    Need Ideas for Quilting This

    Now that I have the top done for "The Lion Sleeps Tonight", I am not sure how to finish it. I feel that I would not want to go all over, but I do want a bit of stitching just to secure the layers. It is moderate in size... 31 x 32 inches and machine applique. Does anyone have a suggestion that would enhance my little lion?

    i'd be tempted to quilt all of the background to have your wonderful appliqes pop. on the lion, i'd sitd on the lion's details but do curly lines in the mane. maybe sitd the leaves of the tree, too.

    I am assuming this will be a wall hanging. The quilting density will depend on the batting you choose. I agree with Nancy's idea. Do an all over design on the background and then just some details on the lion and tree. You can choose some similar density pattern for the border.

    It is very cute.

    Could you quilt along the grass lines for texture in the background?

    Cute quilt. Don't know the answer to your question, all I can hear in my head are the Tokens singing "Wimoweh,Wimoweh,Wimoweh,Wimoweh..."
