How to Quilt This??

 
I've been reading Bonnies blog entries about how she decides to quilt things... I have always done in the ditch straight lines till I got my Pfaff last year for my birthday which can do free motion. Now I have done a bunch of meanders, but you can ruin a quilt with an all-over pattern like that if it doesn't need it...

How do you decide which way to quilt something? I still have so much to learn!! How would you quilt this scrappy flannel quilt? I plan on piecing the back with flannel scraps from some lovely Stasbusters!! Posted by Picasa

I'd be tempted to just meander that one... There are not repetitive parts in teh blocks - the plaid is busy - but I would try to match the sashing....

Caveat - I ususally let the long armer make the quilting decisions....
