How to Quilt an Embroidered Quilt

I finished my hand embroidered Seasons quilt during our 2009 winter get-away and have been stymied as to how to quilt it without sacrificing the beauty of the embroidery.  I took the top to a guild meeting and received some very good suggestions.  I was going to add some more embroidery to the white spaces, but now have decided that I would fill them in with quilting instead.    I needed some quilting options.

After putting it up on my design wall, I checked online and got a few ideas then went into the EQ5 program and found some perfect quilt stencils to compliment this quilt.

My next step is to make some quilt sandwiches to practice quilting these designs.  I normally cut muslin and backing squares 12″x12″ to use as practice pieces.
