Progress Made... {UPDATED}

Pin It

The Old + New top is finished! It measures 50 x 60 at the moment and I'm pleased with how it's looking so far. :)

Now the fun part... how to quilt it. What do y'all think? I can always do free motion quilting but there are LOTS of seams to think about dealing with. Straight line quilting in some sort of grid pattern? I'm not sure...

*Thank you all for your kind comments and your great quilting suggestions!  I auditioned multiple patterns and ultimately settled on a meandering free motion pattern.  I'll write a bit more about my choice when I post the completed quilt pictures.  The quilt is done but it's raining, in the summer, in Texas {who ever heard of such a thing??} so I haven't been able to get good pictures yet!*

Jennifer- I really like the purple you added! It changes it up so much.

I like this so much....and it's purple!!! I'd say swirls or circles or something to balance out the straight lines would be my choice for quilting. Whatever you do will be awesome. I think I'll go make some cross blocks.....

Karen said...

Looks mighty good! I would do some sort of wavy/circular pattern to balance the angles and also wouldn't take anything away from the fab fabrics.

It looks soooo good! I love those colors today!

Your top is gorgeous, Jennifer! Love the colors so much, and the great mix of fabrics you used. Sorry, I don't have any good ideas of a quilting pattern. Unless you would use meandering in the squares, and leave the "cross" part to puff up?
Have fun deciding!

Wow, it looks amazing! Just think of your asterisk one next to it!

Danielle said...

Beautiful! The addition of the darker blocks really enhances it - good choice! I would go for a grid pattern for the quilting too I think.

Wow! That came out just FABULOUS!

Instead of a plain grid, what about something that echoes the crosses? So two lines close together, then a bigger space. Repeat vertically then horizontally? It's a pretty busy quilt, so any sort of detailed quilting will get lost.
