I did this quilt last week for a client. She made it for a young woman, as a tribute to her grandmother. It has photos and embroidery on the quilt, which she did not want stitched on. These blocks were (I think) about 5" square. In my opinion, they are a little large to not be stitched, even a little bit with a clear thread, but maybe the quilt won't get heavy use which would wear the batting in these areas.
