I went to my local Joann's today to get some white thread, and quickly found out that they are moving to another building therefore they are selling EVERYTHING for 50-75% off. Well I did not get my white thread, but I did walk away with 120 dollars worth of fabric for 60 dollars and some change.
While I was there I found some of the printed quilt panels, this is what the panel I got looks like. I got chenille for the backing, I have made several quilts, but I don't know how I should quilt this one. I will be layering it with warm and natural and quilting it with just the top and the batting then adding the chenille to the back after the quilting is done and then binding the whole thing.

My question is how should I quilt this panel?

I don't want to get to labor intensive I need this done (among other projects I am working on) by the end of the month, this will be donated for a raffle, which will benefit "Relay for Life" an American Cancer Society program to raise money for cancer research!

I would probably do major lines around the animals (elephant face, giraffe head, monkey body/torso... as if you were making a child's colouring book outline) and maybe their eyes, not worrying too terribly much about the rest of it, but that's just me.

That is how I always see them done and displayed at Joann's

I know this is probably too late, but I agree with the outline thing, but would also add a little to the leaves, and maybe a butterfly trail in the sky portion.  You need to read the directions on your batting, it will tell you how far apart you can quilt it.
