    I love your colors and design of your quilt. I have no answer to your question, but wanted to let you know I like your quilt.

    I would suggest, what ever set up you use, start with a muslin quilt sandwich.. once you get the hang of it..you can switch over to your quilt top. I would have been very upset if I had started with a real quilt. The other piece, I saved for posterity..and the reason why I will ALWAYS remember to put the presser foot down! lol My other practice pieces have been made into dog beds..stuffed with my throw aways and taken to the local dog rescue. Those pooches never knew they were laying on thread art!

    There is a book, older book on Quilt as you go; Where you divide your quilt into sections and quilt it and then put the sections together. This is just and idea to try. If I remember who wrote it I will post it.

    You say this might be your first FMQ quilt. Have you had any experience in FMQ. You don't say that you have.
    If not, then I suggest you practice and practice first on smaller pieces. Why be involved with learning a new technique while wrestling a large quilt under the machine. I would find that very difficult to do.

    Looks like everyone is giving you the same suggestion as I was going to say. I've used stacked books for many things when I needed to add or enlarge a level area. BTW I think your quilt is gorgeous, love the stained glass look!
