    Very Happy looking. Great job. I say go for it and do some outlining and meander in the border. Great job.
    This too shall pass.

    I had two of these same panels and made wall/door hangers out of them with praire points top and bottom. I did outline quilting around most of the items. I did a meander in the middle portion. Turned out great. One for me and one for my Mom.

    Love what you did, and love the border!! I have the twister tool, just haven't mustarded up nerve enough to give it a go yet.
    The trouble with Trouble is.....It usually starts out like fun!!

    This is just too fun!! Halloween is my favorite time of the year. I would probably free motion around the things in the panel, and SID the twisters. I love your colors!!

    I agree. Stitching around the items on the panel wouldn't detract at all but make them stand out. You could cross hatch the twister border or meander on it instead.

    This is a really cute wallhanging and the twister border is clever. I just finished a twister wreath for Christmas and used a double needle outline (echo) on the outside and inside of the pinwheels (it would be on your black border) using red thread and green thread. Maybe you could get a varigated green/orange to use in one needle and a light color in the other needle to echo and perhaps a serpentine stitch in the purple border of panel. Let us know how you finish it.

    You could also put extra batting under certain parts - hats, bats and shoes - and outline those to give more definition.

    This is just so darn cute! I did a Christmas Tree Twister, and outlined the pinwheels. It wasn't as hard as you'd think, and it came out cute. You might try that and outlining the hats, etc... Great job on this!
