Quilting Suggestions

After finishing my Drunkard's Path last September I finally have time to quilt it!  The problem is that I am not sure exactly how to quilt it.  I was thinking feathers?  I've never done feathers before - what do you think?
 I was thinking in these spots a butterfly with feathers as the wings or maybe just feathers coming out from the center.
 And theses spots a feather wreath that will have extra feathers extending into the arms, what would you do?
The lump under the top is a cat, he was asleep and did not want to move!  LOL
I know the quilting will really show up on the white so I am open to suggestions!

Thank you!

Such a pretty quilt! You quilting plan sound wonderful. I think I would have to add some simple crosshatching also.

Pretty quilt. Feathers would work well, I think.

When I saw this I thought of a quilt I saw once on pinterest that combined circular, straight line and a motif quilting in a drunkards path quilt. The blocks are not the same but some of the ideas might work for you. Here ... http://www.pinterest.com/pin/224405993907918020/

Hope this helps. Looking forward to seeing your pretty quilt quilted ... :) Pat

Feathers and swirls would work really well.

Oh it sounds like fun. I know that there are several different online blogs that have great tutorials on doing feathers etc. on a domestic machine.
