College Quilt


This is the black and white quilt I am going to work on for my daughter before she goes to college.
I have it pieced but I still need to sandwich it and decide how to quilt it.
I am thinking of making the binding a rich red to make it pop.
I hope to make a matching runner and some throw pillows to go with it.
If I get creative enough, a wall hanging would be nice.
She picked this pattern. It came out to be queen size so quilting it will be a challenge.
I am open to ideas as to how to quilt it.

Wow.. you've got a good headstart. Are you going to machine or hand quilt it? That is huge!

machine. It is for college and much too big to hand quilt. I need some ideas for quilting.

Nice. You're going to be the first one done! Happy quilting.

my quilts sit on the quilting table a veryyyyyyyyyy long time. Finding the quilting inspiration is very hard for me.

That's my biggest hurdle to my quilts is the quilting part. I need a longarm!!! I would just stitch diagonal lines or in the ditch particularly if it's going to college.
