    Default I'm at a standstill

    This was my February UFO project. I've got it almost do e but I'm stuck on how to quilt it. The pattern has loops with flowers and leaves..I think..here is the pattern pic. Click image for larger version.

    The loops I can do but I'm not quite ready for the flowers and leaves yet. How would you quilt it if it was yours? This is mine.

    Thanks for looking and I will take all suggestions.
    Funny how the pic came out...the borders are the same color teal as the triangles in the quilt.

    Could you just do loops all over? Your quilt is beautiful, so whatever you decide will lolk good.

    It's very pretty. Send it to MSQC and have them quilt it for you - they do an awesome job and will make excellent suggestions for a quilting pattern.

    Thanks everyone...I think I am going to do the all over loops. I might try to add in a 5 petal flower here and there.
    Dawn, unfortunately sending to M* is not an option. I really don't have the extra in the budget to send my quilts out. I really enjoy doing them myself, sometimes I'm just not sure what I should do.

    Your quilt is darling! I copied this picture a while back, someday I want to do one using this pattern.

    I love your quilt! I think I would do loops as well, but perhaps you could add in some heart in that... I did that with a few of my quilts and it's really easy... just go into the bottom of the heart instead of a loop, go into the top and then finish by crossing over the bottom of the heart again, then go into another loop. I always practice on paper with a pen first so that I can get the hang of it easily.

    I think loops all over with a few flowers sprinkled in would be beautiful. You done a great job. I also enjoy doing it myself, plus it saves money for more fabric. How about a stencil you could trace and follow?

    Adding leaves to your loops is easier than you might think. A leaf is just a lightly pointed loop with a vein put down the middle. Daisies are just several loops connected at the base. Give it a try on a sample sandwich and you will be amazed at your skill.
    I have been trying adding a bit to my basic meander or loopy doopies and it has been a confidence builder. Specially after the quilt is washed you will be delighted with your work.
