Maybe this a an omeno for a good quilty year!

Yesterday and today I have been able to apply myself, thanks to my darling husband and finally get this quilt finished that I started back May. The little girl that it is meant for is turning one in March and it was meant to be her birth present Oops :(


Know I just have to decide how to quilt it, I have three different ways in mind, the first an all over stiple which I would most likely get professional done, the second quilting all over on the angle following the lines of the quilt, like this




and the third quilting the small "birds" on a angle and echoing the large "birds" triangles



What do you think?

As far as new year resoluation or plans, I am still working though my list that I did back here, so I might copy this over to the right hand side. I will be back at a later date to do a 2009 wrap up and post a few pics of my final 2009 projects.

I like the second option best

I would go with an all over stipple as first choice or the diagonal quilt lines as 2nd choice ;)

I am with car. Good practice for stippling too. That is something I want to conquer this year!!

Just to be different, I'm not sure stippling would suit the angular feel of the quilt. I quite like option three, followed by two. But I can be contrary like that! I find choosing a quilting pattern hard too!

Wow, what an amazing quilt! I must say that I'm not always a fan of stippling, I like quilting that takes into account the design of the quilt. So it would have to be 2 or 3 for me :)
