    If it is a wall hanging, I would humbly suggest Misty Fuse...the least stiff fusing I've found. Picked some up at the booth at the Houston quilt show last year and it works like a dream-strong, yet very pliable and soft. For reference, it comes in white or black.
    Creative clutter is better than idle neatness.

    This was my first thought. I also liked this idea: An organza overlay (not fused ... just laid over it) might hide any quilted lines and give a nice shimmer effect as well (the shimmer effect overpowering the background and any quilting lines) from DogHouseMom.

    Have you given any thought to invisible thread if it needs quilting. Maybe a few wavy lines going horizontal with invisible thread? So you don't lose your sky affect. What ever you decide I'm sure it will turn out great!! There is some really awesome sky fabric all over online!

    Quilt some cloudy shaped things with the same back and forth stitches that you would do in water.

    I use Misty fuse front and back to the batting.
