Quilting advice needed

Recommended Posts

I just finished piecing this quilt. It is English Paper Pieced and will be the cover quilt for a new pattern for this quilt. I am looking for advice on how to quilt it. I want more than a pantograph and more than continuous lines, but am drawing a blank. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I have a hand driven millie.

I usually google the name of the quilt and hope some quilters have posted pictures of their finished work. I always like the look of quilting 1/4 of an inch around the piece to set them off.  Maybe you could put a piece of plastic over it and try that, then something may pop into your mind.

Maybe some sort of celtic link motif in the centers to play off the linked rings?  

It's lovely!

Nice quilt! I’d probably ditch the links, and put something inside the big cream areas dense enough to have the pieced links pop.  I’ll look forward to the finished piece and see what you end up doing. Love the quilt so far :-).
