How would you quilt "Dancing Umbrella" ?

Recommended Posts

Have any of you seen the quilt by Laundry Basket Quilts called "Dancing Umbrella"?   They are appliqued umbrellas that appear to be tumbling.    I just finished its 30 blocks and am about to put it on my long-arm using IQ.   Have any of you quilted this or seen it quilted?  I am wondering what computerized stitch pattern might look good with it and in what scale.  Your input is always so refreshing!

Carol, did you applique it by hand or on your machine?  I've had that pattern forever and want to do it, but haven't made up my mind how I want to applique it.  I saved this picture from the net with some quilting I liked.  It was done by RoseCity Quilter.  It looks like an all over pattern and reminds of a the wind.

Shirley ~ I do have a raindrop pattern that came with my IQ--I will look at that.

Oma ~ that is a wonderful pattern.  The wind is perfect.  Thanks.  It is fusible applique.  With today's fusible materials, I don't know that I'm going to do anything further with it, it is so well anchored.
