Thank you all for the comments/suggestions.
I have decided to hand quilt around the 'blossoms' and maybe some other areas. This is a scrappy PB and I really like it, so I want to take my time and do a good job of it.
The intended recipient won't mind waiting a bit longer. I will make a PB throw cushion for her Xmas gift with a note letting her know that the quilt will follow.
Once again, thank you for the replies.
