    Fell in love with this fabric line and knew I had to do something with it. Need some ideas of how I should quilt this one with the large panel in the middle. Suggestions?

    Do a large Christmas tree in the center of the quilt and then outline all of the ornaments within the tree. Do a background fill on the area outside the tree.

    Don't think I would outline every ornament, but I would do the ornament shape as the quilting for sure. Nice quilt :thumbup:

    I like the idea of quilting ornaments all over the quilt but what size should they be? Small, medium, large. When the pattern is made up of individual pieces do you stop at the end of one and then start again with the next one or do you sew a line that connects them together? Hope that makes sense. Sometimes it's really hard to put into words what our mind is seeing. Should this pattern be over the entire quilt or maybe quilt a few ornaments on the focus panel and then do a large stipple around those?

    After I went back and reread the responses I now see I misunderstood what was said. I think I'll outline a few of the ornaments in the focus panel and then stipple the rest. Maybe do a holly leaf or poinsetta around the borders.
