    I would probably quilt around the outlines of the flowers and pumpkins.

    I would do some crosshatching on the brown background fabric in half the size that the arrow heads are in the border. I would do much outline quilting around all the fruits, veggies etc. I love prints I can outline on, it just seems to bring them to life! I love your fabrics!!

    Love your table runner. Don't have any advice on how to quilt it, but really love the colors, pattern and fabric.

    That runner is really stunning! I think I'd just pick out some of the larger fruits/squash and outline quilt those.

    Thanks to all for the suggestions on how to quilt it.....No pattern - I just cut the center part from yardage and then framed it with a 1" border and decided on scrappy paper pieced flying geese for the outside border....added cornerstones to "anchor" the piece. Easy peasy!!

    where did you find the center print? I love it.
    I would either outline the larger items (veg's and such) or just stitch in the ditch around the large print.
