This is the quilt top I'm getting for Christmas. It's one big cloth with applique. I am not used to marking my own quilts. I only own 2 stencils, and I don't think either would fit this style! However, I can't figure if I want to just quilt around the applique and do a cross-hatch or do something more dramatic in all that white space? I've always played it safe (because I'm usually working with customer's quilts) and love the fact that there's no seams to worry with and that there's all that "canvas" to show off on!
If I decide to cross-hatch, I'll probably machine quilt it. I am not good enough with the machine to do anymore than a straight line! However, if I do anything more than a straight line, I'll hand-quilt it.
