    How to quilt this square

    I am hand quilting 2012 Craftsy BOM. I need help on how to quilt this particular square. The other squares that I have done so far I have either echo quilted or done stitch in the ditch. Here is a picture of the block and of the quilt top.

    Hi,
    Leah uses a large spiral on this block in her class. it complements the piecing really well imho.
    Post again when you've quilted it please. I really like your quilt top, great colour choices.

    I also immediately thought of a spiral because the block already pulls you spiralling into its center. The quilt looks very nice, can't wait to see how it turns out finished!

    How about an arc on each of the pieces?
    I' thinking it would round out and soften the angles to make it more like petals.
