    Default ideas please!

    This is my late MIL's needle turn applique table topper that I am finishing for the family. Not sure how to quilt it. I am thinking of small stipple in only the beige areas so the applique becomes the focus of the project. I appreciate your thoughts on this. Thanks

    I like your idea, depending on how much time you want to put into it, you might also SID right along side the applique.

    beautiful design
    how about joining backing to front is bagging the term?
    like your idea
    because you asked for ideas
    thought about copying the star shape, for quilting in the 4 squares in middle of red flower buds,
    suppose it depends on the batting, and how this will be used, to how much or little you do.

    love that your also adding your stitchery skills to the family quilt.

    I think you could do a design in the beige area between all the red blossoms, a simple wreath. Then in the arched areas of the stems a church window beveled glass design. Then stipple the rest.
    Quilters never die, they just go batts.
