    Ocean theme TOP done need help with how to quilt

    This is the quilt I'm making for new newest granddaughter. The top is done. It's called "Ocean Frolic" and was fun making. Besides applique, you need to make tons of yo-yos (these were no fun). I know it's bright - but don't kids like bright? Anyway - I have no idea how to quilt this since it's so busy. Would you just tie it? I really don't know.

    I think it is beautiful! I would suggest wavy horizontal lines to suggest water.

      What an adorable quilt!! I agree with the prior post, wavy lines to give a ripple effect
      It's just so cute!!

        I just love it! Wavy lines or even random circles to mimic bubbles.

        Procrastinate. It frees up time to quilt!

          Thanks - didn't think about the wavy lines - since the blue yo-yo's is supposed mimic bubbles, I didn't know if quilting circles would work.

            I would do wavy lines to mimic water, but I would break my stitching lines and not stitch over any appliqués. Or even small fish in the center part with wavy lines in the blue "water" areas.

              How adorable! I can't think of any clever ideas, but wanted to say I agree about the yoyo's. My one dd wanted to make them for a graduation pin or magnet and it was a total pain! They ere cute though

                    So adorable!

                    Before even reading the comments I thought it just needed wavy lines to mimic water. Also agree to not stitching over the applique.

                    Someday I will have grandchildren. Been thinking I should make up several quilts and put them away. Just in case when they do arrive I might be too old to make them then or not even be here!

                      Wavy lines would look terrific.

                        Oh Vonnie, don't even think about us getting too old to quilt. How old is that? My grandmother was 92 when she made a beautiful blue quilt and when I was selling real estate, a client gifted me the last quilt her mother had made and she was well into her 90's

                            Oh that turned out a adorable! I am like the others wavy lines to mimic water. Or you could do the same affect vertically to simulate seaweed/kelp.
