I have an old quilt top (30+ years) that I would like to quilt with my Tin Lizzie. Read about not quilting thru appliques, but how about cross stitch embroidery? I was thinking of diagonal cross hatching that would line up with the direction of the cross stitch. Should I start and stop at the cross stitch or go thru it? The cross stitched area of each 12" block is about 8". The backing is a sheet, and I'm replacing the old polyester bat. The owner didn't like the pillowcased edge with poly lace, so I will be binding with a repro fabric to match the cross stitch color.
