Quilting Fall Frolic

Working with the wool felt blocks lately has made me think of the other wool felt quilt I pieced and which has been waiting to be quilted - Fall Frolic. Part of the reason for this is that I haven't made up my mind how I want to quilt it, other than by hand and with an outline around the appliqué.

So I pulled it out this evening and put it I my quilting hoop and started that outline quilting in the center block (click photo for larger view).

Have any of you quilted (either by hand or by machine) a quilt with wool felt appliqué? If so, how did you quilt it? Or even if you haven't, how would YOU quilt this? I am leaning toward a cross hatching in the background after I outline the pieces, but I'm not 100% sure about that. I also have quilting to do in the pieced areas, and have no idea how I'm going to do those either.

For reference, here is the finished quilt top.
