Here's a few pictures of how I quilted mine. First is as much as I could get of the whole quilt. You can click on the picture to get a larger view. Since I'm trying to disguise where each block ends and the other begins, I quilted the two blocks differently.
Do you think if you hadn't seen this whole quilt going together that you would have to think about it for a minute before figuring out the design?In the larger square of background fabric, I used variegated thread and quilted a leaf. I didn't want to meander around it so I just outlined it with a thread that matches the background fabric.
I got the leaf shape from Coloring Planet. There are all kinds of shapes you can find there when you're looking for a quilt design.
I'm one of the longarmers who thinks everything needs to be stitched in the ditch before other quilting is done so all the shapes were stitched in the ditch before any of the decorative quilting was started.
For the border, I used the same variegated thread and quilted a leafy vine in the brown areas, switched back to an off white thread and did loops in the white border.
