There is a printed panel available called Dream Big. It's a close-up of a big petaled flower. The original idea was to quilt a different motif in every petal or every round of petals. The results have been simply outstanding and breathtaking. Most people leave the panel as-is, i.e. no borders, but I've recently seen a picture where the quilter put a kinda/sorta Drunkards Path as a border around it and it was unbelievably effective!
I know that Mishii has done a couple. I have a couple that are still unquilted.
Recently, over on another forum (MeWe's "Quilting Time"), a member, Susan Cline, recently posted her completed Dream Big. Hers is in shades of gray and she quilted it in RED. HOLY MOLEY! Such a bold move!
She did a different quilting motif in every round of petals. The motifs she chose are not particularly intricate or difficult but I think she achieved exactly the right note of density and varied designs. In the first round of petals, the design resulted in quite a build-up of thread at the end of the petal closest to the center. The concentration of color is AMAZING. I honestly would never have thought of doing that, mostly because with highly contrasting thread, you need to be Very Careful and sure of your quilting!
I just love what she's done.
If any forum member has read Pirate's posting and has the urge to give the Dream Big panels a whirl I have two of them that are looking for a new home. Reimburse me for the postage and they are yours.
I had big ambitions (once upon a time) but the pacemaker/defibrillator implant has made working at my HQ Avante a no-go situation because the magnet gets my implant a bit excited. As you can see by the photo my colors for these panels are ivory-beige and yellow-orange-red.
Contact me using PM through the forum.
That is very nicely done! I like it....

OH NO! That's AWFUL. Judy, I feel so badly for you. What a horrid disappointment that you can't use your Avante any longer. :-(
Too bad you can't rig up a shield of sorts, either around the magnet in the Avante or around your torso .. kinda like Kevlar vests ... to deflect the magnet effects.
Oh I’m absolutely doing this next time. Love it!
I mentioned the issue when I went in for my three month follow up at the pacemaker clinic and the technician looked at me like he had never heard of such a problem before. He agreed that if this piece of sewing equipment made my pacemaker "buzz" with a "tingling" sensation then I should avoid it.
Yeah, thanks, dude.
Mishii is the lucky winner in my give-away.

obviously, I totally missed it. Must not have been wearing my glasses. :-(
