What quilting design to use

bonnie-wJuly 4, 2007

I have finally finished this top and started to stitch in the ditch quilting, but didn't like the way it looked. I got it about half done and ripped it all out. It took hours and hours, but it's all out. My question is: What other design could I use beside stitch in the ditch? When you quilt do you think of the design on the back of the quilt? Any ideas you might have would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Bonnie

Bonnie,

Beautiful top! The colors remind me of the beach....how about some waves or swirls? What is your backing fabric?

Don't know if you're doing machine or hand quilting -- if machine, are you doing free motion? or ????

Probably not much help. lol

Bonnie, Pretty quilt! For quilting, I think some free motion loop-de-loop things following the yellow and blue might work.....someone who does a lot of quilting will know better than me. And, yes, I do try and think of how the back will look. Let us know what you decide and of course, we'll want a pic. @:)

I am sure I posted to this once already Bonnie where both Scraphappy and I suggested viny flowers or feathers in the yellow part. In fact, Scraphappy gave you specifics on doing the design.

Hope this helps.
