Help with quilting design

Recommended Posts

How should I quilt this one? I bounce back and forth between a panto and quilting the blocks with a block design with something different in the sashings and border. The border is narrow.post-65470-0-91120700-1445797005_thumb.jpg

I like the idea of doing something in the blocks and then something different in the sashings.  If you can do cc freehand, the blocks would go relatively fast.   I like this quilt and want to see what you do with it!

I think your quilt blocks are so busy it wouldn't matter what you put in them; I envision something with beautiful curves in a square design so the corners of each block are quilted. I just saw a magazine with a similar heavy pieced block that had a round stencil in it and in my humble opinion; it appeared the corners puffed up and I didn't like how that looked. Your computerized system will make this slick! YAY!

What about a simple eight point flower made of arcs?  I drew out a picture, but I can't post it.  I can email it to you if you want.

 

In the sashing you could put leaves and vines.

That would be great chickenscratch! A picture would help me envision how it would look. My email is geraldinekaze@gmail.com. It's my sisters quilt so I can put anything I want on it so thought I'd use it to practice some custom work.

I also love Chickenscratch/Teresa's idea!  Or you could even use a stencil design...

Put the same same design in the sashing.  Then go to Leah Day's page on YouTube, and put a different design is every block.  Start looking at beginner and work your way through to advanced picking the design(s) that fit your likes and comfort zone.  You will get a lot of practice free handing different designs doing it this way.  Let us see the quilt when it is done.
