Garden Fence Quilt Top Finished




Whew, I finished sewing this quilt top together yesterday.  It took me a while to sew all the rows together, it's 100 inches square, so I'm guessing that is at least a king size!  I do love this color combination too.  Anyway, I will put this top away now until I have my longarm to finish it in about 3+ months.  Anyone have any ideas on how to quilt this one?  I will probably do an all over pattern, but I'm wondering what sort of style would suit this one.  All suggestions are appreciated:)

Remember, if you are interested in the pattern you can find it here.

You can buy templates that you just trace around with your needle on the longarm. I'm using one right now - some kind of swirl for the centers and doing like loops for around it. I think that would look kinda neat on yours! I'll be taking a picture this weekend and posting it on the blog, so if you want to see what I'm talking about exactly, make sure to check it out!

This is absolutely gorgeous. I wasn't sure if you needed sashing - but it really compliments the design. I really like how you mixed so many different prints together and still had a cohesive theme/feel. I am starting to do the same thing of making quilts very big - bigger than I planned at first.

Wow, I am so in love with this quilt!

Sometimes, I think choosing the quilting design is the hardest part. Have you ever visited Leah Day's blog before? She has a ton of beautiful free motion patterns. You might get some inspiration there. http://freemotionquilting.blogspot.com/

This is probably gonna sound like swear words but I think it needs custom quilting. Sorry! :)

As usual another beautiful quilt you have made! What about something with a swirl or open flower design that would compliment the fabric & soften the squares? If you are doing edge to edge.

I believe you will have lots to practice on when September comes around with all the quilts you are finishing up. I always feel so good when I complete UFOs.
