Am I done?.......

I have quilted all of the seams where the blocks are joined and the center seam of each 16 patch in both directions which gives the effect of 4 patches.  Now I need to decide if I want to stop here which will make a really soft quilt or continue and quilt the remaining 36 seam lines.




Here are some color schemes for quilts:

Thanks Wanda. Nature is a perfect place to find color schemes.

I am especially fond of the artwork of Wolf Kahn for color scheme ideas:

We over look the obvious when it comes to color. Chris

I think you've done enough quilting on this one. What thread did you use to quilt it? I especially like the colors in the last picture.

I say go for it and quilt it up. Once a quilt has a lot of quilting, it becomes a three dimensional sculpture to me and takes more of nature's characteristics on. Love the inspiration.

I think soft quilts are the best!

I LOVE that salmon and green color combination.

I know you will decide the best way to finish off your quilting on this one.

Photo's are gorgeous and I can see you are gearing up for some wonderful combinations ahead. Every photo even has my head spinning with ideas.

The burning bush is definitely in my favorite colorway.

Are you quilting this on your long arm, or domestic? How I wish I had a long arm.....one day soon hopefully! Love your burning bush!

I like how your color dominates the quilt not the quilting - I like soft quilts and with most batting now we do not have to quilt it to death as you see so many in recent years - then it comes more about the quilting and not the design of the quilt pattern itself. Sometimes I feel I put too much quilting in some of my quilts although I normally like it when I get done I see that I could have left some of it out.

I have a hard time knowing when to quit quilting sometimes. I like the softer quilts, but I like the "sturdiness" of some of the more densely quilted ones, too. Decisions, decisions! Your quilt color inspirations are beautiful.

The second picture of the petals on grass is a gorgeous colour combination for a quilt!

My fire bush is very faded this year. Maybe it will turn real red but so far it hasn't. Yes, nature is a great place to pick some colors that go together.

It is always hard to decide whey you have enough or need more!
