Quilting Inspiration

Quilting Inspiration

The number one question I get is probably "How should I quilt my top?"

Well, honestly, that's hard to answer. Would you like something fades into the background and allows the design to shine like a simple edge to edge or stitch in the ditch? Maybe you're looking for something more custom that pops off the quilt and stops people in their tracks? Maybe subtle details like birds and spiders on webs? 

Just like picking a border, there's lots of ideas. Check out the quilting that some of our Legit Quilters have done and let the ideas flow!
