Get a piece of clear plastic. Draw your design on the plastic. Then you can put over the top of the quilt and see how it will look.

You could do crosshatching (making diamonds) on the yellow sashing. :thumbup: Here's some ideas....
I think amandasgramma has the answer (and what a neat way to do it!). All I could think of was "don't stipple or meander!" That would detract from your fabulous design. amandasgramma came up with lines that enhance your quilt.

Isn't this QB great!
