Death by Quilting Reprise - or Help How should I quilt it?

Some of you may remember last year (or there abouts) when I participated in Pat Sloan's Quilting game called Death by Quilting.

It was great fun - I made a very silly video about the whole thing. Best yet, I actually won the game. And it had nothing to do with my video, or actually anything in my control.

My winnings were pretty awesome, a wonderful bundle of Pat's fabrics (those fabrics are long gone, used in one of my favorite projects), several other goodies - including a queen of quilting crown, and a quilt top created by one of the other contestants.

Here is the top I won:

Those feet belong to my little guy.

I finished most of the quilting already. I machine quilted the top, but stopped because I didn't know what I should do with the "cottage corner"....

Any ideas?

Here is the picture I cropped. I thought it was kinda funny because my family was watching tv in the background and it looks like the guy on tv is looking at my quilting, held up by my young daughter.

Could you outline the umbrella and the cottage? blessings, marlene

I think I'd outline the house block so that from the back it would stand out too.
Then I'd quilt the house block as if it was a stand alone block-going with the applique as in echo quilting or not-just a grid.

Love the patterns you've used.
