I think sitd around all the major pieces would be beautiful Steve. I'd hate to have to do that on the machine with all the starts and stops, but by hand you can do it much easier. You can just go from seam to seam and cross under some of the seams by hand. Not so with a machine. If I were better at it I might be able to hide my "backtracks", but I don't have that kind of control yet. (I did mq one quilt that had blocks that I could do a continuous line around all the different bits, and that was fun, but not always possible.)

However, if I were to hand quilt those blocks, I'd take the extra bit of time and do itd all around. I think you'll be glad you did. :)
