I finished this cat quilt last night and I just cant seem to get any inspiration on how to quilt it.
Usually I would just put the quilt away and think about it but I have time to sew this weekend.
So any suggestions would be most welcome.

I made thus same quilt (with different fabrics) what I did was sits around the borders and around the cats. Then I did heavy fmq in the white space around the cats and in the large outer border. I did a different fmq design for each row and did micro stippling in the really tight spots between the ears. I love the way it turned out for me.

Not one suggestion, but the quilt is gorgeous. Good luck!

And I want to add, perhaps you can tell from my Avatar, but I am a cat lover!

I do not know if you enjoy hand work... but what about whiskers? ...

Like this but for fuller....> < in a contrasting embroidery thread. It is very cute when done. About every 8 inches or so. Just a thought.
