Crescent Moon Placemat

This is one of the placemats made with a crescent moon applique that I developed on 10 July 2010.

How should I go about quilting it?

What if I echo around the outside and the inside of the applique moons using a light green thread?

I quite like this but it needs more quilting.

What if I quilt an ellipse in the center?

This works but I'm not sure it's enough.

What if I replace the large ellipse with 2 smaller ones?

I'm not sure about this either.

What if I try 2 overlapping ellipses?

I'm sure about this. I like how it looks and it does the job without being too elaborate.

Do I need to quilt around the outside?

I like how the quilting looks and I don't want to mess with it by overdoing it. What if I just stitch inside the edge using a green that matches the background?

I'm not sure this is necessary but it is okay.
