You’re done!! I told you it was simple. I hope you enjoy thinking about how you might quilt this project. As with many modern designs it leaves a lot of negative space for stitching.

Prepare top to be quilted by layering backing, batting and top. Baste as desired and quilt as desired. I quilted mine with interlocking squares in various sizes corresponding with the sizes used in the top but it could also just use some vertical and horizontal lines with a heavier or decorative thread to stand out or hand stitch with big stitches in a contrasting thread. This is a great opportunity to let quilting take center stage.
