Wow! Now I know where to come for suggestions on my FIRST machine quilting job which will begin in a week or two I think.

First I have to paint a room or two when I get back from this visit to NC!

Good job!!

Sherry I saw your blog and the quilt is beautiful. I agree it doesn't need beads. I know your son will love it. Sandy

Hi Y'all! I finished the quilt. Named it "The Future's so Bright!" Decided not to use the beads but they won't go to waste! I posted a blog (two actually) with pictures. Thanx for all the suggestions and encouragement!

I also wanted to tell you that your thread choices will be great,the colors will pop those quilting lines nicely. I thought that was a great idea,I know your Son will Love his Heirloom quilt and treasure moms heart & soul always, He is a nice young man.

I try to be very careful about how to quilt for either a boy or girl. As much as I love feathers too, I'm not sure it would work for your son.
If you made it from a pattern, go to webshots.com and type in the name of the quilt. You might get hundreds of pictures of how different people quilted it.
I see it as stars in the sky. I might echo in the colors Teri was talking about, almost like the Northern Lights.
Just a couple of ideas,

Y'all are awesome! I knew i'd get some great suggestions! Teri--I made a "photo copy" of the top and have been playing with it under tracing paper. I want to be real sure before I start stitching. :wink: I agree with curves and flowing lines...maybe a gentle meandering flowing type of thing throughout. I'll diffenitly outline the design elements and I difinitly ignore the block seams . I like the firewirks idea too! Thanx so so much...I'll post my decisions and be sure to post a pic or two.

It's beautiful, and I see some metallic thread wanting to come out and play on that dark background. :)

Gorgeous quilt I love the dark background and bright colors. I like little flowers suggestions.

Ok, when I was looking at your quilt, my eyes were playing tricks on me and I could see black shadows of all the colored areas popping up all over the dark background - it was like fireworks! (Tired eyes, I guess) Maybe, though, you could make the quilting look like fireworks. If you need some curves to soften the spikes, you could curl some of the fireworks out like they're fizzling out.
This is fun to have TQS to bounce ideas around. You get so many ideas and maybe one will spark another idea and that one will spark a memory and that will lead to the final perfect solution.
Beautiful quilt and Good luck!

Your quilt is very pretty I Like the pattern alot I have a tuff time picking out quilting designs myself and thread,there are just so many choices. I would quilt around the design,in the ditch first off so the design pops out then I would maybe quilt vine-ing leaves or vine-ing feathers. I Look foward to see your finished quilt. I Know your son will Love it.
