    I'd do a larger meander with lots of loops in it, to off set all the straight angles. It's something you can do on your machine, too, as its not hard to do! Just finished a queen done that way.

    I'm not sure about the edge-to-edge, but I saw this variegated Aurifil #4651 28wt thread used at my LQS today & it looked really nice. Blends well with pretty much everything & picks up a couple of the colors in your quilt.

    Depends on your budget! If you're able to do a custom or light custom rather than an all-over, I'd be might tempted to use a 'celtic' design. Here are some examples from Ann Bright designs (not affiliated, but love her designs!) - http://www.annebright.com/shop/search/?keywords=celtic - either an allover (pantograph) or one of the designs in the 'block', with line dancing in the little squares surrounding the block, and feathers in the white circular areas.

    I'd ask for a light thread - have your long-armer puddle some different threads on the quilt so you can see how it will show up when quilted.

    Your long-armer will have suggestions for sure, ask for ideas. They may have samples of designs they've done before. One of the things I like to do - I have a piece of plastic (think of the plastic used to cover tablecloths) that I've bound with painter's tape (so I know where the edges stop) - I use crayola washable marker to audition potential designs - draw them out - to preview how they look on the quilt.

    Have a good discussion with the long-armer, be sure you understand and agree with the quilting plan!

    Beautiful quilt!

    I don't know about the quilting but your quilt is beautiful.

    Of course Reggie has to inspect your fabric as well as your projects, it's part of their nature to be curious. Your quilt is beautiful, however, I do not have any ideas for how it could be quilted, as I'm a SID and crss-hatching quilter.

    Patti p, this is an optical illusion making it look like there are curves but it is all straight lines. Try this site for the pattern http://www.fonsandporter.com/article...40_quilt_block.

    Thats the beauty of this pattern! It actually DOES NOT have curves! :P It only "appears" after the 2 blocks are joined together row by rows!Beautiful job BTW
