    I have a large scenic panel that I'd like to use as the center of a quilt. I will have to quilt over it somehow. Any sugestions on how to do that without messing up the scene?

    Could you just quilt along some of the lines within the scene, sort of like outlining. I did that with some flame fabric and I like the way it turned out.

    Match the thread colors to the design and follow some of the lines... outline key elements or the more subtle ones. The back of the quilt will have a beautiful outline design too :D:D:D
