Help me out, Chelsea!

I don't know if I'm still eligible, but I've got a quilt I've been stuck on for a while.
I'm hoping that maybe Chelsea will pick me and help me out of my rut.

pins & bobbins

See, I made this quilt MONTHS ago as part of a QAL.  (The Stained QAL run by Sarah over at Narcoleptic in a Cupboard.)
It is currently one of my all time favorite tops.  (Yes, I can say that, the other one I think may top it isn't actually done yet.)  It's sitting in a chair, unfinished.

It was, perhaps, the beginning of my love of fuschia and lime together.

Stained Quilt top, finish!

I think it's about 45 by 55 ish.  I just don't know how to quilt it,  and I'm terrified of ruining it.
I was thinking maybe bubbles in the pinks, following the diagonals in the ironwork, straightlines? I'm open.  I really just want something that will ADD to it, not take away from it.

Help me, Chelsea!


  1. I could see doing the quilting in a pale grey or the pale blue....and with so many lines in the quilt maybe stitching in the ditch would be neat....but I'm new to quilting things myself so I'm sure others will have better input! Looks lovely though!!!

  2. I know exactly how you feel about quilting it, but with my lack skills I plumped for straight lines x

  3. Great job! I just did a stained glass block for someone in my Stash Bee. It was actually a fun block to put together. Good luck on your decision.

    Are you going to AMQG this month?

  4. I despise quilting! I have only ever hand quilted...I don't trust myself with the machine quilting =D

  5. My fingers are crossed for you, dear!
