I've been doing stitch in the ditch for my quilts, as well as cross-hatching, plus the decorative stitches on my machine, to secure the layers. 

I'd like to get into free motion.  I've been practicing different motifs on muslin sandwiches.  Flowers, stippling, etc.

What I wonder is there a place that talks about what kinds of motifs look best in different blocks.

For example, I'm doing the following right now:


I'm doing stitch in the ditch at the moment, but I'd like to do some free motion in the blocks.  Any ideas on what would look best? 

I'm sure after I do a few, I'll be able to see for myself, but for now it would be nice to get some direction in choosing.
