    A very pretty prairie peony. I like how you have added bright colors in the buds. I hope you show it again after the quilting, because it will be stunning then.

    How pretty! I think I would outline stitch the motifs and do a fill in pattern in the backgrounds to make them puff up. Maybe echo or stippling in the white?

    Very pretty!! I've not seen this pattern before, it's lovely - as is your execution!!

    I would outline the applique then do a small fill in the white areas - stipple, pebble, mctavish ... or even a mix of all of them in different blocks. I would also outline the sashing and the corner blocks. Perhaps a vine in the sashing.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    I agree with Tartan....quilt it in a way that makes your beautiful work standout. Stippling in the white background would work well.

    The only suggestion I have is that you send it to me! It's stunning. Absolutely stunning!

    I love it. I think I would stitch in the 2 ditches to make the 3 peony parts pop, then stipple or meander the background to emphasize the rest of the applique.

    What a master project. Can you give us some detail. How long it took, why you chose the peony, impressions from what must have been a long quilting journey. Oh did I mention I like it?

    I agree with QM! Your work is so pretty doesn't need much quilting.
