    Love the quilt – definitely some coloured hand quilting around the raindrops! x

    Oh, I love this! I think I’d quilt some very gentle vertical curves, to replicate the fall of the rain.

    I absolutely love this quilt. It is effective, fairly easy and quick, can be adapted to any colour scheme, and a great us to use up scraps. x

    Love, love this quilt – and the different cute raindrops appliqued on top of it. Not sure on the quilting – I always struggle with that for my own, but looking forward to what you decide on!

    Well, you surprised me and I love it!! As for quilting… I love your waves and maybe you can echo them around the shape of the raindrops.

    What a cute top! No clue, other than to simulate rain by gently curving quilt lines.
