Thank you very much everyone for your answers.
I like the idea of "shadowing" the design.
I also like the stitch in the ditch idea, but I guess I won't be able to visualise how this will work out until the blocks are together.
Is there a distance that the quilting stitches should be apart as a maximum? There is so much conflicting information on the internet.
It looks like I will need a walking foot so I think I will take a trip to my janome specialist in the near future and ask some questions there.
Adelaide Girl: I am in the north east of Adelaide - Modbury area.
quiltluvr: Good idea on the library. I keep forgetting we have quite a large one nearby. Thanks!
gaigai: youtube video was great thanks!
Thankyou everyone for your help so far! I will come back with updates (and more questions probably)
