Take a look through some recent projects to see if these examples inspire any quilting ideas for your top! This is just the beginning of what's possible. Always keep in mind that quilting scale can be easily adjusted for your preferred quilting density.
I opted to shrink this panto down to a very small scale so that the design was very dense. It would also look great on a larger scale.

Perfect for modern looking quilts. It especially plays nicely with bold geometric design and can be positioned horizontally or vertically with spacing at any interval you'd like.
