Salt Water Triangles, ready to quilt!

I was very happy to get this quilt basted last night after the kids were in bed.  I still don't know how to quilt the main part of the quilt, which is okay since I know I won't be able to start the quilting until Sunday.

The outer border is burgundy, not black!

I do plan to use a light pink thread to quilt feathers around the outer border, and possibly swirls or loops around the pink border with burgundy thread.  Most of the triangle quilts I've seen online have straight line stitching, either in the ditch or 1/4 inch from the seams usually.  I'm just not convinced that would be the right quilting for this quilt.  How would you quilt it?  Or if you've made a triangle quilt, how did you quilt it?  Share a link in the comments, I would love to see it!  :-)

  1. How pretty! I love the Salt Water line! I'm not a very brave fmq yet, so I'd go for straight lines 1/4" from the seams :)
