Default Big Stitch Quilting

This is my first real big stitch project. I hope to continue to learn. I need suggestions as to whether the center of this quilting is OK, when stitching in this manner. I'm quite open to suggestions, as well.

Thank you

I haven't tried big stitch quilting (I would love to on a project soon--I think it looks so pretty), so I can't help by answering your question. I just wanted to comment to tell you that your quilt is really beautiful!

Thank you! I will probably not worry, as it's my quilt, right?

If you continue the big stitch through every patch in the pinwheel, the center section should result in forming an 8 pointed star and will be a delightful added element of interest.

It looks lovely, and the big stitches suit the quilt perfectly.

That looks terrific!
Can you tell me what needles you're using? I started mine but the needles are totally wrong- tapestry. The only ones that would work with perle cotton. I ordered some and am waiting for the right ones.
I also love the first pic! Gorgeous fabrics and stitches.
