    The first thing that came to my mind was stitch in the ditch or echo quilt.

    Beautiful! I would definitely stitch in the ditch so not to take away from the pattern and then do a free motion or stencil of some kind on the borders.

    WOw I just love the colors and all beautiful job. My first thought was stitch in the ditch and if you don't like that I think you can add more don't you think? 8)

    Thanks everyone for your ideas!!! I may just do a stitch in the ditch so that it does not take away from the pinwheels. I can't wait to attempt this one. I have been looking for the perfect backing and think I have decided on it. Making the topper was easy, the choices are always the hardest!

    I would use a good batting like warm and natural -- baste good and then do a stitch in the ditch quilting.
    with the warm and natural you can quilt about every 6" and make it sturdy for washing. I might
    use a nice border binding to make the colors pop

    Binding is a Batik - dark green, really looks good when I hold it up to the topper.
    Salisaquilter, thank you for your suggestions, they are much appreciated!

    :-)

    Great looking quilt, I also love the colors. I think you could tie it or sew in the ditch and it will look great.

    Love the colors. I would keep it simple with the quilting. Ditch or large meander.
