    I acquired 9 stamped embroidery blocks at a yard sale. I hand embroidered them last winter during the snows. I have the top pieced, but don't know what type of machine quilting would look best. Hope you can give me some suggestions after looking at these photos. I hope they appear since I am a rookie at this, but love this quilt board. Thanks.

    Very pretty! I would quilt by outlining 1/4" around all the flowers & stems, etc.

    Cross hatching always look awesome on embroidered blocks..... and it doesnt interfere with the embroidery at all.

    I agree. Crosshatching is very elegant and makes the embroidery pop!

    hand or machine quilting?
    prehaps vines,leaves & flowers in the sashing strips/borders

    the blocks are lovely.
    if you use a batt like warm & natural you have up to 10" between quilting so what ever you choose will work nicely.
