    Your quilt is so pretty.... The design is perfect for that fabric...

    You could stitch a motif....such as a flower, or heart, in the center of each block.... But I am wondering how well the design would show up on that dark fabric.... Still, I think I would give it a try, because a pretty motif would add softness to the quilt.

    I do a lot of hand quilting a quarter inch from the seams.... You could do that on both dudes of the outer frame.

    I'm sure that whatever you do will be lovely.... Be sure to post a pic of your quilting..

    SITD or echo quilting would make the squares pop. It's a beautiful quilt Monique.

    Monique, I feel your pain of not knowing how to quilt it. I made this same pattern for my son. It's sitting waiting for me to decide how to quilt. I don't think I would hand quilt (besides the fact that I don't know how, lol) . I was thinking more of tracing the square in a square pattern for my quilt since it's masculine. Still haven't decided.

    Hope you can figure it out. Love you fabric choice.

    I am not sure I understand what you all mean by echo quilting.

    I thought of echo quilting as well. 1/4" inside the seams on the colored fabrics. You probably wouldn't have to do it on the white, unless you felt it wasn't close enough together. Echo quilting follows the design of the pattern and seam lines.

    Echo quilting is used a lot in Hawaiian quilts. Yours is really pretty!

    I love it. You are one step ahead of me I don't have a clue how to post a picture! But I am a hand quilter. I would just do an X inside each center square. For the border I would do a vine or a scallop using my eleanore burns quilt in a day vines and scallops ruler. If you don't have one, you need to get it. I use it all the time. Takes the math and guesswork out of figuring size for repeats. I also liked somebody else's suggestion of doing a flower. That would be a nice contrast to all the geometric shapes you have going. Good luck and please post your finished project.
