do this quite often because my FMQ on a domestic machine were non-existent.

    So I would hand quilt anything that wasn't a straight line. For background, it would be a ton of starts and stops but this would look spectacular with a simple 1" crosshatch done on point in the background of all the applique blocks. You can lay painters tape for your first line and then use that as a guage for the rest. Easily done with a walking foot and takes only patience and space to have the quilt supported while you work. The result, while simple, will be quite elegant and in line with the design.

    Edited to add, an alternative to CH would be beadboard quilting. The two can easily be mixed. You may want beadboard behind the center panel and CH behind the surrounding blocks.
