    this is a beautiful quilt,
    instead of satin stitch, how about another decorative stitch? perhaps a complimentary curvy one.
    would test on an separate sandwich first to see what happens with the different presser feet you have.

    thinking again do you need to sew? if the embroidery is holding the quilt together, suppose depends on the batting sewing distances.
    this is a lovely quilt

    Did a wall hanging once (used 80-20 batt) with a hot air balloon and satin stitched the balloon. It puckered a lot. Make a sample with scraps and your batting to test it first. You'll be using tons of thread. It's a beautiful quilt!

    I made a sample piece and I tried out several decorative stitches...they are too thin to work with that heavy embroidery. I tried the satin stitch I had in mind and wasn't thrilled. I found a satin stitch that curves that I like and it seems okey with my B foot but I ordered the walking foot and it will arrive between Thursday and Tuesday so I will wait and work with that. Never hurts to try out new things.
    As far as thread...I've already used almost 11,000 yards (maybe meters) So, a little more won't hurt, right?

    Terry ~ Absolutely love that blue quilt! Just gorgeous. I don't have any answers about what to do with your machine. The embroidered centers are so pretty.

    FYI ~ When I bought my Viking Opal 670, my generic walking foot would not fit on it. I bought a Viking specific walking foot. Retail price was $110., but she sold it to me for $40. off, since I was trading in my old mach. with its walking foot. I've been very satisfied with it -- a much better quality foot -- & feel like it was worth the money.

    good to know. I ordered this one from Walmart on line and it said it would fit the topaz 50. So I'll keep my fingers crossed. It was only $25 including shipping so if it works I thought it would be a good way to try one out and see if I have any use for it before I buy the real deal.

    I have no advice here, but agree with others, that is one beautiful quilt.

    Your quilt is gorgeous. What about using a SITD around the rings? What other decorative stitches are on your machine?

    I would like to say, what decorative stitches are not on my machine..but I tried about 7 of them and they look really wimpy next to that heavy embroidery. I am nearly certain I will use a satin stitch of some kind to tie in the white daffodils. I have auditioned a straight stitch satin and a ribbon looking one and am leaning toward the ribbon. As soon as the walking foot arrives I will begin.

As you can see, the quilt is already sandwiched so I can't use basting spray at this point and yes, I will be stitching thru all three layers. I will check the price of a walking foot this morning and I do have one square that I've been doing sample embroider patterns on but will need to sandwich it. I'll try doing that first. Any other thoughts are surely welcome.Attachment 156977
    You could try doing a feather stitch around your rings with a nice contrasting thread. What a beautiful quilt, everyone loves a blue and white quilt.
