You wouldn't put the effort or money on elaborate LA quilting if you had a quilt made with an average pattern and material. IMHO But when you have spent weeks and weeks of very special labor on a very special quilt you usually don't want average quilting or average batting. When you are trying to make an OMG! quilt then everything is carefully considered including pattern, colors, thread, batting, and quilting. Then your choice of quilting is as personal as your choice of all the other factors. And lots of quilters won't like the quilt you are so proud of! LOL!
