A little progress

I started quilting Diane's quilt on New Year Day.
I am really loving the way it is
developing.  I say developing
because I knew how I wanted to quilt some areas
but others remain a mystery, so
it is developing.
Feathers in the middle.
I'm thinking some pebbles and McTavishing around the
applique.  What do you think?  Or a circle, maybe 3/4 inch,
right there between the feathers and flowers, straight
up from that leaf. 
I had already rolled the top, but look a little dragonfly,
It's in her new book Quilting Wide Open Spaces.
Great book by the way.
Then there was two.
Then three finished.
Applique stitched around.
Almost ready to start the background fill.
Linking  up with Sarah
Have a wonderful weekend and stay warm.
We are having really cold weather in TN.
