    Custom Quilt or all edge to edge design.

    I am trying to decide if I should send this to MSQC to edge to edge quilt or to find someone local to do a custom quilt design.

    Pretty! I would sit down with the local and see what ideas she has first.

            Beautiful! Before you get it quilted, you might want to undo the block on the lower right corner and rotate it clockwise a quarter turn, so it will match the pattern of the other three corner blocks. But it's still a beautiful quilt.

              I kept looking at the corner blocks thinking they were right, then I finally saw it! Good eye, am2901! It's going the same direction as the next one, it really fools the eye.

              The quilt is gorgeous! I think you'd be pleased either way, but I agree check out a local LA first and maybe just get some ideas of what someone would quilt on it. Edge to edge would be very nice and just let your piecing shine, custom could add some drama and bold direction.

                Gorgeous quilt! If it were mine I'd look into custom quilting first.

                  Beautiful quilt! I would check into custom quilting. With the amount of "white" space, I think custom quilting would really make the colors of your piecing pop. I would check out custom quilting on Pinterest to get some ideas before seeing a Longarm quilter.

                    Beautiful quilt. Would love to know what pattern it is if you would care to share that info.

                      The pattern is the binding tool star from MSQC. The last row is my own design.

                        That mistake is corrected. We discovered it after the photo had been taken. I do not have a photo with it corrected. Thanks for noticing.

                          Beautiful. I would go with custom quilting. Julia is in Kansas now. Not sure how far she is from Stockton.

                            It's a beautiful quilt for sure. As for custom vs edge to edge quilting... I usually ask myself "Is this quilt top worthy of spending the extra money on custom work?". And in this case it's a resounding YES! It is definently worth at least sitting down with someone and seeing what they suggest.

                              That's a gorgeous quilt. I would at least talk to the LAQer first and she how she thinks it should be quilted.
