What advice would you give someone starting this project? Not sure what advice I can give. I am posting this to get advice. I am wondering how I should quilt these small wallhangings. The fabric blocks have a muslin backing. Should I quilt them without a batting? How should I quilt it? Stipple or other background quilting in the background of the flowers and sashing blocks? Outline quilt? Echo quilt? Just stitch in the ditch? They have sat all this time (more than 5 years I believe) because I guess I did not know how I should finish them. Can anyone help? I love the top as is and don't want any quilting to take away from what I already have. I guess it is good that I have 2, then if I don't like what I have done with 1 I can do the other one differently.

I love the idea of echoing the background around the flowers and stitch-n-ditch the flowers with cross hatch around the boarders. My kind of work, I love this. Great job can't wait to see it finished.

These are so fabulous, sorry I cant give you advice, only a new quilter myself. It will be some time before I could achieve this.

It's beautiful,.I think if a wall hanging you don't have to put batting before the backing.

Oh my, I forgot that this was supposed to be my next project. I really need to get organized and get busy.
