Quilt

This is a photograph of some mushrooms I took on our road and printed on fabric. I hand stitched them heavily and have now strip pieced them into a small hanging. Now to decide on the quilting. Do I use curves to echo the outsides of the mushrooms or do I use groups of radiating straight stitch to echo the centers? Opinions?

I am not a quilter but my vote would go with the radiating lines... a la vaulted ceiling type of thing.

I was first going to say the outline of the mushrooms but then when I pictured it in my head I changed my mind.
I think because of the pieced background,the lines would look better.
It would unite the whole block.

No good me trying to give advice but I love what you have done so far.

what a beautiful color combo you used here. I think the radiating lines would look great.
