Dream Catcher Quilt Top

This has got to be the craziest, happiest quilt top I’ve made to date, and I love it!

The pattern is from Kathy Doughty’s book, Adding Layers, and it’s made with solids and the amazing Marquee stripe by Kaffe Fassett.  The stripe fabric came and went long before I started looking at Kaffe’s fabrics, but a friend and I were able to scrounge enough of it from stash and a local quilt shop to make it come together.  We had to get a little bit creative by carefully piecing together a few half yard cuts and fat quarters to re-create yardage, but it worked!

We also used a different method for piecing the hourglass blocks, which required re-working the fabric requirements and cutting instructions.  It was a really fun collaborative project with a good friend.

Now I have no idea how to quilt it.  Straight lines?  Edge to edge?  I don’t want the quilting to distract the eye at all from the awesome design.  What would you do?
