    William Morris quilt ready to quilt

    My Wm Morris "Friends" quilt is ready for quilting. I would like some suggestions for quilting please. I posted it although the pictures are awful. As you can see, it is not made entirely from Wm Morris fabrics. I didn't have enough and used some from my stash. I would be more pleased if I had hand appliqued it. Thanks for looking.Name:  Wm Morris 002 (480x640).jpg

    Wonderful quilt with lovely colors. Newbie to QTQ so I'm no help in that regard. You'll do great which ever way you quilt it. Please remember to post when you finish.

    Very pretty.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    Quilt is beautiful. I would use Hobbs polydown and stipple little stipples all around the appliques.

    Beautiful quilt! My suggestion is send it to Charisma for quilting. She's amazing with quilts like this.

    If the applique's are hand turned, then hq is my suggestion. So that it stays in the same quilting family. If they are machine applique , then LA quilting is my suggestion. I wouldn't either way, put too much detail in the quilting for it to take away from the applique. Either way it will be stunning. Heck, it's stunning now!

    It is machine appliqued. Do you suggest just quilting around the designs and maybe fill the background with stippling?

    If that appliqué work is anchored with machine stitching on the edges I would do some various stippling in backgrounds I.,e., micro stippling,echo,and McTavishing some parts. But, also with a matching thread "lock"down some of the larger appliqué pieces so the don't "bubble" up when finished by say just a gentle outline between two parts of whatever it is---like outline bird wings. If those app-pieces are merely fused down I would want to straight stitch on the very edges before quilting it. In those sashings I would do some sort of simple design like a leafy vine or swirls just so they too lie flatter and don't pucker up. However you do it it will be lovely.
