Begin quilting. I use small stitches about 1/4" apart. This holds everything in place and doesn't show very much from the front. I straight stitch around the design elements: house, roof, background trees, and path. I satin stitch the window and door. I look on the back to see where I might need some more anchor stitching. Last, I embroider the focal tree using straight, running, satin and overlapping stitches.
