    I love it as it is.
    I use Thermore batting almost exclusively. It only needs quilting every 10". Seriously, even though it would mean lots of starts and stops, I would probably do stitch in the ditch in red on the red squares, blue on the 'ribbons', quilt a star in blue in the center of the stars and quilt a leaf or some such in the trapezoids and borders.

    If you are considering doing this pattern again, since the white areas bother you, you could replace the trapezoids with a paler version of the star fabric color. Maybe do deep green stars, pale green trapezoids, burnt orange squares and gold ribbons, for a nice Fall effect.

    I know nothing about the quilting part of your question. I always send mine to a LAQ. However, I do really love your quilt! I love the pattern, the piecing, the colors, the whole nine yards! Good job and keep going to completion!

    Too bad that you have already begun quilting it, I was going to suggest that if your would like to take some of the sharpness away from the colors, you could tea dy it to make it more civil war looking. That being said, I have to say that I really like it. If you are a straight line quilter, how about diagonal quilting at 3.5 intervals across the quilt maybe using a red variegated thread. I hope that you learn to like your quilt as you work on it.
