Don, so good to see your work. Sorry I don't have any suggestions. But I love what you have done so far. Maybe a elongated diamond?

Wow, Don -- your center star quilting is great; looks very nice with the same stitching in the small pieces of the arcs. If you think it needs further quilting, maybe simply repeat the stitching you did on the smaller pieces, 1/4" around the inner edge of the eye shape. That would complement the wonderfully stitched center stars without competing with them. It's always inspiring to see your excellent work.

Don, I have no input for quilting ideas, just has to admire your works in progress. As always a real treat!
