I am stuck at the point where I need to quilt this and get it off my dining room table. There may be familial revolt soon, and we donít want that, do we?

Violet Craft designed this Elephant Abstractions quilt and shows a simple pattern of horizontal lines for quilting on the packaging. I could probably do that at my skill level. It is a modern quilt and that would fit as a quilting pattern.

I have been tossing around the idea of some leaves and grass as an all over quilt design. Itís what elephants eat!  I feel that as much effort and care as this top took to piece that I should do something fancier than parallel lines.

So, I am stuck. What to do. What to do?

Leaves and grass sound really cute! An all over stipple would be nice too. I love the color palette you picked!  Violet had to really hustle to get those quilts ready for Quilt Market which is why they all ended up straight line quilted lol! My bestie pieced either the elephant or the giraffe for her, I forget which.

Funny to know the history, here I was overthinking it as a design choice.

I decided on the parallel lines. Thanks for the reply, though!

I put 18 lines of parallel stitching in and pulled them all out. Even pinned, the top shifted badly.

Back to square one.

Have you ever spray basted?  I exclusively spray baste,  faster than pinning and it doesn't shift like pins can
