    Default How to quilt this?

    I am at the point in the quilting process that seems to stump me often. How do I quilt this one? At first I was thinking of a small meander in the white areas with a variegated thread but not sure now and I need to do something in the hearts and the borders too.

    love your quilt, the colours are fabulous
    how about meandering hearts as an all over pattern for centre,
    then sew over border with hearts bunting?

    What a pretty quilt! I like the idea of the meander...How about echo quilting inside the hearts? Maybe two or three echos a h.alf inch apart

    I love those colors! Idk how to machine quilt though so sorry I am no help. Hand quilters struggle with figuring out quilting designs too. I would do a cross hatch on the white spaces to offset the curve on the hearts. Show us again when you're done please!

    How about paisleys or feathers inside the hearts?

    I think with all the vertical seams, I would do diagonal cross-hatch stitching on the whole quilt. Or, you could meander in the white and something inside each heart and piano key border. I would use just white thread in the white sections though as to not take away from the hearts. Whatever you are most comfortable with. Quilt is lovely with its bright colors.

    I think the small meandering in the white part with white thread will help make the hearts pop. You can use the variegated thread in the inside of the hearts. Any of the suggestions for the hearts will work, echo, feathers, paisleys, etc. Depends on your comfort level.
