Cyndi's quilt was one of those quilts!!
i pebbled the background and pretty much outlined all the applique, so you can imagine how many thread changes were involved...i choose to not quilt the pieced blocks, but did echo or SID the bigger patches that needed to be nailed down. this was hard for me, cause i usually dense quilt everything- but i like the look of how not quilting defines certain areas (filed away for future reference)
