FMQ Friday - Metro Hoops Pillow sham

From making my Metro Hoops quilt top, I had 4 blocks left to make another hoop. Unfortunately I had realized that I had extra four blocks only at the end and had already used all pink for the last 4.
I am making a pillow out of this extra hoop. I was thinking of how to quilt it and couldn't think of anything other than feathers. I also liked what Jenny @SewKindOfWonderful did with her quilt. But yet, I wanted to explore myself too.

I think I might go with this for the center:
Metro Hoops Pillow - with extra block
I still haven't gotten bored with quilting feathers. For the outer ring/hoop I might just Quilt-in-the-ditch and then echo it once. The outer most negative space I'm thinking of some straight line quilting.

That's all for today!
Happy Quilting!
