This is a small w/h probably24*30. Did stitch in the ditch around the print batik and the bats. Should I take the metalic quilting out around the bats? How should I quilt the rest of it? Should I do tiny patterns on the scarecrow's draping fabric. And what about all the purple background? I am just so clueless. Help guys.

I LOVE that quilt! It is so unique! Don't have a clue either, how to quilt-but I like the idea of spider webs in metalic thread for part of it!

I would not take the metallic out. I think it makes the bats stand out. they would just get lost in the background otherwise. I also like the idea of spiderweb. maybe use glow in the dark thread??
