How to quilt?

Finished the basting and binding yesterday but I still can't decide how to quilt it. I could quilt the two sides separately, but how?

I can only do straight line quilting by hand. Squiggly patterns look horrible if done by hand. So either diagonal lines, or outline quilting, echo quilting, that sort of thing. Suggestions please!

  1. Oh dear...I won't be much help because I have no idea what any of those mean. =) I'm just getting started...so I love to see what everyone else is doing! =)

  2. I'd probably go with diagonal lines, myself. I'm curious, how does the binding before the quilting work for you? I've never seen that before.

  3. Ohhh, it's so pretty, Nadine! Maybe some in-the-ditch quilting on the little border squares, and echo quilting in the white sashing, with Xs in the larger blocks? Looking forward to seeing what you come up with - I'm sure it will be fantastic!

  4. No matter how you quilt it, it is going to be pretty. I always have trouble deciding how to quilt something. I have one ready to quilt now and not sure how I am going to do the quilting, nor even the color thread I am going to use.
