    Default FMQ or straight line for Friendship Braid throw?

    I made this for a friend of mine then got stuck in renovation hell for several months & Im just now getting back to it. I wound up making it sideways because I didnt have enough braids to make it wide AND long enough going up & down, and by the time I figured that out it was just easier to turn it lol

    I'm no great shakes with FMQ - no feathers here! I can squiggle & meander & swirl & pebble (but I don't think pebbles all over is good as it gets really dense and I am less than uniform, lol).

    Should I try all over swirls or a meander or would straight lines be better?

    Nice quilt. I really like your colors. I think your meander or swirls would look good through the braid and if you want something a little different, straightish (probably not a word, but you get my drift) vertical lines in the blue horizontal stripes. Whatever floats your boat in the borders.

    Very nice top ! I would go with the swirls and pebbles, it would brake up the straight lines of the piecing and add a nice texture :-)

    Beautiful quilt!
    I would go for straight line quilting for sure. Enhancing the braids!

    Lucky friend to receive a gorgeous quilt like that? Great job
    It ain't no sin to be glad you're alive!

    Thank you! I did swirls in the braid, sitd around the white strips and - really proud of myself for getting this! - wishbone in all the dark blue. I didn't think I'd be able to do it, going from one side to the other, but I managed! The wishbone look better than the swirls, lol.
