What advice would you give someone starting this project? Hi Jacquie, this is the quilt that you could not see on my previous postings. My first foundation piecing quilt and colors I would not usually use.Can't warm to this one, so perhaps some of your great advice on quilting might see me finish it. I was thinking of radiating lines from the corner of each block or echoing the overall serpentine design. Thanks perhaps some

Thanks so much for posting it here. When I look at the quilt I see that snakelike movement on the diagonal and I think emphasizing that would be the way I would go. I would echo those curves and where the curve ends I would echo the straight edge up and over. I wouldn't stop at the border either. I would extend the curves into the borders to keep a continuous quilting line. Let me know if that makes sense.

Forgot to add...within the beauty blocks I would do radiating lines with the focal point at the corner of the block with the echoing curves between the blocks.

Did you get my response about the birch quilt?

Thanks Jacquie, a great solution combining both radiating lines in the beauty blocks and following the curved snake like movement. Continuing the quilting into the border is something I did not think of, that will look interesting! Your help is much appreciated. I have started the quilting on the Madonna quilt and it is looking very interesting.
