How would you quilt this?

I made this paper pieced mini quilt years ago and never quilted it.
How would you finish this little quilt?






 I'm linking up at WIP Wednesday.         (I made one of these for my sister years ago. )

have no idea! LOL
I probably would quilt it in a grid behind each individual block and then just do details in each design.. wavy lines across the eagle , lines on the scroll of the we the people to make it look like lined paper :), do the star bursts again in the firecracker one, etc.....
good luck!

This is such a fun quilt, I saw Uncle Sam right away on the WIP page! Good luck on finishing it off, I am of no help when it comes to making decisions (especially my own LOL). Thank you for linking up to WIP Wednesday!

Great little quilt. Hand quilt outlining the block as Kathie suggest. I know Kathie get her little quilts machine quilted. If you don't feel like hand quilting it ask her for the contact of the quilter - good luck with this quilt. too nice to keep it in the cupboard - Hugs

What a fun mini quilt! Perfect for free-motion quilting on a domestic. The first thing I would do is put on my walking foot and outline the sashings - I would do each window on its own, not crossing the red anywhere. Then I'd take off the walking foot, put on the free-motion open-C foot, and outline the characters or shapes. If I wanted more after that was done, I would play with fillers like McTavishing or any of the fun ones Leah Day shared over the past year.

A year ago, when I was scared of free-motioning, I would stop after Stitching the ditch of all the sashing. Then I would decide if I liked this too much to use it as a learning piece for the freemotion. If so, I'd hang it like that until I'd free-motioned a few charity baby quilts or other wall hangings and go back for the free-motion parts later.

I'd lean toward big stitch primitive quilting!
