I had been working hard in the evenings piecing on some of my quilt blocks and needed a break.
I chose three unfinished tops and tried to find some inspiration on how to quilt them. I started off with my Holiday in Kashmir top. It is made up of the same block with sashing.
I was pretty happy with what I came up with so I moved on to my Jelly Roll Race quilt top. It is basically a strip quilt and my two basic thoughts are to quilt something different in each strip section or do an all over design of some sort.
As of right now, if I can find a nice variegated thread, my favorite is the wavy lines in the middle picture. They should add a nice texture and movement to the quilt.
My last quilt top is something I pieced very early on. I have allowed it to set around forever because I hate my fabric choices. Looking at it today, I don't feel like they flow well together, so every time I try to figure out a way to quilt it I get frustrated. I could just do a very basic over all design, but I think a more custom job will do it justice. (At least it will in my head)
