Quilting idea

chickie1November 12, 2010

I am in the process of quilting a quilt top. I have chosen a pieced basket block with alternating WOW block. I have started quilting a flower design on the WOW block but would like some suggestions on how to quilt the basket block. any ideas?

I think I'd SID the basket block although I might put in a fine background to make it stand out, like a fine stipple or little circles. It depends on the flower design and blending it in. Can the flowers be moved into the background of the basket? if so, just run it up to the basket pieces and SID those.

Anxious to see your finished product.

I was thinking about SID and I like the idea of the little circles. I tried to upload a picture but couldn't do it. Will try again and see what happens. Thanks for the idea.
