Decisions Decisions

Quilting an exquisite and fairly complex pattern of images on a cotton drapery fabric is a fun challenge. I'm certainly not getting bored with all the variety I see in the original overdyed cloth.

Here's a printed area of stacked leaves ( color in pic is a bit brighter than reality... I hate that.) .
For this design, a simple inside outside line of quilting to reinforce the look of leaf edges seems to work for me.
There is so much activity (multiple/varied images on the original fabric) that sometimes a simple 'knock down' of the background is enough to show off the important images that I doubt I will quilt at all lest they be large and beg otherwise.
