Default Quilting suggestions??

Hi everyone!
Now that I have some me time I知 ready to get back to quilting. This is the first thing I would like to get finished and I知 stumped and would really appreciate some quilting suggestions. Keep in mind, I知 certainly not that advanced with my longarm, though I have mastered edge to edge pantos and freehand meandering. This is a 120 x 120 king size quilt that will have Hobbs wool batting and it痴 all batiks including the back.

WOW That is beautiful. I can't help you, but I'm really interested in hearing what others have to say.

Your quilt is beautiful....pattern and colors! I don't have any suggestions as I'm learing to FM quilt myself and haven't mastered anything. MHO and only MHO is that when I see a quilt that is very busy in the piecing I prefer the quilting to be more subtle-let the quilt be the show-off....like I said -- MHO! Which do YOU prefer-lots of quilting or not? My own preference is that if the piecing is minimal then I'd like the quilting to stand out a bit more...but if the piecing is prominent then I'd like the quilting to be more subtle to show off the piecing. Good luck with your choice...wish I could have been more helpful!

Beautiful quilt and love your fabrics. I don't have any suggestions on quilting as I always send my quilts out to a LA quilter but I sure will be checking in to see what everyone suggests.

Lisa, welcome back and glad you have some You time! I suggest heading over to MQR (Machine quilters resource). its all machine quilters. Not all long armers and there is a thread on there for help. The subscription is $20 a year and is totally voluntary. The owner used to be a long armer and now keeps the site up for us. Lots of help over there. Sometimes someone will draw a suggestion on your quilt...and sometimes they have quilted one like it and will post how they quilted it.

I would suggest some dot to dot quilting in the body of the quilt and some feathers in the border. Or a nice panto in the body and then the feathers. If you are not confident doing feathers freehand you could get or make a stencil and mark them.

This is a perfect way to look at the quilting IMHO, too.
