    SID would look nice. I can also see cross-hatching really making this pop.

    You could enlarge one of the dinosaurs and quilt that in the plain squares.

    May I suggest a meandering design with the odd baby bottle, pacifier,bootee or diaper pin thrown in. I'm not all that keen on a lot of sid. check out this site, near the bottom with a cream background. Yours need not have such intense stippling or stitching, depending on your experience, sometimes less is more. Post a pic when you're done, won't you?
    good luck.

    I almost do a large stipple or a large meandering. All the other ideas sound okay too.

    I vote for an overall crosshatch. It will get a lot of laundering.
