Quilting THE QUILT

Hi there fellow Janiacs,
I haven't been on here for quite some time!! I finished the quilt top last year and have had it in the 'Too Hard' pile ever since. I have had it basted and now face the task of hand quilting!!!! I am not sure where to start - except probably in the middle!!
Does anyone know where to find the actual quilting design? There are no tips or instructions in the book.
Many thanks,

A-1 Pinwheel Gone Awry

I printed the foundation pattern from the Dear Jane program, but mine is reversed.  I guess I was suppose to print out the mirror image.  I'm sticking with this version.

Jane's Addicted at 20%... ish.

This is what 20% looks like. I got so I had to see how my layout design was shaping up before I went any further. 

I'm arranging mine in a 'Trip Around the World' but with the blocks reorganized by motif. 

1) center crossroads (green - 1)
2) stars (yellow - 4)
3) misc circles (8)
4) appliqué (red - 12)
5) misc. (violet - 16)
6) misc. (20)
7) diamonds (blue - 24)

I won't get into all the hairy details here but there's also a giant "X" in the works and an homage to the elements. 

Couldn't quite get the whole shot - big quilt! And gee, wouldn't you think I could have ironed that dumb sheet before I tediously inserted about 100 pins?!
