    I was going to suggest cross-hatching about 1/2" apart. It would make the hands really stand out.

Or you could try to convince DH, that you just can't complete this quilt without Qbot and he should go out a buy it for you right away. Qbot comes with some heart motifs, which might be appropriate for this quilt.

    I like this suggestion best :) :)

    I like the idea of echo quilting. It isn't near as hard as FMQ. JUst keep your quilting foot on the machine and all the curves will b smooth.

    What wonderful bright colors! I would do echo quilting around the hands and stitch in the ditch everywhere else. It will be wonderful no matter how it's quilted! :-P
