I am always stuck on the question of how to do the overall quilting on applique quilts. For example: I've attached my applique pieces to the main body of the quilt, by machine with satin or blanket stitch. How do I decide how to do the overall quilting of the quilt? Do I just quilt over the applique pieces? Do I outline them and use straight line or free motion quilting around them? How do I stop and start around the applique pieces? If you have suggestions, ideas or references I would appeciate them.
