    Wink another "how would you quilt this"

    This is a little wall hanging that I am having a hard time deciding how to quilt. I thought about...
    1)a spiral starting in the center and going out but would I quilt over the embroidery?
    2)spirals starting in the center of each sun and radiating out which would over lap in the center
    3)circles (instead of sprials) using one of the above methods
    4)a circle around the embroidery then rays coming out from there to the edges.
    Hope someone can follow what I'm saying or give me some other ideas. I am not a very good free motion quilter so simple is best.
    Sorry for the poor picture, my camera has a scratched lens, and the colors look sick.

    Hmmm, how about Big Stitch hand quilting with a matching (not black) thread or even a variegated thread with your sunshine-y colors? You could do spirals in each big snowball. Then a scroll like design or two mirror sprirals that join in the middle in each of those sections surrounding the embroidery. This quilt reminds me of the eclipse.* Very sharp and modern. I like it a lot!

    *Oh silly me. I just magnified it on my iPad and read your embroidery....

    How about circling your embroidery and making radiating circles outward. And then do the same with each of your sunbursts? You could have overlapping quilting in the more modern style of quilting, since it is a modern quilt.
    Good luck & happy quilting.

    use Angellights suggestion for the embroidery block, then I'd do some type of Celtic knot, or similar motif that would include the whole block on the other black circles.

    I like that idea. Nice wallhanging too, btw!

    Thanks for the ideas. I think I will get something to put over the quilt and try out some of the suggestions. Will post pics when completed.
