I found this pattern in the Thimbleberries book called "Quilting for Harvest 2" and just loved the way the pattern came together. and so I decided to do something different with the open areas by appliqueing leaves on it too. It's not finished yet but I'm not sure how I should quilt it. Any suggestions?

Adding the leaves to those open areas is definitely the right thing to do!

I would let the piecing and the fabric shine in this one, not the quilting.
