I forgot to take a proper "before" photo, so this will have to do - the borders were ditched, but the panel wasn't started.
|"Before" quilting the panel|
A moment of uncertainty struck as I pondered what to stitch, and what to leave. In the end I decided to outline everything. Including those teeny, tiny bees! (How could I not?)

Accuracy was important on the cats' faces and on the insects, but on the flowers and leaves I deliberately "missed" a tiny bit to add a sketchy sense of movement.
This view shows the panel after quilting. I left the red frames unquilted so they would puff up and help highlight the cats.
Since a variety of designs were used in the panel, I felt free to have fun in the borders, too!
My client says it is Purr-fect! (Which made my day on so many levels!) :-D
