    Your quilt is beautiful!!! I am envious. I think it is the best cat quilt I have seen.

    You might check the instructions on the Warm and Natural. I think it says to quilt every ten inches. That might be good news for you...

    such a cute quilt top. Can't wait to see it quilted. Any kind of quilting makes the quilt so much better. I think an all over stipple would look great.

    First, I really like it. I think eyes give animals personality, so I'd recommend giving them eyes.

    I think a meander with injections of mouse, bird, fish, cheese and other cat/mouse related figures would do for quilting.

    Love the quilt! Yes, you can stitch through the applique...and that's all I know. Not very good at the machine quilting ideas. Basically I do a straight stitch or echo kind of quilting. I like the playfulness of your quilt. Cute!

    The eyes are buttons...they will go on after quilting!!!

    I think whatever you decide to do will be great! I don't really have any advice for you: sorry! But I hope you post a photo when you have completed it!

    I think echo quilting would really punch up the kitties.

    Love the cats but the one mouse made me smile. I would quilt around the shapes shadow or meandering.

    If the batting says 5" then you can stitch 1" inside each block and be safe. I do not have a long arm but have heard that SID is much harder to do than meandering /stippling on a long arm.
