    Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous. I love echo quilting and that was my first thought, then I realized that small stippling would really make the applique pop up and out so that is my choice.

    Never regret growing older, its a privilege denied to many.
    Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

    Oh my word! That's gorgeous! I agree with what several other posts suggest... I think echo would be good. As intricate as this top is, I think the simpler the quilting, the better (but that's just my opinion). You should be super proud of this beauty! It's stunning!

    What a wonderful quilt! It's just stunning. I have no words of wisdom on how to quilt it; but be sure to post again when the quilting's finished too.

    As soon as I say your top and desire for input, I hoped Charisma would give input - I see she did! now I look forward to seeing your final piece of art.

    Beautiful!
    Thanks Charismah! I was hoping I'd see your input on this one!
    I agree with Charismah, this deserves the "little more" than stipple, but not overpowering. Don't forget to SID around all the applique too. This will make the applique just pop out. Can't wait to see it finished!

    I would go with the small stippling-there really isn't enough space to do more than a round or 2 of echo quilting and the stippling would make the motifs stand out even more-Great job-it's beautiful

    how you folks have the patience to do these is beyond me....I just stick to squares, strips and half sqs. LOL guess I just need too much instant gratification.
