Can someone please give me some quilting ideas for this?

Recommended Posts

My niece asked me to quilt this for her.  So far, the only quilting I've done is pantographs.  Would a pantograph be okay on this with the hand embroidery - and if so, what would be a good pantograph?  Or can you give me ideas for some very simple custom quilting and/or ruler work?

Thanks in advance!

Really pretty quilt.  I think it needs more than a panto (imho).

SID the white squares and cross hatch right over the embroidery.  Use a very fine thread like Wonderfil Deco-Bob 80wt.

SID around the stars and echo that about 1/2 inch in the star.  Freehand simple e & l in the sashing, using the colour change to keep the e's consistent.

I like Gails suggestions.  Superior threads also makes a thread called Microquilter that would be great for the crosshatching and the SID.  I recently used it and really liked it.

That's a beautiful quilt. I'm looking forward to seeing it done. Good luck.

Awesome job.  The cross-hatching really enhances the cross-stitched blocks.
