the eyes have it

Quilt number 1 is done.....

 I wasn't happy with the puffy elephant.... He needed to be quilted, so back to the machine we went..
 There that is better!
and Quilt Number 1 is done....
Now for quilt number 2....
I started with this..... but once again, it needed something
So I went back to my Shiny Happy World Safari pattern
Who to pick?  I finally settled on....

this happy hippo...
and
this snake.  I love the way their eyes turned out.  On the pattern you are supposed to appliqué these itty bitty circles.  I found this stitch...an oval satin stitch shape.  I used the repeat pattern function, to have it do one repeat.... and I had 2 perfectly shaped eyes. Yippee
Off to layer it and start quilting.  But how?  All ideas welcome please.
