Flimsy finish and runner

I have attached the borders to the quilt begun with a fat quarter as its centre. That's the deer in the centre, now framed by geese and Barbara Fritchie stars. It took quite a bit of maths and juggling to get the spacing looking right on those larger stars, but now it's done it's worth it. That's the frustration and joy of making things up as you go along!

The question now of course, is how to quilt it? I'm happy to do the custom work on my machine, but I don't want to over quilt it. Would an all over loop work or not? Any suggestions welcome. It took a while to get the borders on, I changed my mind about purpose bought fabric (it was darker and more blue than this more golden, autumn colouring), and I'm happier with my final choice. 

I'm also pleased to have completed the table runner, again with a different fabric than I had originally tried out, this time for the binding, . Honest friends are very helpful telling you when it's just not the right shade or even colour. The binding now also goes really well with the pale green on the backing. So that's a win as well. 

Until next time,
