    This is just too fun!! Halloween is my favorite time of the year. I would probably free motion around the things in the panel, and SID the twisters. I love your colors!!

    I agree. Stitching around the items on the panel wouldn't detract at all but make them stand out. You could cross hatch the twister border or meander on it instead.

    This is a really cute wallhanging and the twister border is clever. I just finished a twister wreath for Christmas and used a double needle outline (echo) on the outside and inside of the pinwheels (it would be on your black border) using red thread and green thread. Maybe you could get a varigated green/orange to use in one needle and a light color in the other needle to echo and perhaps a serpentine stitch in the purple border of panel. Let us know how you finish it.

    You could also put extra batting under certain parts - hats, bats and shoes - and outline those to give more definition.

    This is just so darn cute! I did a Christmas Tree Twister, and outlined the pinwheels. It wasn't as hard as you'd think, and it came out cute. You might try that and outlining the hats, etc... Great job on this!
