    How should I quilt this?

    I'm not even close to ready to actually quilt this yet, but I wanted to start early with the suggestions. I need to do something simple. Not free motion quilting for me!!!! Straight lines kind of quilting, but with each block being quite different, I'm a little stumped on just how to do it. Please note that I will be using a camel colored backing and border and I will be using green thread to quilt, so the back of the quilt will be very contrasted. Hence, my concern with crazy lines that will be very evident.

    If you don't try, you can never do.

    I would probably do diagonal lines but mark them all out with a ruler so they are as straight as possible. This is a very cool quilt. I like that you used the badges in some of the blocks.

    You could also use a meander over the whole quilt.

    you could match your bobbin thread to the backing to minimize contrast. No suggestions as to quilting it, I have that same problem with every quilt I make.
