    How should I quilt this banner?

    Looking for ideas on quilting this banner, not good at stippling or meandering any other ideas? Thank you for your help, Michele

    How about a huge spiderweb, find one in a colouring book and just enlarge the idea. Oh look, Leah Day has a you tube. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4RR39N7anr0

    I would outline stitch just outside of all the appliqués first and between the different coloured fabrics. I think that would probably be enough quilting for a wallhanging. Check the batting for how far the quilting lines can be spaced. If you need a little more quilting, I would make a bat template out of Mac tac or something similar and stitch around the outline matching the background fabric with the thread colour.

    Love your wallhanging! I made this one for a customer by looking at one in a keepsake magazine. I stippled mine but I like the idea of a spiderweb.

    Shadow stitch everything, then put a big spider web behind the whole thing. It doesn't need close quilting; it's a wall hanging! It's also really cute!!

    Me and invisible thread just don't get along. I like the idea of a big spider web, what color thread do you think would be a good choice? I thought white.....thanks for all the ideas, Michele

    I just went to google.ca and then images & typed in The Witch Is In and found a few examples of your wallhanging, most of them quilted in the same colour as the background fabric. I think that might be a good idea as I don't think you want the quilting to "take over", just to add to what you have.
